Melody Christian Academy serves VPK-12 grade and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Cognia, and ILCS.


Melody Christian Academy was founded in 1981 by Pastor Bob and Carol Champion as a part of Melody Christian Life Church. A small beginning in one room of the church building, Melody has grown to occupy multiple first class facilities on a beautiful 20-acre campus.


We now have a student enrollment of 200 and have graduates in Universities, business, the medical field, and all walks of life. 


Our vision is to develop leaders who turn the world upside down.


We offer weekly chapel services, Bible classes, art, sign language, small groups, a fully equipped computer lab, media training, AP courses, an on-site counselor for our elementary grades, and degreed and experienced teachers.


Our students are also able to participate in local high school sports as well as dual enrollment.


A variety of scholarships are available. Scholarships for students with IEP’s, students that have physical problems, students that have been bullied or a victim of violence, and also students who qualify financially.

Foundational Truths: Knowing that “all truth is God’s truth,” we believe that academic excellence must be built on a foundation of faith, of which Jesus Christ is the Cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20). Therefore, His Word, the Holy Bible, is fundamental in our preparation of curriculum, and His Spirit is the guiding light of its implementation. Truly, a Christ-centered education is a vital key to dealing with the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and physical health of children.


Responsibility of the Christian Parents: We hold Christ-centered education to be a mandate of God to the Christian family in order to establish children as disciples of Christ, vessels of honor, and productive citizens. While a Christ-centered education is the responsibility of the parent, the Christian school is a useful ally in meeting those educational needs.


Responsibility of the Church, Home, and School: We believe that a balanced Christian education is both an extension of the ministries of the church and of the home (Acts 5:42). We find Christian education to be the third strand in the chord of agreement between parents, ministers, and educators in the development of young people. Like parents and ministers, educators seek to nurture God’s purpose and plan for each child and to equip them academically so they may realize their full potential in that plan.


Responsibility of the Educator: Our campus is a peaceful and joyous one that values orderliness and honor between faculty and students. We believe that these virtues facilitate a positive, successful learning process. Our administrators, faculty, and staff desire to teach by example as well as by instruction.


Responsibility of the Student: We hope to inspire the spirit of excellence within each child. It is said of Daniel that he was skillful in all wisdom, discernment and understanding because an excellent spirit was found in him (Daniel 1:4; 5:12). That spirit of excellence is the compass by which a child can set the course of their academic career and Christian life. Therefore, each child must determine that they will live up to the vast potential that God has willed for their life. Exhibiting an honorable character, diligent approach to education, and inquisitive nature, each student will succeed as he or she takes responsibility for their own spiritual, mental, social, and athletic progress.
