Christian Education Matters!

The mission of Bell Shoals Baptist Academy is to provide a Christ-centered education.  We strive to train students to excel in academics, fine arts and athletics while fostering a biblical worldview throughout all aspects of our program. We believe the academy is an extension of the home, and we desire to partner with our families in the education of their child.  God has a plan for each child, and we are honored to be a part of His kingdom work. There are many private Christian schools to choose from. To get a better perspective on how Bell Shoals Baptist Academy distinguishes itself from the rest, read the testimonials below from some of our current/former parents.

What people are saying about BSBA...

  • My name is Jacob and I am a senior at Durant High School. I graduated from Bell Shoals Baptist Academy. I have been involved in the Future Business Leaders of America club in high school for the past four years, and have placed first in my district competition twice and third in the state of Florida in the category of Business Communications. This competition consists of an objective test to assess knowledge of grammar and mechanics as well as the media of communications in the business field, both verbal and non-verbal. I want to attest to the fact that attending Bell Shoals Baptist Academy was an integral part of my understanding of the fundamentals and gave me the edge to qualify for the national competition this summer in Anaheim, California!
  • My grandchildren attended Bell Shoals and are now wonderful Godly teenagers. The oldest who just graduated from high school with high honors will tell you that being at Bell Shoals was a great good influence in her life. -- from a blessed and grateful grandparent
  • I have two children who attended BSBA and I couldn't imagine them going anywhere else. The atmosphere is welcoming and you know that your child is loved by every teacher/staff member they come in contact with. My children have been in BSBA since K3 and the things they learn at such an early age from their teachers warms my heart. Not only are they getting a wonderful education but they are getting an amazing lesson in our LORD!! My children will tell you that Christmas and Easter are not about Santa and the Easter Bunny, it's all about JESUS. (But they still enjoy those guys too.)  One of them had a Seder, it was amazing that my 3 year old and myself took home so much more than just an Easter party.  WOW! Amazing teachers, amazing curriculum.  Wish they went all the way thru 12th grade.  We love, love, love this school.
  • We are a military family that had to relocate right in the middle of our kids' school year.  This is very tough as you can imagine. ALL the staff and kids at BSBA made our two boys feel so welcome--the transition was amazingly smooth.  They felt genuinely cared for and loved.  Then in the middle of the school year, my oldest son began having some chronic health problems which made him unable to be in the classroom.  The principals arranged for a tutor to come to our house to help our son.  Wow! The staff at BSBA TRULY know what compassion means!  They lifted a huge burden in a stressful situation for our family and we are so thankful for this school!
  • Sending my daughter to Bell Shoals for middle school was the best decision we ever made.  My sons had gone to public middle schools where the atmosphere is often negative and came home every day with bad attitudes.  At BSBA the teachers are loving and pray for each child, the Principals are attentive and deeply care about parent input. The students are great and the learning environment is positive and very hands on.
