Runnels Academy was founded to answer the need for an educational alternative in Big Spring, combining a Christ-centered atmosphere and focus with the classical method and philosophy for teaching.


We believe that effective teaching is more than just imparting knowledge. Our primary directive is to cultivate a love of learning in our students.


Mission Statement


To inspire and equip students through a classical education and a biblical world view to find their individual, God-given purpose in order to better their community --and the world-- for the glory of God.  

Tuition payments for the 2018-19 year will be made through the FACTS system, which is utilized by many other private schools, colleges, and universities.  Click on the logo to complete your agreement.
