Welcome to Zion Christian Academy!



Dear Prospective Family,

            Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  

            At Zion Christian Academy, you will find a safe, loving and caring Christian environment for your child.  We pride ourselves in offering a very strong, family-based environment that enables a student to thrive with minimal distractions.  The smaller class sizes allow each student to receive the best possible instruction.

            Academically, we offer a Christ-centered, challenging program that maintains a standing that is well above the national average -- as measured by the Stanford Achievement Testing that is completed each year.  Our college-preparatory structure has been successful in allowing our graduates to be admitted to and successful at some of the finest universities throughout the nation.  Our recent graduates have been accepted and succeeded at West Point, Purdue University, Penn State University, Grove City College, Auburn University, Tennessee Tech, M.T.S.U., Trevecca Nazarene University, Lambuth University, Belmont University, Asbury College, Berry College, Ole Miss, Samford University, Union University, UT Martin, Vanderbilt University, UT Chattanooga, UT Knoxville and many others.

            In order to maintain these high standards, the Science Department at the secondary campus has a collegiate-quality science laboratory with an attached lecture room.  Numerous Advanced Placement  classes are also offered to qualified students.  Our elementary curriculum includes the Accelerated Reading Program and the Foundations and Frameworks program.  The lower campus provides an excellent environment for learning with plenty of opportunities for fun and recreation.

            Our school has steadily grown throughout the years. The addition of the elementary campus wing, full gymnasium facility, weight training room, locker rooms, and computer lab have enabled us to continue to move forward.  Our varsity athletic programs compete successfully as members of T.S.S.A.A., Division II, Class A.

            We are praying that God will continue to bring families to Zion who are active members of area evangelical churches and are committed to the philosophical foundations of Christian education.  I invite you to take the opportunity to come and tour our campuses and see our excellent faculty at work. We are now enrolling for the 2017-18 school year and encourage you to set up an appointment to visit -- we'd welcome the chance to show you around!  

            May God grant you His wisdom as you make this major decision concerning your child’s educational future.


                                                                                    In His Service,

                                                                                    Don Wahlman
