LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A new Christian school is planning to open in Lowndes County this August. Braveheart Academy will be a ministry of Yorkville Heights Church of God in Columbus. It will serve Kindergarten through 8th Grade students with the goal of providing an educational experience based on Christian values and beliefs.
Pastor/Headmaster, Bobby Richardson says, “Our community is growing, and the need for Biblical foundation teaching of the Word of God is very much needed. Our families are having an outcry about it, so that’s what we’re here for. We’re here to provide that education for our families.”
