Welcome to our new website!
Welcome to our new website! I trust you will find it an informative and enjoyable way to learn about Corn Bible Academy: who we are, what we do, how we serve others, and how we can serve you. Just as important for newcomers to CBA: how you can become a Crusader or a Crusader-fan.
This page is called the Superintendent’s Blog, but I will not be the sole contributor to this site. I hope to recruit other members of the CBA community: teachers, students, alumni, and friends to share their knowledge, ideas or viewpoints on the past, present and future of CBA. If you have thoughts to share, contact me and your idea may become our idea!
Let me start with the first question: Who are we? CBA is a Christian junior and senior high school located in Corn, Oklahoma, one of the oldest Christian schools in the western US! Since its doors opened in 1902 over 1700 students have graduated from CBA. Many of our alumni are living, working and serving Christ nearby: working on farms and in businesses, schools and churches. Other alumni are located at the ends of the earth where CBA-trained missionaries now serve.
Soon Corn Bible Academy will move from Corn, about twenty miles away to Clinton, Oklahoma, to a brand new campus in a more convenient location for future generations of students. Many people have asked me if we will keep the name Corn Bible Academy after we move. The answer is yes—though that answer might change in the future. But one part of our name will definitely not change: Corn Bible Academy! That is important for parents to understand.
“At CBA what children learn at school is the same as what they learn in church is the same as what they learn at home.” Parents have many choices where to send their children to school. There are many good schools with academics, sports, music, and other activities—and CBA has those things as well. What makes CBA different is our middle name: Bible! CBA students study Bible everyday in Bible class, and a biblical worldview is assumed in every other class as well. Parents, if Bible is important to you then you should consider CBA because Bible is at the center of our curriculum. As CBA alumnus Kenton Javorsky put it, “At CBA what children learn at school is the same as what they learn in church is the same as what they learn at home.”
Bible is our middle name—and that won’t change because that is who we are!
