Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)
Cantabile: Every Monday and Friday, students, staff, and parents gather to proclaim God's glory by singing Psalms and hymns in Cantabile. We believe that the entire school day is continuous worship, but these special gatherings bookend the week as a way to remind each other of God's faithfulness and to give Him thanks.
