Our Mission

The vision of Jay County Christian Academy is to raise up multiple generations of Godly young people.

    Who love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.

    Who serve Him both in their local church and in their vocational calling.

    Who worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness

    "In the same way, encourage the young men to live wisely. And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. Teach the truth so that your teaching can't be criticized. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed and have nothing bad to say about us." Titus 2:7-8

The goal of our instruction is twofold:

    To train children in the ways of the Lord so that they will develop Godly character.

    To train children in the essential academic areas so that they can function as an individual in God's calling and within their God-given talents and abilities.
