DISCOVER EXCELLENCE

We offer high-quality academic programs with a Biblical worldview.

Individualized Instruction in a Safe, Caring Atmosphere

The multi-faceted curriculum offered at South Baldwin Christian Academy (SBCA) is designed to help students in every area of life – spiritually, academically, physically, socially and emotionally.

Our small class sizes and individualized approach helps each student reach his/her God-given potential. Assignments are tailored to meet each student’s individual learning needs giving students the opportunity to remediate skills that are deficient or work ahead in their areas of strength.

Students are provided with a wide variety of curriculum experiences, hands-on opportunities, and instruction by certified teachers.

We are committed to high academic standards and this commitment begins with quality teachers. Our Christian teachers are highly qualified and experienced, with many holding advanced degrees in their respective fields.
