Education that Ignites the Heart and Mind
Few decisions are as important as where to educate your child.
At Abington Christian Academy, we know that a rich, rigorous Christian education provides an excellent preparation for life.
Our mission is to equip students with knowledge, skills, and wisdom to live fully engaged lives in God's world.

Active Education
Our approach to instruction is both traditional and dynamic.
We incorporate time-tested classical materials and methods while exploring "best practices"--creating a rich learning environment.
Students participate actively in their studies, using educational chants, songs, hands-on projects, history culture days, and games to learn important facts and concepts.

Individualized Instruction/Personal Attention
Our small class sizes enable us to provide individualized instruction and personal attention.
Each student is challenged to his/her fullest academic and spiritual potential by highly credentialed teachers who have been carefully chosen for their Christian commitment, academic qualifications, and classroom experience.

Biblical World and Life View
Abington Christian Academy embraces a distinctively Christian perspective on life.
We have the joy of leading students to wonder at the mind of God as it is revealed in all subjects.
And we strive to point students to Jesus Christ, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Come See Us!
The best way to tell whether a school is right for your child is to spend a morning or an afternoon observing classes and asking questions.
Call 570.586.5270 to make your appointment and discover education that ignites the heart and mind.
