School Reviews

We have been thrilled to have our children attend Bradford Academy. We appreciate the loving environment combined with the classroom structure. We have been pleasantly surprised with the Classical Education style and feel like our kids will be well-prepared for not only college, but life. We appreciate that God is a part of every subject and the Bible is a resource and support to every part of the day. You need to visit the school to see for yourself just how different it is from everything else out there.
