Abington Christian Academy

  • 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.
