Arma Dei Academy's mission is to glorify God by providing an excellent classical Christian education founded upon a biblical worldview which equips students to live purposefully and intelligently in service to God and others.
The Past Informs Us and the Future Inspires Us at Arma Dei Academy!
2012-2013 Four families set out to pursue excellence in educating future generations through both a high view of academics and a high view of God. Arma Dei Academy's mission began, to glorify God by providing an excellent classical Christian education founded upon a biblical worldview which equips students to live purposefully and intelligently in service to God and others. The academy opened with 9 students ranging from 2nd to 7th grade, 3 full-time teachers, and 2 part-time teachers.
2013-2014 Construction began on a new facility as we celebrated the start of our second academic school year with 25 students.
2014-2015 Seven new staff members and 67 students filled the brand new 16,000 square foot facility.
2015-2016 Arma Dei continued to experience rapid growth as the new school year kicked off with 103 students. The physical campus was further enhanced with the building of a new turf field and playground.
2016-2017 In its 5th academic school year, Arma Dei experienced advancement, improvement, and expansion in every area: 132 students, six new staff members, additional grade sections, and 6.5 acres of land generously donated to the school to serve as Arma Dei Academy's future expansion site.
2017 - 2018 As the school year began, we were bursting at the seams with 165 students. By the grace of God, in January 2018 Arma Dei broke ground on a 17,500 square foot building to support our growing community.
2018-2019 We welcomed 205 students onto our K-8 campus, now equipped with two beautiful buildings and additional outdoor play areas.
2019-2020 Arma Dei Academy continued to experience tremendous growth, including the addition of a Preschool and a Homeschool Collaborative program. To further the mission of Arma Dei Academy, K-8 students participated in the first annual Recitation & Art Showcase, the School of Logic instituted a House system, and our school-wide scripture memorization program was formalized under the name Dwell. Due to the novel Coronavirus, our students continued to receive an excellent classical Christian education through a Distance Learning Program.
2020-2021 We are thrilled to welcome 310 students across the Preschool, K-8, and Homeschool Collaborative programs back to the Arma Dei campuses. In May we broke ground on Phase II of a 24,000 square foot building expansion scheduled to be open in January 2021. Additionally, plans are underway to open a High School (School of Rhetoric) in the Fall of 2021. We are in awe of who God is and what He continues to do at Arma Dei. We truly serve the One who is "able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us" (Ephesians 3:20).
We are thrilled to have found Arma Dei Academy. We have been so impressed with the curriculum and the high standards set for the students. We love the teachers' commitment to the children and truly feel that our son is cared for and encouraged every day. The personal attention from every staff member has been so refreshing. Arma Dei has been such a blessing to our son and our family. Our only regret is not finding this school sooner.

In one semester at ADA we have witnessed such tremendous growth in our daughter. Her love of learning and her walk with the Lord have transformed and we could not be happier with our decision to send her ADA. I would highly recommend ADA to anyone who is looking for a classical education and for teachers and staff that care deeply for their students. Thank you, ADA! We feel so blessed to be a part of your family!

As a father of three talented children, I was dissatisfied with the level of academic rigor and spiritual preparation provided to my children at the local public school. Arma Dei Academy has been just what I have been looking for to prepare my children's minds and hearts. With their minds fed by the great curriculum, the essential skills taught in logic, literature and science, and Biblical truths infused in every subject my children are thriving and extremely happy. Thank you founders and staff of Arma Dei! PS. I love hearing the kids so excited about Latin - a unique distinction at Arma Dei Academy!

What I like most is that we get to learn about God and that we are challenged in every class. This school also helps me develop better speaking skills. Through the speech meet, I have learned to speak more confidently in front of a group. - Arma Dei Academy Fifth Grade Student
I enjoyed the pastor appreciation breakfast you hosted for us. Thank you for all the effort that everyone contributed making it a wonderful time. Seeing the kids in their classrooms was the highlight...relevant teachers and enthusiastic learners! May our Lord Jesus continue blessing your exceptional school. Pastor
Truly they seek Christ in all things, they teach truth unapologetically, and desire that the students be well-versed in all subjects so they can be lifelong learners and educated participants in society. Arma Dei Academy Parent
Our children have learned so much during their time at Arma Dei and they both love learning. The teachers at this school truly care about character development and engaging with the students while teaching a challenging curriculum. The curriculum here is largely taught through discussion and hands on activity as opposed to having the kids fill out a bunch of worksheets which helps the kids gain a greater depth of understanding in all subjects.
