Established in the early 1970s, Bessemer Academy has long been committed to student excellence and to following God.  Focusing on students with average and above-average intelligence and abilities, this SACS accredited, Christian-based, nondenominational Academy has succeeded in graduating students who have gone on to stellar college careers and preparing for outstanding professions afterward. At Bessemer Academy, we encourage growth academically, spiritually, athletically, and socially.  As students enrolled in a private Christian school, grades K-3 through senior year start their days by participating in morning devotions and regularly scheduled chapel services. Our small class sizes contribute to the excellent results we achieve at Bessemer Academy.  The small student-to-teacher ratios mean more one-on-one attention and a greater understanding of material.  Students get the chance to work with others in the community through service projects within the school.

Our school creed is The Rebel Way. These are principles each student strives to uphold.

Respect- I will show respect in all things. I am personally responsible for all I say and do. I will act with integrity- no bullying, put downs or disrespect.

Excellence in the classroom- I will make academics my priority. I will maintain excellence and honesty in all my academic work.

Building positive relationships- I will make my personal connection to faith, family and friends priority in my life. I will present a positive image of myself and BA at all times.

Effort- I will be determined- Quitting is not an option for me. My personal commitment to excellence and effort is everlasting.



“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
