Who is responsible?

Educating our children is a tremendous responsibility that God has given to every parent. Education is the process of training the mind and the heart of the child "...in the way he should go." (Prov. 22:6) Valley Forge Baptist Academy has been established to assist, not replace, Christian parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility to train their children.
