We strive to reach SBJA’s full potential through the highest consistent and sustainable enrollment and high quality staffing.

 

We employ Christ-centered leaders to foster a positive, spiritual environment that inspires students to academic achievement as well as a genuine relationship with God.

 

We offer a diverse curriculum and active after-school program to encourage curiosity, leadership and collaboration.

 

We identify our strengths as a school and our unique contribution to the community, developing robust partnerships with local churches and our neighborhood.

 

We establish a substantial endowment fund to allow families to participate in Christian Education through scholarships. 

 

We revere parental commitment to and involvement in their child’s academic, social and spiritual development, partnering to cultivate students ready to reflect the heart of God and be His hands and feet in service to the world.

 



CURRICULUM

South Bend Junior Academy provides each student with all the standard subjects expected in any school. However, what sets our school apart is that we teach the Bible, not only in one class daily but in everything that we do. All of our subjects are approached based on a biblical worldview. We teach that God created the world in six days and that God has been involved in human history. We select literature that reflects Christian values. Moreover, we incorporate biblical lessons and Christ’s teachings into every course of study.
 
“Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God’s ideal for His children. Godliness—godlikeness—is the goal to be reached. Before the student, there is opened a path of continual progress. He has an object to achieve, a standard to attain that includes everything good, and pure, and noble” (Education, p. 18).
