Elmwood is an excellent school and church. A place where love is sown, education is the number one priority, and God's free gift of salvation is presented. Where staff shows love and support of the students and parents support the school. Where they are more than an academy, they are a family. We love Elmwood and their love for the LORD Jesus Christ.

My children have gone to Elmwood Baptist Academy for years. It is a wonderful school. The teachers all care about the students. The principal himself has even tutored my children. They will even stay late or come in and help a child on days off to help them succeed. I love the teachers, principal and Pastor. Great Godly school. I love this school and can not see having my children any where else.

This may only be my son's first year at Elmwood Baptist Academy, but I can say with excitement that I very much look forward to where his educational career will take him. Whether that's in the simple events like his first field trip coming up or going to the Regional Competitions in the years to follow and watching him excel in greatness for his school. I have great anticipation for his time at Elmwood Baptist Academy and I greatly recommend this school to other parents because it has the morals, the people, the education and the spiritual walk that all parents should want for their children.
