Jericho Christian Academy

Jericho Christian Academy is organized specifically to offer students "Academic excellence with a Christian emphasis." Our specific objectives are to effectively teach, that each student will take as his personal commitment and belief that Jesus Christ is The Son of God and that His death and resurrection provided forgiveness of sin and new life through faith in Him; to create in each student a firm conviction that the Bible is The Word of God to men, and that it is a practical guide to life and living and to develop within each student a keen understanding of the fundamentals of God's creation, including all of the academic studies, to cause within his thinking an understanding that Jesus Christ is central in these areas; and to instruct him thoroughly in arts and sciences that he might develop to the glory of God, spiritually, socially, mentally and physically, not in his natural energy, but through new life in Christ.
