The opportunity to serve in a Christian school is a privilege. The opportunity to attend a Christian school is a privilege. What an opportunity faculty, staff, families, and students have to be a part of the ministry of Bob Jones Academy. Even a brief overview of accreditation standard six, “School Climate and Organization,” just overflows with the amazing abundance we have here at Bob Jones Academy. While so many other Christian schools struggle to find qualified faculty or offer beyond-the-classroom opportunities, BJA is blessed with a long track record of excellence, an array of incredibly experienced and credentialed faculty, and an abundance of opportunities that provide an incredible variety of exploration and growth experiences for students. From fine arts and sports to technology and speech, the list of offerings is extensive and excellent—such a contrast to the norm. This section of the accreditation documentation reflects over and over God’s abundant grace and provision to BJA over the years. It is overwhelming and humbling to record BJA’s ministry opportunities and to discuss BJA’s relationships with local churches and ministries. It is also amazing to acknowledge the incredible accomplishments of BJA graduates. God has graciously allowed the ministry of BJA to continue through the lives of our graduates. While this accreditation standard, like the others, contains nuts-and-bolts information about organizational structure, communication, development, assessments, and curriculum, one cannot walk away from this record of blessings without thanking the one we ultimately serve for His goodness to us. To God be the glory!
Bob Jones Academy exists to assist like-minded Christian parents in challenging students to love Jesus Christ, to embrace God’s truth, to exercise integrity, to pursue excellence, and to serve others.
