At Lipscomb Academy, we believe that academic and spiritual growth go hand in hand.

Then we live out that service in the form of worship, service opportunities and mission work throughout the world.Spiritual Formation
We incorporate the arts into a balanced curriculum so that students can develop their talents, celebrate acts of creativity, and discover inspiration everywhere.
Just as we ask students to engage fully in class and a relationship with Christ, we encourage them to give their all on the field, court, or track.
