Statement of Faith

At Saint Basil Academy, we believe in fostering an inclusive & diverse community where students from all religious backgrounds are welcomed, respected, & embraced. Our foundation is rooted in the Christian faith, & we strive to provide an environment that encourages spiritual growth, character development, & academic excellence. Although Saint Basil Academy was founded on the Orthodox Christian faith, students with differing religious backgrounds are welcomed.  

Saint Basil Academy subscribes to the Nicene Creed, which was the common statement of faith of undivided Christianity from the fourth century on & remains the most universally recognized statement of the Christian faith: 

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven & earth, & of all things visible & invisible; & in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages; Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father; by Whom all things were made: Who for us men & for our salvation came down from heaven & was incarnate of the Holy Spirit & the Virgin Mary, & was made man; & was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, & suffered & was buried, & the third day He arose again according to the Scriptures; & ascended into heaven, & sits at the right hand of the Father; & He shall come again with glory to judge the living & the dead; Whose Kingdom shall have no end & in the Holy Spirit, the Lord & Giver of life Who proceeds from the Father; Who with the Father & the Son together is worshiped & glorified, who spoke by the prophets. In one holy, catholic, & apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead & the life of the world to come. Amen.
