As a ministry of Grace Baptist Church of Anderson, Indiana Christian Academy was founded in 1973 by Dr. Don Camp. The Academy is a member of the Indiana Association of Christian Schools and its parent organization, the American Association of Christian Schools. We are also accredited by the state approved American Association of Christian Schools.
In its forty-second year of existence, many cosmetic changes have taken place at our school, but the foremost purpose of ICA remains to develop Christ-like character in the life of each student. God’s Word stands as the absolute upon which all academics and activities can be solidly built.
Indiana Christian Academy believes that all truth is God’s truth and everything we do and study comes from Him since He is the Creator of all things. We do not believe there is a dichotomy between those things that are spiritual and those that are not. Therefore our educational goals are built upon an understanding of God’s desire for His children as He instructed in His Word and are based upon His demonstration of this in the life of Jesus found in Luke 2:52.
