Established in 1979, Mustard Seed School is a progressive, arts-infused Christian school serving pre-K through 8th grade students. The school inspires minds, cultivates hearts and removes barriers. It teaches each child to be an expert learner and act as a protagonist in their education.
When parents walk into the school for the first time, they comment on the peaceful, joyful environment, says Abby Hall Choi, the Head of School. “They see students who are deeply engaged in learning with teachers who know and care for them. They immediately feel a strong sense of community. It’s a place where students can celebrate their successes and learn from their failures.”
The program at Mustard Seed School addresses the whole child: mind, body and spirit. “We have an integrated curriculum that combines academics with arts, faith and service,” says Hall Choi. “We prepare students to be change makers–to make a difference in the world.”
In the fall, the school plans to offer in-person learning five days a week for all students. During the pandemic, the school was able to successfully remain open for in-person learning in a hybrid model.
Mustard Seed is unique in that it focuses on hands-on learning and infusing the curriculum with music and art, opportunities for service and daily worship. The school has a sliding scale tuition model that enables them to serve students from across the socioeconomic spectrum.
“At Mustard Seed School, students are known and encouraged,” says Hall Choi. “They create meaning and seek purpose, all within a loving and warm academic community committed to excellence.”
