School Notes

  • The purpose of Macon Road Baptist School (MRBS) is to teach students an understanding of God`s great love for them and that the only reasonable response to this sacrificial love should be a willing submission of their lives to Jesus Christ. We also want to teach them that their identity in Jesus Christ overshadows all other earthly things in which they may seek their identity and that true happiness only comes by learning and following how God has designed every part of life to function.

School Reviews

As a grandparent I have seen what this school offers and it is incredible. My granddaughter has grown up there and academically they are excellent and the people that work there care so much about the students. Both academically and spiritually they help a child grow and become the very best they can be. May God continue to bless all those at Macon Road Baptist Academy. D. Fultyn
