We are founded on the principle of God’s teachings through the story of Micah. Micah’s Mission is an Independent Entity in the form of a Non-profit Organization. Our goal is for every student to be fully funded through grants and donations. All students are working towards a high school diploma or certificate and ready for college or the workforce.
