Admissions

Bell Shoals Baptist Academy


Brandon  |  Apollo Beach

Our Early Learning Center is committed to partnering with parents to make learning a joyful and positive experience and must meet our age guidelines.  For our Jr. Kindergarten through eighth grade students, Bell Shoals Baptist Academy offers a Christ-centered academic program designed for students with average and above average academic ability. 

Students are admitted on the basis of past academic achievement and behavior to ensure that those enrolled sincerely desire a Christian education and are capable of achieving in a program designed for academic excellence. The school does not provide enrollment to students whose special educational or physical needs cannot be met by our existing programs, services, or staff.

Admission is based on selective criteria that include standardized test scores, prior school record, recommendations, evidence of good character, and a possible interview. The Admissions Committee will review each application.  The Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in admissions policies, financial assistance programs, athletic or other school-administered programs.  All students are accepted on a trial basis during the first grading period (30 days) before placement becomes final.

Visits or tours of the Academy are always available.  If you would like to schedule a tour and visit our campus in person fill out the Campus Visit Form and our registrar will be in touch with you.
