Inspiring the next generation for Christ

Academy

The Academy emphasizes strong academic standards in a Christ-centered environment.  Our mission is to glorify God in all that we do.  This is especially important in the critical middle school years.  Students have the opportunity to learn about God, clarify and strengthen their faith, and worship on a regular basis.  Weekly chapel services called IMPACT, Bible classes, and Biblical integration throughout the academic day provide the basis for each student’s spiritual growth. The instructional day for the Academy includes classes in mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies.  Sixth grade students study earth science; 7th grade, life science; and 8th grade, physical science.  In mathematics students progress from general mathematics to pre-algebra, Algebra I, and Geometry, depending on background and mathematical aptitude.  Students who study Algebra I or Geometry in the middle grades earn one unit of high school credit.  Students in the 8th grade study Spanish I, which carries one unit of high school credit.  Students also have the opportunity to study band, chorus, class piano, drama, art, physical education, team sports, fitness training, study skills, communications, and technology as enrichments.

The faculty and staff of the Academy are all highly qualified professionals and love the Lord deeply.  They work together to provide the type of environment that is critical for the success of our students.  We believe that a well-rounded education incorporates roles for all stakeholders.  The number one role established for students, parents, and teachers is to study the scripture and listen to God’s direction and all will be good stewards of God’s gifts of knowledge; equipping the children that we are responsible for to impact the world for Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:12-13).
