Why Attend a Private Christian Academy?

In addition to receiving more individualized attention, there is much that your child stands to gain from attending our private Christian academy. The most important aspect is that God's word is taught and incorporated into every subject. Students are given a thorough understanding of the Bible, its teachings, and how to apply them to the world both before and after graduation.

Our Christian education is offered at every grade level, from preschool all of the way up to the senior year of high school. Your children never have to worry about transferring and re-acclimating to another school, and they will receive the same Biblical worldview education throughout their academic career.

An Independent Private School with Plenty of Choices

Your child's education doesn't only happen in the classroom, so it’s important for them to have access to additional learning opportunities. We provide our students with a chance to be involved in a variety of extracurricular and afterschool activities, such as National Honor Societies, Dual Enrollment, Drama Productions, as well as Intramural and FHSAA-sanctioned sports programs. We also offer special interest activities, such as piano lessons, yearbook, and chess club.

Because we're an independent private school, we aren't tied to any particular church, other than being a tenant of North Rome Baptist. Our independence allows us to open our doors to all students, even those from families who do not profess to be Christians. In this way, we serve as many as we can while still keeping class sizes small enough for everyone to succeed.
