  • “We believe Messiah is the best kept secret in the community. As a Pediatrician for over 24 years in the valley, I can certify that the children that attend Messiah are receiving an exceptional education. Messiah is well ahead of the other schools in District 51 when it comes to academics. When prompted by other parents, we always encourage families to consider Messiah. As parents, we are extremely impressed with both the Academic teaching and the Christian education given at Messiah. We know that both of our daughters have received the best foundation in education possible by attending Messiah.
    In Christ,
    Dr. and Mrs. Aurelio Etcheverry”
