It is our mission... 

Ashley Road Baptist Academy intends to provide an opportunity for students to receive a comprehensive, Christian education. While strictly adhering to a Biblical-based, Christian-centered curriculum, Ashley Road Baptist Academy practices a standard that encourages our students to realize their full academic, spiritual, and physical potential, within a Christian learning environment. And while preparing each student for a successful academic future, the Academy further provides the spiritual foundation and skills necessary to promote lifelong Christian service. Because of our Christian-based curriculum and campus devotions, the Christian characteristics of each student are reinforced daily. Ultimately, it is our purpose to remain academically effective, spiritually supportive, and to provide a positive learning experience, as we prepare students to pursue successful and secure futures, characterized by responsible living and Christian service.


It is our objective...

From the Handbook:  "The objective of a private "Christ-centered" academy is to teach children how to live and to equip them for success.  The Bible verse Proverbs 22:6 admonishes adults to train up a child in a way he should go.

Our Academy is an extension of the home in training young people.  Our Academy staff works closely with parents to train the whole child.

Attendance at our Academy is a privelege and not a right.  The goal of our Academy is to train youth of every ability in the highest principles of moral character, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.

The guidelines of Ashley Road Baptist Academy are established in the following:  setting a Scriptural purpose, a guiding Biblical principal, and appropriate policies for responsible living.  We desire for our students an intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and to love Him with their whole heart, soul, and mind.  Additionally, we want them to acquire a desire to live for the good of others.

The principles we emphasize and teach at our Academy give discretion.  The four major principles which we elevate before our students are:

  • HONESTY before God and man is primary to Christian growth.  Seeing myself as God sees me and taking away all pretenses before man allows God to work in my life.
  • OBEDIENCE as the familiar song says, is 'doing exactly what the Lord commands.'  Obedience puts students in a place of protection.  Students' lives must be characterized by Holy actions (I Thessalonians 2:10).
  • WISDOM is learning to live by the Word of God.  Our goal at Ashley Road Baptist Academy is not mere outward conformity to a religious code of conduct, but rather spiritual wisdom that comes from above (James 3:17, 18).  We are concerned about the heart attitude that communicates the spirit of our true relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • SERVICE is learning to be a participant, not a spectator.  Students must become servants among men by becoming followers of Jesus Christ.

Our Academy uses the Biblical-based School of Tomorrow (ACE) curriculum, which includes the Scripture memory passages and references to God and Jesus Christ--all designed to help students develop moral character, a sense of accountability, and wisdom in their lives.  Standards of personal conduct, school policies, and curriculum continue to build the students' sense of responsibility and integrity.

We trust that the principles, policies, and guidelines by which our Academy operates will help our students to develop a pattern of Godly thinking and living."
