Give Kids The World


During Fall break, Madison Academy students serve children with life threatening illnesses and their families. “Give Kids The World” is a program designed to give these families an escape to the theme parks in the Orlando area at no Orlando charge. Our volunteers serve meals in the Gingerbread House, dish up ice cream sundaes to help beat the heat, play characters in a parade – anything to help these families take a vacation from their illness. The work is emotionally draining, but helping put a smile on the face of one of these special children is its own reward.

The Andes


Each Spring break, Madison Academy students travel to Ecuador to volunteer at the Hacienda of Hope and the HOH Christian Academy.  This beautiful home and school are nestled in shadows of Mt. Cayambe high in the Andes.  We have been involved in this project for more than a decade serving and building relationships with children and people in the surrounding communities. Our team not only experiences a new culture, they learn the personal stories of children who escaped a world of abuse and neglect to find love and hope. Their experience changes their view of the world and exposes them to opportunities and careers focused on serving others.

The Caribbean


In the summer, our teens travel to the Dominican Republic to work with Manna Global Ministries. Since 1998, Manna’s children home has been a “shelter from the storm” for nearly 50 children. Many have come in need of temporary care due to separation of parents, or difficult financial times in their homes.  Eventually, most of the children return to their families but during their time at Manna, they are loved and cared for by foster parents who love and trust Christ as their savior and love the children as if they were their own.

Why choose a private Christian education? High academic standards, a healthy, community environment where parents are welcomed and, most importantly, a lasting spiritual impact on your child are just a few of the reasons. We would love to provide you with more information on how you can give your child the gift a Christian education. Madison Academy offers academics that exceed core standards.  Most importantly, we take a holistic approach to teaching our children, as we strive to help them grow in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and man. Madison Academy is accredited by AdvancedEd (SACS) and the National Christian School Association (NCSA.)

Campus Hours


Our offices are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the school year.  Summer hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

The campus will be open after hours for student activities, including games, performances, and practices.

Student Parking


Students must register cars with the office and obtain (for a nominal fee) a parking sticker to be placed in the lower right hand corner of the windshield.  Remember that driving on campus is a privilege, not a right.

Visitor/Event Parking


Activities at Madison Academy tend to draw large crowds, placing a strain on parking.  We are working diligently to improve parking for all activities.

Student HelpDesk Services


Madison Academy is Alabama’s first Apple Distinguished School. The integration of technology into the learning process is central to our teaching methodology. Every student has access to a device, whether it be a tablet or a laptop, and we strive to maintain them and the infrastructure that supports them. We have certified repair personnel on staff to minimize the down time for students or teachers in the event a problem occurs.

Campus Lab


Since every student has a device, why are campus labs necessary. Some of our courses require special software.  Our students use technology for graphic design, animation, 3D modeling, engineering, and much more. Our labs give us flexibility to put extraordinary tools in the hands of our students.

Campus Leaders 


Some students are the most fulfilled themselves when they use their gifts of spiritual discernment and organization to provide spiritual opportunities for others. Campus Leaders—diligent, responsible, and in tune with the spiritual needs of their peers—are advisors and assistants to the Campus Minister. They help plan and lead our global missions, chapels, student service days, and spiritual emphasis days. This position is offered as an elective to students in grades 9-12, but Campus Minister approval, a strong faith in Christ, and a heart of service are required.

Student Ambassadors


MA Ambassadors have it all: winning personality, strong character, academic prowess, and an unwavering faith in Christ.  Because “to whom much is given, much is required,” our Ambassadors serve in every leadership role as needed.  They give tours and welcome prospective students and their families to our campus; they tutor underclassmen and elementary students; they help plan and lead chapels, global missions, and spiritual emphasis days; they publish regular updates about student life at MA; and they represent our school in the community.
