Awaken Christian Academy Exists to cultivate relationships with students and families, leading them to love and worship God, while serving others, to raise up leaders who boldly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in their generation, and equip students through a rigorous, Christ-centered educational program to impact the world.

Awaken Christian Academy (ACA) is a ministry of Awaken Church Las Vegas, serving  Pre-K to 12th grade, in dedication and honor to God. ACA was originally founded in 1994 by Pastor John Michaels.  We are committed to helping students become leaders within society through the use of Christian principles and by investing in their spiritual well-being.

The staff, the school board and the administration here are interested in the development of the whole child.  In relationship with the home and church, ACA exists to honor God by providing academic excellence while encouraging students to effectively integrate Biblical truth into their daily lives and impact the culture for Christ.

The Lord has blessed our school immensely year-by-year, and we look forward to seeing Him continue to work in mighty ways in accordance with Ephesians 3:20.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us”- Ephesians 3:20
