Character. Scholarship. Excellence.
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Battle Ground Academy. We hope that you will take time to look on our website and find out more about us, but more importantly, we hope that you’ll join us on campus to see the school in action.

Battle Ground Academy is a unique environment: a school that provides a state-of-the-art, 21st Century traditions that only 125 years of independent school education can bring.

Character, Scholarship, and Excellence comprise a framework for our educational approach. Whether it is through the Honor Code that holds our students to a high standard of personal integrity or the engaging challenges that students meet in the classroom, the art studio, or the athletic field, these three characteristics have distinguished a BGA education and BGA graduates since the school’s inception.

Ultimately, we want to help students become the very best version of themselves that they can become. These are exciting times to be a Wildcat as we honor our past and look forward to a bright and successful future.
