The history of an institution can be boring. The history of people never is. The story of Tree of Life Christian Schools is we believe, to be found among the latter histories. “Life” is at the heart of both the school’s name and its reason for being. And that gift comes early. Christ said, Let the little children come to me…for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these. When God first created a place for his children’s happiness and comfort, he said not a word about buildings, tax records, real estate costs, or legal issues. Nor about schools. Such things only take one meaning in the context of living, and especially as they play out in lives.
The thousands of Tree of Life students, their families, staff, and friends have reflected the God of Life. He has poured faith, hope, and love into this school, this time, this people. And so, we believe its story – their story – is worth telling.
