Core commitments

We educate the whole child

We are committed to the highest quality of education through academics, arts, faith, and service.

We are a learning community. We build classroom communities where students understand that they live lives of meaning and purpose. We nurture connection, curiosity, and risk-taking. Learning together is full of joy and beauty.

We believe in creating unity as we embrace diversity. By engaging with our differences, we teach our students to genuinely know themselves, their neighbors, and the world.

Our students become compassionate advocates who care for their communities and world.

We are rooted in the Christian faith

Mustard Seed is a Christian school that welcomes families of all faiths and backgrounds.

We gather for community worship daily and see each child as a beloved child of God. We teach our students that all are loved and valued.

Together we care for God’s world.

We remove barriers

We provide equitable access to excellent education.

We remove financial barriers. We serve students from across the socio-economic spectrum. We especially welcome those with the least.

We remove barriers to learning. Teachers work to engage diverse learners. We celebrate each child’s gifts and support each child’s challenges to develop understanding.
