Aletheia students consistently achieve above the national average, and even other private Christian schools accredited through the Association of Christian Schools International. Test scores are evaluated each year for areas of improvement by grade, subject, and individual student achievement.
Our AP Literature and Composition Class, taught by Mrs. Everett, is the first AP class we have offered on site. With her excellent instruction, every student who has taken this class up to this point has passed the AP exam!
Our on-site AP class selection will expand in the coming years, and we look forward to more student success.
Students may take other AP classes through Florida Virtual School, and a variety of these classes are currently available.
Special Student Achievements
Matthew Day Accepted to West Point!
We are so proud to announce that one of our graduating seniors, (Class of 2012) Matthew Day, was accepted into and now has graduated from West Point Military Academy! Matthew was a student at Aletheia for fourteen years. He has grown into a responsible and dedicated young man who has shown leadership and excellence in his life.
The United States Military Academy, founded on March 16, 1802, is a college that educates, trains and inspires the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country. Each graduate has the essential attributes for professional growth throughout a career as a U.S. Army officer. West Point graduates earn Bachelor of Science degrees and are commissioned as second lieutenants in the United States Army.
West Point is a place that cadets remember with pride for the rest of their lives. Keep Matthew in your prayers as he will soon experience the demands and thrills of life as a West Point cadet.
2014 Youth Scholarship Award Winner Zachary Weidlich
Electronic Security Association of Florida announced the winners of the 2014 ESA of Florida Youth Scholarship Award. The winners stood out among some of the brightest and most talented children of law enforcement officers and fire fighters from all across Florida. There are three scholarships in the following amounts: 1st Place – $2,500; 2nd Place – $1,000; 3rd Place – $500
First Place – Zachary Weidlich, son of Jason Weidlich, Captain with the Pensacola Fire Department. Zachary attended Aletheia Christrian Academy where he graduated at the top of his class. Zachary’s essay about the role his father had in his life touched on his character. Zachary wrote, “Good character is not learned by hearing; rather, it is acquired by example. Having a dad who is a firefighter has had a defining role in the shaping of my life. For the entirety of my life, my dad has been the type of man who leads by example. He consistently shows initiative to make his department, his community, and his family better by showing unfaltering initiative, sacrifice and commitment.
Zachary was also heavily involved many extra-curricular activities such as cross country track, pianist for weekly school chapels and special events, co-leader of bible studies, and volunteering in many church and community services.

2011 Varsity Basketball Team Takes National Championship!!
After a successful 2010-2011 basketball season playing for Aletheia, our varsity boys took second place in the Panhandle Christian Conference and traveled to Dayton, Tennessee, for the National Competition for Division IV. They won decisive victories and won a spot in the championship game against the odds-on favorites, Hamilton Heights Christian School from Chattanooga, TN. After an incredibly action-packed and fast-paced game, during which the commentators repeatedly expressed admiration and amazement at our boys’ skills, Aletheia and Hamilton Heights were tied and went into overtime. During the four-minute overtime, Aletheia pulled out the win — 98-91!
Several of our players were recognized as All-Tournament players — Kyle Colborn, Ben Everett, Kevin Wiggins, and J.D. Lowery. Josh Jones was awarded the game’s Most Valuable Offensive Player, and Patrick Everett was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player!
All of our players performed well, and we are so proud of them! What a legacy to leave for our Aletheia Lions!
