"...They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations." Isaiah 61:3b-4



Values such as diligence, faithfulness, respect, honesty, justice, and mercy aren't just talked about, but are demonstrated.

By modeling day to day the values and principals found in God's word, our faculty strives to promotes an environment that provides for the health and safety of children. In such a secure setting, children can learn unencumbered, free to fully participate and excel.



The mission of Brinkley Heights Urban Academy is to intervene in the lives of at-risk children and youth by providing a high quality individualized Christian education that promotes academic, physical, social, emotional and spiritual growth.
