Since opening its doors on August 2, 2010, the Academy has not only brought a fresh outlook on education but also has brought the light of Christ to all that attend and are involved with the school. Dr. Sargent has impacted hundreds of children and families with her amazing heart for her ministry. Children from 8 weeks-6 years old are being influenced for Christ. The years of dedication and personal sacrifices Dr. Sargent has put forth are priceless. Her 20-plus years of experience in the education system have brought her knowledge and understanding on how to teach children of all ages in the most effective manner. She works tirelessly 12, sometimes 14 hours a day, to ensure that the children have the best curriculum, teachers and activities for each age group. The community will benefit from the school for years to come, as it grew 800 percent in the first year of business. With more than 70 children enrolled, the waiting list grows on a weekly basis.
