    Baltimore Junior Academy has educated about 3 generations of my family. Personally BJA helped build a solid spiritual and academic foundation on which I was able to grow. I have so many wonderful memories of my time there. And many of the relationships that were developed at BJA have maintained through the years. Christian education not only feeds the academic need; but it feeds the emotional mental and spiritual needs of a person. A Christian education develops well rounded God fearing people that go forth in the world to make significant impacts on the lives of others.

    I have two children that have graduated from Baltimore Junior Academy (BJA) and they both are doing exceedingly well in their studies at the schools that they now attend. BJA has prepared them to go out into the world and make a difference. This is a school that take pride in their children. I never seen a school where the love for the children flows from the principle to the janitor. This loving family oriented school has instilled in my children the moral values of being a Christian and representing Christ wherever they go. My kids love the school the principle and the staff so much that they can't stop going to visit each chance they get! Now that's a GREAT SCHOOL when your kids want to go back to visit long after they have graduated! KUDOS to BJA!

    It's the best school and it provides the best Christian education ever. I will never forget all the wonderful experiences I had there and all of my special life long friends. I attended with my cousins and all of my children attended from pre-kindergarten to the eight grade.

    BJA has a great staff of teachers that really care about the overall development of the students. They are truly devoted to teaching christian values. There is a very great support network beyond the school staff. There is a commitment to excellence that is extended to all students. A great foundation for success is an important cornerstone. Jesus Christ is that cornerstone and His love is taught at BJA.

    I continue to be grateful that my children received a strong Christian education that provided an invaluable foundation for them in their personal spiritual and professional lives.

    Baltimore Junior Academy has a Christ-centered environment. I appreciate the fact that the children are able to have worship in the morning and are able to say 'God' in school unlike public schools where none of this is allowed.

    My child is receiving a great education in a warm family like Christian environment. The staff is helpful and courteous & the children all help and support each other.

    Baltimore Junior Academy gave me a solid foundation for my education. The most important aspect of my education was the opportunity to learn about God on a daily basis. I established friendships and relationships with students and educators who had a genuine passion for working with children and teaching them about God's love and life lessons. I am blessed to have attended a school of this caliber. Everything that I learned as a student at Baltimore Junior Academy has helped me in some area of my life.

    I am an alumnus of BJA and I sent both of my children there. I love BJA because it prepares children for success in this world and the world to come. To be able to place your children in an environment where education is taught by caring conscientious and dedicated teachers is a bonus. The staff is concerned for the well being of every student and it shows a positive impact in the lives of the students when they leave. They are prepared daily for success in life and what a blessing to know that in this school they are taught to live for Jesus.

    I can trust the values of children that are educated at BJA. They seem to excel not only in moral respect of life and loyalty to God but they excel in social decency of character that makes society strong. We need more of these great schools to be strengthened by diligent parents sending their precious children to populate their seats of honor.

    The faculty and staff at Baltimore Junior Acadamy invest so much into the students. The lessons taught there are just academic but life lessons with eternal consquences. The atmosphere is one of family and belonging. Relationships there are forged for life.

    All of my children have attended I am an alumni myself and my mother is an alumni and my grandmother taught at BJA and I'm proud of the school because it is affiliated with my religion which is small compared to other religious faiths.

    it prepares young people to excell academically socially and spiritually to be active and efficient constructors of our future communities.

    I loved the fact that it's a small school where you have the opportunity to receive one-on-one relationships with the teacher. Also you have the chance to gain friends for life.

    It was the very first school which I attended and it is a Christian school. I firmly believe that all children in America should be taught the importance of having God in their lives and to have a religious foundation. Our country was founded because people wanted to worship God freely.

    Besides creating lifelong friendships with my classmates I learned basic life skills and Bible principles that have proven to be beneficial. Four generations of my family have attended BJA and hopefully it won't stop there.

    I like the small size of the school. It's easier to get to know teachers and other parents. I also like the Christ centered education. The fact that they incorporate worship into their day is a huge plus for me.
