I unfortunately went to this school from 2nd -8th grade. This school believes in corporal punishment for literally every mistake a child makes. There's a lot of things that went on at this school that nowadays would land the teachers in jail. Such as duct taping the entire class' mouths shut and leaving

We had to endure cassette recordings of supposed exorcisms that would make an adult fearful. We were only 11 and 12 years old. I'm 40 years old and I still have issues with it. I have 4 children now, 3 that are still in school and I would rather die than send my children there. There's a reason the state only gives it a D rating. Read less

I believe that ALL the teachers, as well as the staff and volunteers care about each and every child enrolled in Baptist Academy. I attended Baptist Academy back in the early to mid 1970's. They had the same caring attitude then as much as today. The education is superb after coming from a public school.
... Read more My child did not have any homework until the second semester while attending a public school. That to me was ridiculous since he was in first grade and just learning how to do everything academically, or at least he should have been. He has attended Baptist Academy for three years and we have had no problems whatsoever with either the staff or the academics. I would recommend BAPTIST ACADEMY to anyone looking for a quality, Christian education with caring administrators and teachers looking for the best in every student there. Read less

Exceptional caring school that my son loves. The teachers go beyond teaching and help students in areas they need it most and go the extra mile with them to help them succeed.

The education students receive at Baptist Academy is exceptional! The teachers are caring and many go above and beyond the call. Our kids are learning and being taught to think! I love the fact that teachers will actually pray with students and spend time getting to know them.

Very good school. My son went there, and the teachers were very caring, and tried hard to work with parents for any problems or concerns. Regarding the parent that wrote about her child being "duct taped", I find this hard to believe, and even if true, that teacher (the Pre-K teachers) are all gone

I am a 2009 graduate of Baptist Academy, and I can proudly say that, after looking back on who I have become, I don't wish I could've gone somewhere else. Every school has its faults, and BA is no exception. But BA is a great school, no matter what anyone says otherwise. Of course, it is taught from

Read more a Christian perspective, and therefore certain rules are enforced such as dresscode and behavior--but these rules are reasonable and are designed to help students behave professionally and respectfully. Each student is treated fairly and appropriately--the teachers don't show favoritism. The academics are great--because of my SAT scores, I was able to get more than 75% of my college tuition paid for--BA's curriculum and teachers had a great part in that. If you are searching for a good place to grow intellectually and spiritually/morally, I would whole-heartedly recommend Baptist Academy. Read less

The teachers at BA are extremely dedicated and caring individuals. Often they go above what is expected to ensure that a child grows spiritually, mentally, and academically. Academic subjects are somewhat limited, as are subjects in the arts. Sports and extracurricular events are highly stressed,
