Welcome to HBA

Thank you for showing interest in Heartland Baptist Academy.

Heartland Baptist Academy is an Independent Baptist school closed to public enrollment. As a ministry of Heartland Baptist Bible College, HBA will only accept children of students or staff at HBBC, or faithful members of local Independent Baptist churches.

Due to limited space, admission is prioritized first to children of HBBC staff or students. All other admission will be granted first come, first served.

Parents who desire admission for their children, and who are in agreement with HBA's philosophy and doctrinal position, should follow the steps outlined below.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Applying for Enrollment

All applicants for HBA are required to submit their applications online using a program called Gradelink.  This is a quick, efficient, and secure way of providing general information about the applicant(s) in question.  If the applicant(s) is accepted then the account that is created in Gradelink will be used throughout the year to show assignments, grades, discipline, calendar events, and more.

Apply for HBA


Parent Questionnaire

This online form supplies HBA with a better understanding of the applicant's family and personal background.  Online completion and submission allows for more thoughtful answers to be supplied than time would allow for during the official interview.  Thorough answers are appreciated and will also save time during the interview.  You will need to dedicate at least 20 minutes to complete this online form as all answers will be lost once the page is left.

Official Interview

This meeting is scheduled by HBA upon receiving the aforementioned forms.  The meeting will begin with our principal interviewing the prospective student(s) to get to know them better.  Following this interview, applicants will receive a printed survey to complete while the parents meet with the principal.  The parent meeting provides an opportunity for our principal to discuss with you the philosophy of our school, review the submitted application and questionnaire, answer questions you might have, and assess whether HBA meets the needs of your family.  We require that the applying student(s) and at least one parent/legal guardian be in attendance for this one hour meeting.

Entrance Testing

Every applicant applying for grades 1-12 must complete an entrance test to determine proper placement within our program.  A Beka is a challenging curriculum that pushes students at a steady pace.  As a result, this testing helps to gauge the applicants ability to succeed within HBA.  Testing is scheduled during the official interview and typically is completed within an hour.


The results of each application will be confirmed by letter once the above process is completed.


Non-Discrimination Policy

Heartland Baptist Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, or any other school-administered programs.
