    We are all excited to be back on campus every day and seeing these bright, sweet faces here! We all know that this year will be the very best of many great years at BA. We have a few new people this year which we know will add to the terrific staff we have in making this our best group ever:

    • Mrs. Nora Pierce is back and teaching 7th math and 8th pre-algebra.
    • Mrs. Lisa Ables is teaching 1st grade
    • Mrs. Kim Manor moved to 3rd grade after the retirement of Ms. Joyce Williams.
    • Mrs. Minta Davis is teaching science.
    • Coach Ed Waldrup is teaching P.E. and coaching girls’ basketball and track.
    • Coach Brett Warren is teaching social studies while assisting in football and heading boys’ track.
    • Mrs. Donna Becker is our Kindergarten assistant and in charge of our after school daycare.
    • Coach Natalie Whitehead is head girls’ softball coach and assisted by former student-athlete Madilyn Manor.
    • Coaches Steve Carr and Matt Meeks will take over our baseball program.

    We have made several improvements to our facilities that will enhance academic achievement and our sports’ teams:

    • We have upgraded our elementary computer lab tremendously by adding six new computers.
    • We are in the process of acquiring several new Smartboards for classrooms.
    • We have built new dugouts for our softball field.
    • New equipment has been added to our playground.
    • We now have a concrete basketball court for our elementary playground as well.
    • Plans have been made to repave our lower parking lot this year.

    As you can see, we have committed to making Benton Academy one of the finest campuses in the MAIS. If you would care to contribute to our upgrades, please contact the office and we will assist you.

    Thank you for your continued support and GO RAIDERS!

    Welcome to Benton Academy’s official website. I hope you can find all the information you need as well as enjoyment from this site. Benton Academy strives to be the best in all aspects of the educational process of our students. Academic achievement is at the top of the long list of items in which we strive for greatness. Athletics, the arts, and other extracurricular activities help shape and mold students into outstanding individuals when they leave here. Our students are well-prepared for college and careers when they leave Raider Nation.

    We are always looking to improve our facilities, technology, and teaching strategies in our ever-changing world. Changes are in place to upgrade our facilities for our students on every part of our campus. New technology upgrades, such as our cafeteria plan, Gradelink grading system, and texting program are improving communications between our patrons and staff. Our new air conditioning system in the gym will allow all activities there to be enjoyed in comfort. Our administration, staff, and board of directors have long-range and short-range plans for the continued improvement of our school.

    If you have any questions about our school or website, please do not hesitate to call us here at Benton Academy. We would love for you to visit our campus and see what we offer our students in the areas of academics, athletics, and other activities. Thank you for your time and continued support of Benton Academy and GO RAIDERS!
