Last week several members of Messiah Lutheran Church visited our adopted school, Milestone Christian Academy. While there, they delivered gifts from the congregation and spent time visiting with the school staff.
Milestone Christian Academy, a division of Milestone Development Inc., was founded in 2008. It is a Christian based nonprofit organization that began as a small after school program serving only 25 children’s in Huntsville, Alabama. It has now expanded to a new facility, and is licensed to provide service for over 100 children.
Milestone is unique, in that it offers a sliding fee scale based on income, for qualifying parents, who are employed or attend and educational instrtution. With the help from donations and grants, Milestone provides schalarships for tuition. Enrollment consists of full paying clients, single family homes, homeless children, and children under protection service.
Milestone serves children from 6 weeks of age to 12 years. Their program offers more than just “child care”. They provide a rich, nurturing environment for children’s cognitive, social and physical growth in a fun learning enviorment.
Milestone believes that children are a gift and reward from GOD. They are capable, active leaners, constructing their knowladge through exploration, investigation, story, and play.
