Whether you are part of our preschool, elementary, middle, or high school, each level of the school is designed to prepare students for a continuous spiritual, academic and social challenge. Ultimately we seek to prepare students for continued success during college and in life. This is accomplished while maintaining Christ-centered, Biblically-based programs grounded in the centrality of the gospel.
Of course academics in the Christian setting is not new nor is it a departure from perceived standards of education.
Paul Kienel writes in his History of Christian School Education that "there are very few professions that date back 1,900 years to the first-century Christians. The early church fathers established Christian schools as a strategy to advance the church throughout the cities and towns of the Roman Empire. From that noble beginning, Christians went on to perpetuate basic literacy, often under unbelievable hardships, so that generations of young essay service scholars could have firsthand knowledge of the Bible. Thousands of Christian school educators have literally given their lives so that we, who have been handed their torch, can offer Christian schools that prepare the young for the business of life and the purpose of eternity."
Thankfully the modern era has provided educators the opportunity to teach without fear of death. Because the ministry of preparing students for life and eternity continues, Whitefield Academy, a ministry of Highview Baptist Church, seeks to support Christian parents and the ministry of the church, not replace it. In fact, there is a strong bond between the school, parents and the church in the preparation of students for a life of the ministry of Jesus Christ.
