Special Online study for during the COVID-19 crisis

The gravitational pull of life presses on us and shrinks us down, yet the hope of the gospel is that we can lift our gaze and know that there is a God, the Maker of heaven and earth who is going to come on our behalf and rescue us. A God, who even when the world is closing in around us, is at work making everything possible in our lives. 

He is our help. Our miracle. Our praise.  Our hope. 

As we ascend daily into God's presence, we remember His greatness, live in confidence, rest in His grace, respond in worship and pour His love into the people around us so that many will put their trust in the One who rescues and restores.

Impact Christian Academy

AT IMPACT Christian Academy, we believe that consistency is key in a child’s upbringing. By integrating Christ in the home, the church, and the school, we can establish a foundation capable of fulfilling God’s purpose in each child’s life. We want to be a part of fostering an atmosphere where children can see and experience the authenticity of God. With a firm foundation, the children will possess the ability to impact those around them.

OUR ROLE as educators is to partner with parents to help train their children to think biblically, grow in knowledge and wisdom, and develop into young men and women who will impact their world with the gospel. Each teacher at Impact Christian Academy holds the conviction that Christian education is paramount, therefore we strive to provide a facility that exemplifies the character and virtue of Christ and excel as educators. Jesus Christ is and will always be the foundation and the center of how we teach. We are passionate about equipping each child with the tools necessary in following the unique path God has for them.
