Geneva Academy exists to INSTRUCT students utilizing the Classical Christian method, to TEACH all subjects as part of an integrated whole with Scripture at the center, to PROVIDE students with the “tools of learning” in an orderly and engaging atmosphere, and to NURTURE the development of godly character by promoting and assisting God ordained parental discipline and training.
Our teachers partner with Geneva parents in providing a Christ-centered education. Each teacher is a student of the Bible and utilizes and references the Scriptures in daily lessons, applying Biblical principles in classroom management and character training, and encouraging students in their relationship with Jesus Christ nourished by His Word.

FOR OUR SCHOOL
To pursue our goals and vision for our students & graduates, we have chosen a covenant discipleship model of schooling, rather than an evangelistic model. Parents of Geneva Academy families must have at least one active professing Christian. It is our vision to have our classrooms filled with children from godly, Bible-believing homes. Read more...
FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Our school emblem bears the words "Post Tenabrus Lux Christi." Latin for "After the Darkness, Light of Christ." We aim to be a beacon of light in a dark world, as we raise up the next generation of influencers for Christ. Therefore, we aim to be a resource for those who serve area youth and their parents within our community, as well as foster dynamic relationships with community leaders, pastors, and business organizations. We aim to be above reproach in our business dealings and supportive of the local business community who is so gracious in donating their goods and services to support our mission and vision. Our students participate in outreaches that serve our Veterans, minister to our area's elderly, protect the unborn and fill the shelves of our local food pantries. Read more...
“The magnificent mystery and paradoxical beauty of the ‘already and not yet,’” as Dr. Kester might say. The Advent of our Savior into this broken world marks the change for humanity’s destiny. The hope of what’s yet to come is presently in our heart—The Holy Spirit. The war is decided. The end is sealed. And as we wait, as we groan, praying for the end of certain seasons… an end to Covid, an end to political drama, an end to the three weeks leading up to Christmas; let us find present rest and joy in the already. The Eternal Already, who is Christ our King.
The Black Lives Matter organization was started by three Marxist women devoted to the overthrow of white systems of power. It began with the 2013 protests over the acquittal of Officer George Zimmerman of the charge of murdering Trayvon Martin. Black Lives Matter is a popular movement, but is fueled by Critical Race Theory and all of the ideas written about above. This is why, when people say, “Police Lives Matter” or “All Lives Matter,” BLM activists would say those assertions, even if meant well or said by non-whites, just reinforce white hegemony and systemic oppression.
Critical Race Theory. It has rooted itself in colleges, public education, mass media, Hollywood, and politicians of both parties. It is making inroads in the church, and it is affecting your life right now, even if you are not aware of it. We want secondary students to learn about it and wrestle with its claims and observations. We want students to address the arguments with the Scriptures, and grow in their faith thereby.
Critical Theory is shaping public discourse and has taken over the universities and public education systems. It guides Hollywood entertainment and mass media. It is the system of thought behind Black Lives Matter and the current teaching of U.S. history to American children. This is exactly the kind of discussion we prepare your children to have in their high school years. These kinds of topics intertwine history, economics, the Scriptures, and politics. This is affecting our nation right now! Being informed is wise, for we may thereby be better parents and witnesses of the gospel.
The Protestant Reformation sought not innovation, but restoration. Every year at Geneva we observe the anniversary of Martin Luther’s public questioning of certain church practices. Luther’s 95 Theses, posted on the cathedral door October 31st, 1517, were reprinted rapidly with the new, moveable-type printing presses, and the writings of the somewhat obscure monk enflamed Europe. Reformation pastors emphasized what’s known as the five Solas: sola gratia (grace alone), sola fide (faith alone), solus Christus (Christ alone), soli Deo Gloria (glory of God alone), and sola scriptura (scripture alone). Salvation is not something we must or even can earn, it is by grace alone, through faith alone. Christ’s work alone is sufficient to meet our spiritual needs, and we do not share in His glory. We must rely on the Scriptures alone to be our guide, for men err.
