The mission of ASA Christian Academy is to provide each child with a sound, Christian education and to partner with the family, church and community to help them to develop into well rounded leaders of tomorrow. ASA provides access to families seeking a challenging curriculum, small class sizes and community commitment.
“Developing our leaders of tomorrow with Christian values and principles today.” ASA Christian Academy’s mission reflects two dimensions that define the purposes of the organization and its intended contributions to improving the education of children who are served through its efforts. The two dimensions are:
Developing – Helping our students realize their abilities to become leaders in the community and beyond with the right combination of leadership and follow-ship.
Christian values and principles – Preparing students to be able to make the right choices based on working with the family, church and community to build on Christian experiences and studies; and never compromising on making the right choice.
Philosophy of Education
We hold that it is important for students to have experiences alone and with other students and adults in a safe environment where individual abilities can be explored. Our philosophy encompasses the belief that parents are vital in the classroom to maintain discipline, observe children, develop continuity between home and school, to provide a source of information, and to boost the child’s confidence by considering him/her important enough to take time to be involved with him/her in special group programs. ASA Christian Academy treasures academic structure, encourages and praises meaningful, individual achievement, and fosters virtue.
Students from ASA Christian Academy will acquire a Christian education that will allow them to develop a Biblical view of the world witnessed through character, knowledge, service, leadership, stewardship, and worship.
ASA Christian Academy is a private S.T.E.M. school nestled in the residential area of Hazelwood, Missouri. Our offerings include small class sizes on a nine acre campus, 2 play grounds, a ball field, a variety of educational techniques, and a group of staff and faculty who stand ready to assist families with all of their educational needs. We value each of our students as individuals with something to offer to our community. Learning from one another and creating a community of Learners, Thinkers, and Doers, our students embrace diversity with love and respect for each individual.
A.S.A. Christian Academy first opened its’ doors on April 2, 1999, in Black Jack, MO, under the name Alphabet Soup Learning Center with just 4 boys. After 6 successful years, we outgrew our Black Jack location and prayed for God to enlarge our territory to be a blessing to more people. On October 7, 2005, He blessed us with a 9+ acre campus that blessed a church, a school district, a rugby sports team and not to mention the devoted staff, parents, and students of ASA Christian Academy.
Today, in our continued growth, we are now host to a Home Health Care Facility, 2 churches, an adult rugby team, a high school rugby team, a kickball team, and a community garden that the students maintain.
