Philosophy and Mission
Augusta Christian Schools was founded on Christian values in 1958. The school offers a kindergarten, elementary, junior and senior high school, as well as the School of Talent Development for students with special learning needs. Our current enrollment is approximately 500. Over 100 churches from the area are represented in Augusta Christian Schools' student population.
Augusta Christian School's purpose is to provide a sound academic education with a Christian world-view. Our mission is to "prepare students to serve Jesus Christ as Lord, partnering with family and church, instilling high standards spiritually, academically, socially and physically."
Our Vision Statement is "BUILDING KINGDOM LEADERS TO SERVE JESUS CHRIST AS LORD." This vision statement is based on Philippians 2:9-11: "Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him a name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and of those on the earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
Augusta Christian Schools is an independent, non-denominational Christian school located in Martinez, a suburb of the beautiful city of Augusta, Georgia. Our 26 acre campus includes academic, fine arts and athletic facilities. The school is accredited with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and is a member of the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA) for participation in athletics and other interscholastic activities.
We offer an outstanding fine arts program, and students may participate in three levels of band, three levels of choral groups, visual art classes, drama classes, and private piano and voice lessons.
Students in grades 6-12 may participate in the following interscholastic sports: football, softball, cross country, basketball, cheerleading, baseball, track, tennis, volleyball, swimming, wrestling and golf.
Fine Arts and Athletics are introduced and coached from a Christian worldview perspective.
Statement of Beliefs
WE BELIEVE in, and without reservation hold to, the verbal inspiration of the Holy Scriptures as expressed in the Old and New Testaments, and accept whatever they declare to be true as the authority of God Himself speaking therein;
WE BELIEVE that there is One and only One living and true God and in the unity of the Godhead there are three Persons of one substance, power, and eternity;
WE BELIEVE that Adam and Eve were seduced by the temptations of Satan, sinned, and fell; and by this fall all mankind became dead in sin, corrupt in nature; and this corruption is transmitted from generation to generation; and, therefore, man is in need of regeneration and pardoning grace for restoration;
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is God's only begotten Son, the Mediator between God and man, the second Person of the Trinity, Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of the virgin Mary, and thus possessing two whole, perfect, and distinct natures, Godhood and manhood;
WE BELIEVE that Christ died on the cross to make a substitutionary atonement for sinners, was buried, and on the third day He arose from the dead with the same body in which He suffered, with which also He ascended into Heaven; and there sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for His people, and in the Father's own time will personally return to judge men and angels and bring in the Kingdom of Glory;
WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit as the third Person of the Trinity, of the same substance and equal in power and glory with the Father and the Son, to be loved, obeyed, and worshipped; and that He regenerates men by His grace, convicts them of sin, moves them to repentance, persuades and enables them to embrace Christ by faith and unites all believers to Christ;
WE BELIEVE the Gospel of Christ and that there is no other way of salvation than that revealed in it...specifically, that saved individuals are born again into God's family by accepting and receiving Jesus Christ as their personal Savior;
WE BELIEVE that the church is the Body of Christ, and consists only of those who are born again. We believe that Christ makes intercession for His church and will come again for His church.
