The school offers college prep, general and vocational programs. It is a nonprofit school governed by a board of directors.
Praise Tabernacle's mission is "to reach the unchurched of the tri-county area (Cobb, Paulding, and Douglas) by ministering to the total person in order that they may become growing, passionate followers of the Lord Jesus Christ."
