As a Christian school the mission of BJA is to promote Christlikeness in the lives of its students through the direct preaching of the Word of God as well as through classes and extracurricular programs.
What better way to support the mission of BJA than to set aside a time for students to attend chapel. This time provides a break in the academic schedule and a chance to refocus spiritually and to hear God’s Word presented on a level that is age-appropriate and applicable.
Elementary chapels include a rotation of guest speakers and class presentations. Themed presentations include music, Scripture recitations and dramatic arrangements. Guests are welcome to attend as these students present important spiritual lessons to their peers.
Middle school students meet for chapel tice a week, and services are oriented to and targeted for the needs of middle school students. Students contribute to chapel by providing instrumental or vocal special numbers.
High school students attend combined academy/university chapel services once a week. Twice each week high school chapel may include a message and testimonies, a student body program, class meetings, or special Academy assemblies.
High school students have the privilege of participating in Bob Jones University’s annual Bible Conference, a time that is not only a break from regular classes but also a time of great inspiration to students and faculty alike.
Bob Jones Academy actively encourages its student body to attend a Bible-believing church.
Middle and high school students have weekly prayer meetings.
