Knowing that our students must be prepared for service in this world and in the world to come, Bahamas Academy is deliberate in the spiritual and academic nurture of our students.
It was not by accident that Bahamas Academy for the 2016-2017 school year, chose the theme, Pursing Excellence with Christ as our Guide. We experienced success spiritually and academically. The Lord blessed our efforts in the two weeks of spiritual emphasis and through His power, souls were won to His kingdom. We regard this as a monumental success in our Lord and Saviour!
Gratitude is extended to our hard working teachers and staff for their commitment to Christian education. We also recognize our dedicated parents for choosing Bahamas Academy and thank them for the support they have given over the years.
As we reflect on our Bahamas Junior Certificate (BJC) and Bahamas General Certificate of Secondary Education (BGCSE) results of 2017, we commend our rising stars on their outstanding performance.
The three top achievers in the BJC are:
