Bailey’s Grove Baptist Schools uses A Beka Book Christian school curriculum. We believe A Beka sets forth a standard of excellence in academics, quality, appearance, balance, and integration of Bible throughout their materials.

Graduates must have attended their final semester with Bailey’s Grove Baptist Schools, and must have accumulated a minimum of 23 credits in the following areas of study:

Bible 4 Social Studies 3
English 4 Foreign Language 2
Math 4 Electives 2
Science 3 P.E. / Health 1

One of the qualities you will find among the teaching staff is a heart for ministry. The reason is simple. The school is a ministry. Our teachers have a sincere desire to serve the Lord; believing that teaching in the Christian School is the will of God for their lives. We both encourage and instruct our teachers to communicate effectively with parents. The teachers are in no way a replacement or substitute for the parents but rather co-laborers together with Christ in an effort to assist the parents in the rearing of their child. Therefore, communication between teachers and parents is a must. Your student’s teacher will contact you for a parent-teacher meeting at the end of the first grading period. You may call the school and schedule an appointment with your student’s teacher and/or principal at any time.


A school dress code is important for several reasons. Of primary importance is that it sets minimum standards for modesty. It is widely recognized that behavior is related to dress. A proper climate for learning demands attire appropriate for the classroom. The administration reserves the right to be the final judge of clothing or fashions that may be deemed inappropriate.
