"Academic Challenges, Caring Teachers, Great Friendships--Just What We Needed!"


     "I so appreciate Bristol Academy.   The work of the teachers and leadership team benefited our son so greatly these past few years.  

      The course offerings have been just what we needed to supplement our homeschool program.   The instructors have been “top shelf” people (yes, EVERY one of them), well educated and knowledgeable in their subjects, good communicators, and truly compassionate and caring individuals that our son  has come to love, as well as respect.

     The class location has been convenient, clean, safe and appropriate; the structure of the group is well thought out, planned, and executed with an emphasis on Christian values.

      Lastly, the smiles, friendships, shared loved/concern/hopes for each of our students (as well as their families) has been beautiful. 


     What a wonderful experience Bristol Academy has been for our family.  As we, at our home, move into the “college years,” we do so with fond memories of these high school years shared with all of our Bristol Academy friends, and will miss each of them.   The experience of being a part of this group has been beautiful in so many ways for us.


      We have noted an amazing amount of student growth in our son since enrolling with Bristol Academy; particularly in regards to more in-depth subject matter interest, source exploration, and report writing.  He has become more self-challenged than ever before, which has been great to see.


      We hope Bristol Academy continues to grow, and attract students/families desiring this wonderful Christian environment for richly learning and growing.  We will be praying for the students, teachers, and leaders of this education ministry.  Bristol Academy is helping raise the next generation of Christian adults, parents, leaders, and yes, educators!"


--Michael & Nancy (Lisa) Mumpower, whose son graduated in 2019
