Life is never a perfect straight-line. It’s more like a roller-coaster with ups and downs. At some point, students and families may struggle and need additional support. We are here to assist - THRIVE is a help desk for life. We try to provide proactive education to prepare students for life’s challenges. When things get too heavy we have tools to help students academically, spiritually, and personally.
Some of the ways we can help…
- Give students individual mentoring and coaching with personal difficulties. (Life Skills)

God works in our weaknesses and fears. He promises to us in 2 Corinthians 12:9; “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Learning to rely on God and allowing him to help through all our struggles in life will foster a life-long relationship with Jesus.
