The READY Academy Christian School, (Reaching Educationally Aspiring Dynamic Youth), is dedicated to preparing Christ-like children and youth, according to their ability, who will be spiritually, morally, academically, physically and socially ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.
This is a school where “failure is not an option”, “mediocrity is unacceptable” and “excellence is our standard.”
In addition to acquiring a solid foundation in the Bible, being challenged to achieve excellence in academics, and being nurtured in a loving and caring environment, these students will be intentionally exposed at an early age to the “exciting” world of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts (STEMA). “… Reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 3:13b-14 NKJV
Reaching Educationally Aspiring Dynamic Youth (READY) is the mission of the First Baptist Church. READY Academy Christian School is committed to providing a Christian foundation and quality education for children. In partnership with families and communities, the READY Academy will emphasize specialization in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts (STEMA) to meet the individual, academic needs of each child. The First Baptist Church READY Academy Christian School’s Board of Education, administration, faculty and staff believe God has a purpose for each child and that all children can learn.
