Bell Shoals Baptist Academy has been an ineradicable blessing to our family. Our four children had the privilege of attending the Academy. The Academy well prepared them spiritually and educationally for life. Two of our children graduated High School with AP Honors in the top 10% of their class and have gone off to college. Our other two are currently in the top 5% of their class. They take AP and Duel enrollment classes and are well prepared for the task. We feel that the education, spiritual and social experience our children received at Bell Shoals molded them into incredible people. We would highly recommend Bell Shoals to anyone seeking to find a superior, all encompassing school for their family. Bell Shoals is not just about education, but about helping families become exceptional people giving back and serving one another.

i felt that this school was very good at preparing us for high school. they required us to put a lot of time and hard work into our grades and in the end it helped me maintain a really good work ethic. although, many events or chapels were aimed more for the younger students. also, the teachers either loved you or hated you, there was no in between. i do applaud Mrs. Crowson for being probably one of the best history teachers i've ever had, if bell shoals ever fires her, they would be a mess in the history department for the middle school
