The ministry of AVA exists so that families in Belem and surrounding communities can
choose Kingdom education for their children from pre-school K3 through grade 12.
Kingdom education is defined as “the life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of
leading a child to Christ, building a child up in Christ, and equipping a child to serve
Christ.” It involves the integration and application of biblical truths provided in the Bible
to areas of the Christian worldview, educational programs and activities, and personal
developmental and maturity. These Ends are to be achieved and/or maintained at
Amazon Valley Academy to the glory of God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and our
Comforter, the Holy Spirit. Students are directed to remain true to the Lord with all of
their heart, mind, and soul, exemplifying the name “Christian” as they impact their
society for Christ (Acts 11:19-26).
AVA 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 Academy. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic
origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and
loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
