Mission & Philosophy
Sojourn Academy exists to train students to “seek wisdom and pursue godliness” (Romans 16:19), making it our goal to develop students who know the truth, are passionate about the truth, and can communicate and live out the truth in a winsome way.
Sojourn Baptist Church desires to “Equip the Saints for Service, and Edify the Body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12). Our church understands that the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) extends to all ages, and it is this desire to equip students and partner with their parents in training up their children (Prov. 22:6) that drives this ministry. We do not exist to replace parents, but to aid them in the task that the Lord has given them in teaching their children (Deut. 6:4-9). The mandate for Christian education comes from God's command that children are to be taught to love God and to give Him preeminence in their lives, and from biblical teaching that parents are responsible for the total education of their children.
Christian education is a Bible-based, Christ-centered process leading the student to Christ and equipping him/her with knowledge, skills, and attitudes for effective Christian service. Being a Christian school, all of our subjects are taught from a thoroughly biblical worldview. We endeavor to produce students who know what they believe and why, and are able to defend their faith in a world that is increasingly antagonistic toward Christianity.
The beginning of wisdom is found in “the fear of the Lord” (Proverbs 9:10); therefore, all intellectual pursuits ought to be completed out of a desire to glorify God. Students are taught that all knowledge and wisdom come from God, and that all truth is God's truth, including history, geography, science, language and the arts; and that Jesus Christ is to be central in all learning and living. Our school partners with parents to provide quality Christian education which will assist in the child’s academic, social, physical, and spiritual development.
