Programs & Opportunities


MUTUAL is always looking to be relevant in today’s culture by offering classes to meet the needs of girls 1st – 5th grade. The importance of these opportunities can be seen as each girl LEARNS something new, DISCOVERS her talents and builds her self- confidence. EXPERIENCING these things with the love of Christ as the foundation reveals her connection to community and significance of service to others.

MUTUAL offers an After School Program from mid-August through May. Space is limited. First come, first served. Fees and Enrollment info under Enrollment/Fees tab under Program. A full day Summer Program is offered in June and July.
