Berean Baptist Christian Academy, located in Ogden, Utah, is a private parochial school. Established in 1978 by the Berean Baptist Church of Ogden, Utah, Berean Baptist Christian Academy began as an ACE (accelerated Christian education) school. In 2005, the school transitioned to a more traditional approach as a Classical and Christian School. Today, Berean Baptist Christian Academy is led by Pastor David Mallinak and enrolls approximately 20 students from kindergarten through 12th grade.
Berean Baptist Christian Academy's mission is to "maintain a rigorous academic program where each student develops a lifelong love of learning." To aid in this cause, instructors at Berean Baptist Academy emphasize the grammar, logic, and rhetoric of the material they teach. According to the school's website, this means that "we present the fundamental rules of each subject (the grammar), we show the ordered relationship of particulars to each subject (the logic), and we teach how the grammar and logic of each subject may be clearly expressed (the rhetoric)."
Beyond academics, Berean Baptist Christian Academy's mission is to provide students an educational environment with a special focus on Christian beliefs and values. Instructors use Christian textbooks, teach an Apologetics course as a part of the school's Bible curriculum, and strive to instill in their students a "true love for all of God's people."
