Abbey Prep About Us

On behalf of the Faculty, Staff, and Board of Directors of Abbey Preparatory Academy, welcome to the 2017-18 school year! We are excited about our K-6th grade campus and the opportunity we have to offer educational programs that are both academically challenging and spiritually uplifting to students.

The School Vision

Keion D. Henderson, Pastor and Founder

We are grateful for the assurance in 1 Corinthians 3:6 that one plants, another waters, but it is God who grants the increase. We pray for our school throughout the year, recognizing that our success is rooted in God’s ability as our students pursue excellence in academics and faith.

Keion D. Henderson, Pastor and Founder

“Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (KJV)”
Throughout the Bible, we learn that educating our children is the responsibility of the parents and the church. I believe that God is calling has called ABBEY Preparatory Academy as well as other churches across America to build Christian schools designed to train our children completely in mind, body, soul, and spirit. Guiding students to grow into mature adults requires three things: a course (or curriculum), a community (our school family), and a culture (our school traditions and core beliefs).

The vision of ABBEY Preparatory Academy is to provide a place to train, prepare, and equip young people to fulfill their divine call and destiny and to take the gospel to the world.

In a Christian environment of strong academics and discipline, students will be taught to live in holiness. They will be taught to be men and women of integrity, and they will learn their responsibility in society as Christian men and women reflecting the love, light and hope of Jesus to the world. We realize the solemn responsibility under God to carry out this vision. We are looking for parents and students who share in this vision and who will unite with us to see it fulfilled.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of ABBEY Preparatory Academy to shape the lives of students through creativity, innovation and Christian values while preparing them to be life- long learners.

Philosophy of Christian Education

There are two philosophies of education in the world today. One is secular philosophy, which is based on the vain imaginations of man. The other is the Christian philosophy, which is based on the absolute truth found in the Word of God. ABBEY Preparatory Academy is established on the Christian philosophy of education and the realization that the only true education is an education founded on the Word of God. Real education is the process of learning God’s truth and learning to make decisions in every area of life based on Truth. Academics are not an end within themselves, but a means to an end, bringing glory to God and the development of Godly character in the student’s life. Academics are used as a tool to assist the student to grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.
