... Read more Academy is one of those private Christian schools that is of top quality. It begins with a Board that will demand the best. It is fostered by a Principal who believes in the best and has the capabilities to accomplish the best. Then it requires parents who believe in Christian education as the best way for their children and the best way to sow into the American way of life that our founders sought to establish.
