Nature & Purpose

Tri-State Baptist Academy is an educational institution created as a ministry of Tri-State Baptist Church. Our admissions policies are free from discrimination regarding race and color. We insist that every student be given equal opportunity in every aspect of our academy ministry.

Our teachings and philosophies are founded on Biblical truths as interpreted by Tri-State Baptist Church, an independent, Bible-believing local church, which is the “pillar and ground of the truth” (I Timothy 3:15).

The main emphasis of Tri-State Baptist Academy is upon the spiritual and educational growth of its students. In seeking to meet both the spiritual and educational needs of the student, the aim of Tri-State Baptist Academy is to give
the student an understanding of the Christ-centered life. To accomplish this, we believe that all subjects should be taught in the light of the Scriptures in keeping with the verse, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (Proverbs 1:7).

Tri-State Baptist Academy is dedicated to acquainting each student with the person of Jesus Christ and helping them to know that God has a plan and a purpose for his/her life. After reaching the students for Christ, our goal is to send them out as well-trained Christian leaders of tomorrow, serving in whatever area of life the Lord has called them.

In training the student intellectually, Tri-State has a strong academic program and a caring, dedicated faculty. Our curriculum consists of A Beka Book textbooks and teaching videos. The present curriculum is also planned to fulfill the State of Connecticut requirements for graduation.

Statement of Christian Lifestyle

Tri-State Baptist Academy is a uniquely religious educational institution that seeks to provide a quality education in a distinctly Christian environment. One of the goals of Tri-State Baptist Academy is to work with parents and guardians to train Christian young men and women to be salt and light in their communities (Matthew 5:13).
