“ My hope is to give our students the best education possible.  But, more than that, to raise up graduates who love the Lord wholeheartedly and live for Him with zeal and passion for the rest of their lives.”

“My hope, for the students of Upton Lake, is that our decisions as a board ensure that our students are led and nurtured by mature, discerning Christians, who are teachers of and watchmen for the truth of God’s Word.  In addition to a sound education, it is my hope that our students will have a foundation of sound doctrine, and graduate as mature and discerning Christians, enabling them to navigate this world as true believers, living lives in service to God.”
