Happy New Year! We have much to be thankful for this year, from the celebration of Christ’s birth, the start of a new year and the gift of partnership with your family through the Christian education of your children.
The start of a new year initiates our reenrollment process. Children who currently attend Christian Academy, junior academy through 11th grades (with the exception of JA-4 entering kindergarten), who will be returning for next school year must reenroll in January. The reenrollment deadline for the 2021-2022 school year is January 20, 2021. Reenrolling by this deadline is always very important, especially this year as we have been blessed with many families wanting to join us next year. We want to continue to serve your family and would not want you to lose your spot, as immediately after reenrollment we will begin placement of new families seeking to enroll their children at Christian Academy.

For us the birth of Jesus changes everything. As John wrote, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” (John 1:14 ESV). It is this Jesus we want your children to know intimately prior to graduation. We thank you for your trust and continued partnership as we work diligently to ensure every child at Christian Academy is supported unconditionally in a grace-filled environment and develops according to God’s will to impact the world for His glory and Kingdom.
We have masks instead of costumes, a classroom instead of a stage, but we are worshiping and celebrating the same Savior!

We are so blessed to be able to share our Christmas program with you through a virtual platform. Please click above to watch the program at any time. You are also welcome to share this link with family and friends. We are so thankful that God worked out all of the details for us to be able to record this program before our switch to Remote Learning.
- Thank you to Mrs. Kristi Stivers for her dedication and determination in making sure that our students would still be able to have their Christmas program, especially during this difficult year!
- Thank you to the Technical Team at Southeast Christian Church – Southwest Campus for the hours spent recording and editing the program.
- Thank you to Mrs. Tonya Morgan for her generosity of time, talent and resources to make over 100 Christmas face masks for our students to wear during the recording.
- Thank you to our Southwest Elementary students and 8th grade students for using their God-given talents to provide this special time of worship and Christmas celebration.
Glory to God for the gift of His Son – our Savior, Jesus Christ!
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6
Thank you for all you do for our school. As you have heard many times, the cost of tuition and fees simply does NOT cover the entire cost to educate our students. That is why we have an annual campaign called our ALL IN! campaign and this year has been like no other in our history. We need your help more than ever before to raise the resources needed to operate our schools. The reason we have a $400,000 need is because we strive to keep tuition costs reasonable and affordable to ALL IN! our community.
As you think about how your family will participate in this year’s ALL IN! campaign, please think about all the great teachers we have across all our campuses. Here is an example from our Indiana Campus, Kristi Richards.
“She has gone WAY above and beyond duty to make sure the students can benefit from special area classes. She comes up with unique ways and systems to make things work for the kids. Because of their traveling nature, they are exposed to more students and are at more of a health risk in these times. I really truly admire the huge effort she has made on behalf of our kids!”
Thank you and God bless you and our school!

As you think about how your family will participate in this year’s ALL IN! campaign, please think about all the great teachers we have across all our campuses. Here is just one example, Morgan Longtine at our English Station Campus.
“Morgan is an exceptional teacher in every way. She was my student teacher six years ago, and I could tell from the first day that this girl was born to be a teacher. Everything came so naturally to her! Morgan has now been my teammate for five years and she is definitely a team player! She offers to help quickly, she carries more than her share of the load and she shares all her wonderful ideas willingly. As a teacher, she is everything a student needs and a parent wants. Morgan is intelligent and compassionate. She is a whiz with technology and makes things relevant to her students. She goes over and above to craft fun, engaging lessons, and she does everything with a sense of excellence. Above all else she has a heart for God and a desire to lead all her students to know and love Him more. Her greatest desire is to infuse biblical truths into her everyday conversations with her students and others, so they will grow closer to God and serve Him well. This year, she was asked to teach the Virtual Academy, had only three weeks of preparation, and has done a beautiful job getting it up and running smoothly since the start. Her technology skills, combined with the understanding of how to deliver quality instruction to her online students, makes her the perfect choice for this new position. If you truly want to have someone who is ALL IN! for Christian Academy, you need to look no further than Miss Morgan Longtine.”
Thank you and God bless you and our school!
Thank you for all you do for our school. As you think about how your family will participate in this year’s ALL IN! campaign, please watch the video below about one of our outstanding teachers, Kathy Coble, PE teacher at the Southwest Campus.
“Enough cannot be said about Mrs. Coble and how grateful we are to have her at our Southwest Campus. Not only is she a fantastic PE teacher, she is always willing to jump in and help out where help is needed. Every day she helps out in the cafeteria during her planning/lunch, opening milk cartons, ketchup packets, etc. During an eight-week stretch when our previous manager was out, she served lunch and helped us roll out and set up tables almost every day. She is always seeking out ways to serve others. Mrs. Coble has always been kind, loving and encouraging to all of the students at our campus. It is obvious that she genuinely cares for them, not only in their educational life, but in their everyday and spiritual life as well. She brings so much value to our campus family and is a joy to work with.”
Thank you and God bless you and our school!
Christian Academy School System has just installed pūrGenix’s® advanced ultraviolet air purification systems in both their English Station and New Albany campuses to help fight the spread of germs and create healthier and safer environments for faculty and students to learn, work and collaborate.
Today, more than ever, people have realized that outdated, ill-equipped buildings impact their health and safety. Traditional building air systems were not designed with people’s health and safety in mind, nor were they designed to prevent the spread of germs and disease.
With the help of Lexington-based pūrGenix’s® state-of-the-art ultraviolet light technology, these new systems will purify air, helping kill dangerous germs that are normally left to circulate, untreated, within the schools.
Christian Academy is the first secondary school in the country to install the pūrGenix® technology. With this equipment, Christian Academy will be designated as a pūrBuilding™ – a building with air systems designed to help prevent the spread of germs.
pūrGenix® is one of the nation’s leaders in UV Air Purifcation technology. With over 10 years of experience and more than 600 installations, pūrGenix® has achieved dramatic results in the most demanding environments. Hospitals using the pūrGenix® technology, such as Harrison Memorial in Cynthiana, KY, have risen to be among the nation’s leading hospitals in infection prevention. Since installing the pūrGenix® technology in 2017, Harrison Memorial has seen amazing results, such as zero bloodstream infections, zero surgical site infections and zero cases of hospital-acquired pneumonia.
The key to the pūrGenix® technology is that it helps prevent dangerous germs from circulating throughout the building via the building’s air Handling Systems. Traditional air filtration systems allow germs to pass through – putting everyone at risk. Air handling systems are cool dark, damp places, making them the perfect breeding ground for dangerous germs. Air systems then spread these germs throughout the building, contaminating newly cleaned surfaces.
The pūrGenix® technology uses Ultraviolet C-band energy, which is a high-frequency energy (similar to what protects us in the ozone) that breaks down the DNA or RNA inside germs, killing germs and preventing them from replicating.
With this installation, Christian Academy will provide a safer and healthier environment for students to learn and collaborate.
According to Executive Director Moe Lundrigan, “We’ve always looked at ways to make our physical environment safer, but we did not anticipate this degree of a biological/environmental need. But God did. We hired Steve French as our facilities director, little realizing how important his background would be.”
Steve French brought almost 40 years of facilities management and 30 of those years were in hospitals, including Jewish and St. Mary’s healthcare. With a degree in Biomedical Engineering (from the UofL Speed School), he was indeed in the “right place at the right time.”
“I’ve been familiar with Purgenix’s success in the health field and they became the perfect fit for our larger campuses,” said French. “Combined with personal conduct of our students and staff (masks, social distancing, hand washing and contact tracing), this purification system adds to our levels of safety and precaution necessary in this challenging time. We’re excited and blessed to be able to offer this to our students and staff.”
“At pūrGenix® our mission is to create healthier, places to work, learn, collaborate, and heal. We are excited to help a forward-thinking school like Christian Academy get their students and faculty back in their building safely. Health, mind and soul are important for everyone and Christian Academy made the health and safety of their students and faculty a priority when they invested in becoming a pūrBuilding™” says Sam Perkins, CEO pūrGenix®.
