Benton Academy, through its curricula and school activities, is dedicated to the preparation of all students to a standard of excellence and Christ-like values.
We believe the school exists primarily for the students and that learning is an individual and continuing process.
We believe that the aim of private education is to provide for each child, regardless of ability or environment, the opportunity to develop to his/her maximum potential in mental maturity, moral values, physical fitness, emotional stability, social development, civic responsibility, and spiritual awareness.
