Blue Mountain Academy


Blue Mountain Academy (BMA) started the school year strong with a total enrollment of 130 students—higher than expected. Students and faculty kicked off the year together growing spiritually during “Focus on Christ’s Ultimate Sacrifice” (FOCUS) week, with guest speakers from the Pennsylvania Conference’s CORE evangelism school, a one-year discipleship and evangelism training program for young adults. Students spent the week in prayer, fasting, and recommitment their relationship with God amidst their regular school activities. 

“God touched many souls during the week. Some came requesting more prayer after the meetings and others recommitted themselves for the gospel ministry,” says Sanghae Kim, BMA chaplain. “FOCUS week is like sowing seeds in the dirt. God has sown seeds and I’m waiting for them to grow to be big trees.” 

The students at BMA were inspired by FOCUS week to continue growing spiritually and academically. Many feel that they are being well equipped for further education after high school. 

“My plan for the school year is to excel in my learning ability by improving my time management and efficiency. I can’t wait to complete these goals at BMA,” said Nathan Messenger, sophomore. 

I feel grateful that I’m spending my senior year at BMA,” shared Grace Park, senior. “This year I want to be a leader at school through Christ’s example. I’m doing my best to finish strong and get ready for the next chapter of my life.” 

Your gift to Blue Mountain Academy today plants seeds in the hearts of young people, enabling them to not only grow academically, but spiritually—preparing them for the future here and eternally.
