Principal’s Message

Over the last two decades I have taught a variety of different schools with varying campus cultures, backgrounds, goals. Having such a diverse working experience has given me a unique and informed perspective of what sets Fort Worth Adventist Junior Academy apart from other schools.

Robyn GrimsleyPrimarily, it is the environment that the students learn in. We have rigorous academics, hands-on learning and a plethora of unique learning opportunities in the forms of clubs, programs and academics. And, while all of these contribute to the academic preparation of a student, no child can learn if they do not feel safe, accepted, loved and valued.   Our campus has a family environment that lets even the toughest exterior on a child fall away, where they feel safe to be who they really are and know that their peers are their friends, their teachers are their mentors and their school is their second home.

I know another component of our campus being set apart is because there is a permeating culture of excellence among the faculty and staff; they will not settle for less than or good-enough.  The teachers consistently seek-out new and innovative ways to reach their students and ensure they receive the best they possibly can…the best education, the best social environment, the best physical education, the best emotionally-safe environment, and most importantly the best spiritual environment. In these educators, I have seen something that comes from the heart and not from a degree: balancing structure and academia with love and patience, mentorship in conjunction with teaching and knowing each student as an individual person instead of just a body in a seat.

There are a multiply of other factors that make this campus the one that I chose to work at. From our expansive land, the anonymity of our location,  our multitude of experiential learning programs for students including, but not limited to:

  • Chess Club for 3rd-8th
  • Weekly MakerSpace  visits
  • Music Class
  • Robotics Club for 5th & 6th Grade
  • Recess
  • Physical Education
  • One to One iPads for 7th & 8th Graders
  • Team Sports for Middle Schoolers
  • Outdoor School Camp for 5th & 6th graders
  • Class trip for 8th graders
  • Weekly Chapel
  • Yearly Community Service Initiatives

But all of these things do not clearly indicate what sets us apart.

It is simply one word:   Jesus.    He is the difference on our campus from other schools.  It is because of His permeating presence that the students feel loved, accepted and valued by their peers and instructors. It is because of a love for Him that the teachers tirelessly seek to improve on what is already great and look for new and innovative ways to reach their students. The safety, love, mercy and patience of Christ is palpable on our campus, and that is what sets us apart.

I invite you to put us to the test! Come and see how our campus environment can positively impact the social, emotional, academic and physical well being of your child.
