Character. Scholarship. Excellence.
Battle Ground Academy’s mission is to ignite and nurture student curiosity, intellect, and character.
Battle Ground Academy’s Upper School is a setting in which any student can flourish. At the forefront of our program is our gifted, experienced faculty who challenge learners in a comprehensive, college-preparatory environment, using the latest methodology and innovative technology, within a 21st century curriculum. Their aim is to empower students to think critically, problem solve, and effectively apply their analysis of information. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to provide personal attention and establish lifelong relationships with their pupils. Furthermore, our robust support services reflect our belief that challenge and nurture are not mutually exclusive goals.

In addition, the students of Battle Ground Academy are taught the principles of "Character, Scholarship, and Excellence" through a variety of learning experiences. They are taught to respect each individual, help those in need, and to serve others. Each year they are engaged in their local community, making a difference in the lives of those around them, while also mentoring, guiding, and encouraging their classmates.

Lastly, our students are immersed in a variety of co-curricular endeavors that serve as an extension of our classrooms. Each student has the opportunity to develop an understanding and true passion for the area in which they excel, whether that be through participation in one of our thirty club offerings, comprehensive fine arts curriculum, or our competitive athletic program.

I would like to personally invite you to visit our campus and to experience all that is BGA. We are so proud of our traditions and so excited about our future!
