Head Of School's Welcome

Welcome to Braveheart Christian Academy! 

We have designed a five day per week educational program that focuses on the mastery of arithmetic, phonics, reading, and writing for students in traditional grade levels of PK - 7th.

As students master the foundational building blocks of learning, students soar into more advanced concepts years ahead of traditional grade levels.

Hands on activities are a key component of our learning model, allowing kinesthetic learning to be optimized and propelled.

Students memorize bible scriptures to reinforce biblical principles and precepts.

We look forward to meeting you and your family!

Chrystal Bernard
