Who We Are

At Christian Way Academy, we are a Faith-Based private school that believes Jesus Christ is Lord and the Head of The Church. We would like our children to know that “All things are possible to those that believe; and that without faith, it is impossible to please God.” The mastery of academic skills, Florida Standards, and readiness for 21st-century work, life, citizenship, and authentic real-world relevance will be the focus at Christian Way Academy.

Core Values

We foster a love of learning by celebrating individual talents and skills through engagement with highly qualified educators that stimulate ones thinking, engages one in authentic tasks, and demands demonstration of mastery.

We instill and expect integrity, honesty, moral courage, personal accountability, respect, and compassion for others while growing in the knowledge and understanding of God’s Word.

Respecting the diversity of others and valuing the relationships uniting us as members of the body of Christ who are jointly fit together, inspiring individual responsibility, and a commitment to serve.

Our Vision

Develop leaders of faith who will utilize sound biblical principles and operate with Christ-like integrity in the marketplace (area of influence).
(Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Mission Statement

“Equipping the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs through Experiential Learning.”
