Ridgewood Baptist Academy

  • Ridgewood Baptist Academy is dedicated to training young people to be Christ-like in character and action and to reach their potential spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically in an atmosphere of excellence.
  • We want the young people attending Ridgewood Baptist Academy to take their academics seriously and be willing to improve themselves in a variety of fields in order to be well-rounded individuals for the glory of God.
  • The Bible, though not the only textbook, is taught and its principles are applied in all aspects of learning.
  • We expect our students to possess self-discipline in all areas of life, to respect the authority that God has placed in their lives, to love our great country, and to develop sound values that can be used for a lifetime.
  • We want our students not only to learn how to make a living, but more importantly, how to truly live.
  • We wish for each student to acquire a desire for a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and develop habits of daily Bible reading and prayer that will benefit them for a lifetime.
