New life is being brought to the former Lakeside Baptist Church building on New Jersey Road thanks to a classical way of education
Geneva Classical Academy, a private K4-12th grade classical education Christian school, recently purchased the 75,000-square-foot campus and 12 acres of land. They plan to renovate and then move from their current Lakeland Highlands Road location to this new campus in the fall of 2019.
Lakeside Baptist Church now meets under the name Journey Church at the Clubhouse in Eaglebrooke.
“It’s always been our goal to use our facilities to benefit the most people. We’ve rented from churches for over two decades, and we want to be able to lease back to the Church,” says Headmaster Rich Cali. Because of this, Geneva will lease the auditorium and connected workroom space to Grace City Church.
Headmaster Cali also emphasizes how thankful they are for the help of Parkway Church (formerly Highlands Baptist Church – where their Lakeland Highlands Road campus is currently located) and Journey Church during this transition.
Talitha Bean, the new Community Development Director says, “We are thrilled for the opportunity to be engaging our community; the Lord has taken 20 years to prepare Geneva for such a time as this!” With 161 students, Geneva currently has their highest enrollment. Their best days are certainly ahead, and they are excited for this pivotal time in their school’s history.
Geneva Classical Academy uniquely utilizes classical methodology and a thoroughly integrated curriculum to instill in students a lifelong love for learning. Students are equipped with critical thinking skills as they learn how to evaluate and think for themselves. Geneva affirms God as the source and orchestrator of all truth, goodness, and beauty and strives to graduate men and women who thoughtfully evaluate and passionately engage with all spheres of the world around them.To learn more about Geneva Classical Academy, visit their website here.
