Falls Baptist Academy
Academic excellence. Intentional Development. Spirit-filled Service.
Falls Baptist Academy, a ministry of Falls Baptist Church, was founded in 1984. From its inception and continuing through today, Falls Baptist Academy strives to produce Spirit-filled leaders who serve Christ by meeting the genuine needs of others with the knowledge and skills they gain and who mature by experiencing the potential of their calling and education.
In an age dominated by humanistic philosophies, Falls Baptist Academy has determined to be based on Christ and His Word. Since the philosophy of a school will determine its curriculum and procedures, Falls Baptist Academy strives to apply a genuinely biblical philosophy in every class and activity in order to help each student grow in his love for the Lord and in his desire to serve God wholeheartedly.
“…shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD,
and his strength,
and his wonderful works that he hath done.”
– Psalm 78:4 –
Our Purpose & Philosophy
Scripture teaches repeatedly that the aim of the Christian life, and thus the ultimate goal of Christian education, is to develop Christlikeness in the believer in thought, word, and deed (Romans 12:2; Colossians 3:10; 2 Peter. 1:4). Therefore, the process of Christian education seeks to help the student to learn of God (Matthew 11:29) and to develop godly wisdom (Proverbs 4:5, 7) that manifests itself in a changed life (James 3:13). True Christian education fosters in the student a genuine desire to apply and obey the truths of Scripture in order that God would receive the glory (Matt. 5:16; 1 Corinthians 10:31). Falls Baptist Academy exists to assist parents in the fulfillment of their sacred responsibilities to provide for their children an academically sound, Christ-centered education based on the principles of the Word of God.
Falls Baptist Academy is blessed to have a dedicated and caring staff who demonstrate a commitment to the purpose of this Academy and who show genuine concern for each student. Every teacher approaches students with a discipleship perspective, recognizing that knowledge, wisdom, and understanding begin with the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7, 9:10). In each class, teachers endeavor to present all subject content through a proper respect for God as the heavenly Father, acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior, submission to the Holy Spirit as Teacher and Enabler, and the student as the child and servant of his Lord. Teachers understand that unless they reach the student’s heart, no real learning can take place and no eternal value will follow their work. Subjects are approached through intentional teaching emphasizing excellence through a process of grammar (vocabulary and essential concepts), logic (reasoning and skill processes), and rhetoric (beautiful presentation and evaluation). Special regard is given to reading, math, and reasoning skills.
The students of Falls Baptist Academy understand the importance of glorifying God in all that they do, and they pledge to daily:
