The mission of Zion Christian Academy is to instruct students from the light of God’s Word in order to equip them for a lifetime of learning, leadership, service and worship for the glory of God.
Zion exists to bring Glory to God. Glorifying God is the primary purpose of all mankind. The ministry of Zion Christian Academy adheres to Biblical principles, exhibits Christ-like witness, and seeks God’s leading in all matters. The Bible as found in the Old and New Testaments is the inerrant and infallible Word of God. All members of the school community function under this authority and strive to apply the truths of scripture in all relations and activities for the glory of God and the benefit of all.
Zion academically prepares students for life. ZCA is first and foremost a school. Intentional consideration is given to the roles of the school, home, and church to insure that the school gives highest priority to those activities most appropriate for the school’s unique sphere of influence. As an academic institution ZCA seeks to equip, challenge and inspire students to love learning, think critically, and apply knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
Zion educates the whole child. An extensive variety of rigorous, engaging, academic and co-curricular activities are provided to enable students to identify, develop and express the full range of their unique gifts and abilities. High levels of student participation in the various activities and programs enrich the school experience for everyone. ZCA strives to prepare students fully to live out their faith, pursue their passions, and follow God’s plan for their lives.
Zion functions with integrity and humility. Zion employs professional staff members with all degrees, certification and training appropriate for their duties who model a Christ-like posture of servant leader in all relationships. Each board member, administrator, faculty and staff member testifies to a personal, saving relationship with Jesus Christ and commits to faithfully serve at ZCA.
Zion uses all the resources God has provided wisely. Zion follows Biblical principles, demonstrates operational integrity, wisely stewards all available resources, and seeks God’s leading in all matters of the ministry of the school.
