That describes Kristy Adjei and Julie Dockery’s starting point. Ideas, vision, and dreams abounded, but that is not enough to get something off the ground.

The inaugural year continued to be a story of walking by faith and desperately looking to God for guidance and provision. To borrow the words of John Newton, "through dangers, toils, and snares, the school has already come; it is grace that brought us safe thus far, and our hope is that grace will lead us home."
