ACA is an academy developing and educating a spiritually astute and globally aware generation. We believe a child saved, is a soul saved and a life spared. Agapeland Christian Academy, formerly Agapeland Christian Child Care, was founded by the late Pastor Ted M. Johnson in 1987 with Mrs. Doris Mangrum being the first director.  In 1999, Agapeland Christian Child Care became Agapeland Christian Academy and embarked upon private elementary education with one Kindergarten class with the aspiration of adding a grade level each year.  


Agapeland currently serves pre-school students age 2-5 years, academy students K- 3rd and Before/After school ages 6–12 years. ACA, once under the umbrella of Bakersfield Compassion Christian Center, transitioned under the 501©(3) of the Ted M. Johnson Empowerment Square Community Development Corporation for the purposes of growth and expansion.


Our program is designed to induce learning through repetition, hands-on experiences, daily routines, and active play; which will foster independence, induce decision-making and teach our children self-respect, respect for others, and develop a sense of unity.  We believe that a return to Godly principles incorporated with the basic foundations for learning will assist us in producing well rounded individuals, capable of taking on a world of challenges.
