2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.



We believe we've caught a glimpse as to the importance of an excellent Christian education; being surrounded by Godly living and Godly moral principles. The information you are about to obtain will be life-changing if not merely thought-provoking.

Our school scripture, as opposed to a mascot or some destructive character, is Isaiah 54:13, "AND ALL THY CHILDREN SHALL BE TAUGHT OF THE LORD AND GREAT SHALL BE THE PEACE OF THY CHILDREN."

Our standard here at the ROD OF GOD CHRISTIAN ACADEMY is excellence, not only spiritually but academically. We believe the Word of God is a disciplined way of life. Not bondage but freedom and liberty. The issues of life flow primarily from the spirit and not the head; the center of every political, economic, legal, and social issue is the spiritual, moral, and ethical dimension. We must build a solid foundation of God, family, education, and while liberty incorporating Godly principles within the lives of every child. As we do our part, there will be moral fiber and education excellence that will form such resilience in them that will be galvanizing.


Our reason for being is the verse in Proverb 22:6 which reads: "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

The Rod of God Christian Academy is an arm of the Rod of God Family Center and the extension of the Christian home in training young people in a Christian environment for time and eternity. The school staff works closely with parents to train the whole child.

Attendance at the Rod of God Christian Academy is a privilege, not a right. The goal is not a reform, but to train Christian youth of every ability in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.

For these reasons, The Rod of God Christian Academy uses the Alpha Omega Curriculum. This curriculum possesses academic excellence built upon the Word of God. We recognize that our basic textbook is the Bible and our Master Teacher is Jesus Christ.


The Rod of God Christian Academy, admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to the students at the school.

Students are enrolled in grades K through 12. Family life, church involvement, and general behavior are carefully considered.
