We are honored and very excited to be able to work with the student-athlete here at Tabernacle Baptist Academy. Participation in athletics develops the student mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. A full varsity athletic program is available for those who wish to participate and who qualify. All students are encouraged to try out for the various squads at TBA. We consider the athletic fields or the gymnasium courts as just another classroom to develop the total person to conform more to the image of Jesus Christ. We would like to accomplish four primary goals through our Athletic Department:
All participants are expected to maintain the same Biblical standards that are required during the school day. The standards of conduct apply to practice sessions, games, and any other time the student-athlete is representing the school. Being a member of an athletic team or the cheerleading squad demands sacrifice and much devoted effort. Parents, as well as participants, must be willing to spend extra time and effort if the squads are to be successful.
At TBA, we seek to develop the God-given talents of each child to their fullest potential. We not only give them a hands-on approach to their specified instrument, but we also seek to train the child to use their talents for God’s glory whether it be music, speech, or art.
The ELEMENTARY students in grades K5-6th participate in the music program by learning the basics of singing, reading music, notation, history, and games. The students are also required to attend the annual Christmas and Spring Concerts. The elementary participate in an hour program of art once a week. Students learn the basics of art as well as the opportunity to be creative. Elementary classes are also afforded the opportunity to participate in speech through various programs, plays, and ODACS individual categories.
SECONDARY students in grades 7-12 have the opportunity to participate in choir, speech, art, and drama.
All students have the opportunity to participate in our annual ODACS Competition, and students in grades 9-12 are eligible to participate in the annual Fine Arts Festival at Bob Jones University. Our students are recognized and awarded highly for their talents, voices, and presentation.
