  • Agree with the AFA Statement of Faith as demonstrated by life, word and deed
  • Possess passion for learning, the gift of teaching and have a teachable heart
  • Partner with parents in the education of their children
  • Set an example of servant leadership, using Biblical principles to resolve disputes, speak to edify and encourage, and work as members of an academic team
