We count it a great privilege to serve the Lord here at Westwood Baptist Academy and accept the serious responsibility of being a part of the education of your children. We welcome you to the website and appreciate your interest in WBA and the program of traditional learning that we offer.
WBA is the result of God's leading and the willingness of the people of Westwood Baptist Church to follow His will in providing a quality Christian education in the Poplar Bluff area.
The objective in providing a Christian school is to obey the Scriptural imperatives of Deuteronomy 6:5-7 and Proverbs 22:6,
"...love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children..." Deuteronomy 6:5-7
"Train up a child in THE way he should go..." Proverbs 22:6
Teaching and Training for life has eternal value.
Attendance at this school is a privilege, not a right. The goal of WBA is not to reform, but to train youth of varying abilities in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship. WBA stands without apology for the old-time Gospel and the highest standards of morality and Christian behavior.
We are convinced that a Christian education does not cost; it pays, and pays dividends for a lifetime. We take seriously the responsibility God has placed in our hands, and we look forward to partnering with you in your child's education.
In His Service,
Thomas W. Graham Jr., B.A., M.A., M.R.E.
