Hartfield Academy is a covenant, Christian school that exists to serve K3-12th grade students in the Jackson-metro area. Since opening in 2012, Hartfield as continued to grow the school’s academic, fine arts, and athletic programs. But more importantly, we have focused on the discipleship and spiritual growth of our students and encouraged them to serve others in our own community and across the globe.
What is a covenant, Christian school?
Hartfield is a covenant school, a community of Christian believers who are engaged not only in the important endeavor of education, but in discipleship and spiritual growth of our students. All teachers, administrators, trustees, and at least one parent/guardian of an applicant must affirm his or her Christian commitment and faith. This requirement is in obedience to our call to provide Christian families an educational experience that challenges students to know the Lord Jesus Christ and to develop a vision and practice of excellence, character, leadership and service. Teaching a young person Godly discretion, wisdom and discernment is a challenging task, which we believe occurs more abundantly when home, church, and school are in complete accord. In short, Hartfield is a school for Christian families.
Hartfield Academy is a Christ-centered, college preparatory school which exists to help families prepare their students academically, emotionally and spiritually to pursue the next stages of their lives with a passion for learning, for putting others ahead of self, and for the living and active Jesus Christ.
To be a school that prepares students to impact their world by helping them discover and embrace their identity in Christ as they align their God-given purpose and passion with an intellectual preparedness that is unparalleled.
Truth: A Christ-centered education invites its students to consider Him who is all Truth, as Creator, Savior, and Lord over all of the domains of life. An educational climate and culture where truth is championed enables students to think critically in the classroom and in life. Scriptures: John 8:31, 14:6, 17:7, and Daniel 1:8
Excellence: The Hartfield student in pursuit of excellence will know the standards and principles of “what is good” from a Biblical perspective. He or she will be taught that it is by His grace that we acquire excellence through the exercising of the talents and resources He has given us, so that we may glorify Him in all things. Scriptures: Titus 3:8, Psalm 8:1, I Peter 2:9, I Peter 4:11, I Corinthians 10:31, and Colossians 3:17
Service: The Hartfield student will be taught that service to others is the key to greatness. Scriptures: Ephesians 6:7, John 12:26, Galatians 5:13, Philippians 2:1-3, and Daniel 3:17, 1:40, 6:20.
Leadership: Leadership starts with learning how to lead oneself in wise character choices. Furthermore, part of the Hartfield experience is equipping our students with the principles, precepts and practices of leadership, so that a Hartfield student may be salt and light in the leadership roles he will assume in the future. Scriptures: Romans 12:8, Matthew 5:13-16, Daniel 1:17-21, and Daniel 2:48-49
Honor: A culture of honor starts first with giving our all to Jesus Christ knowing that He is the source of our lives. To honor others in the light and grace of God’s love, we consider others above ourselves by seeking their betterment and growth in Him. By placing others first, we honor them and our God. Scriptures: Leviticus 19:32, Exodus 20:12, Romans 13:1; I Samuel 2:30, I Peter 2:17, and Ephesians 6:1-3
