School Administrator

Thank you for your interest in South Merrimack Christian Academy. We are a Christ-centered school with a passion for excellence both in and out of the classroom. Since the beginning in 1996, it has been and continues to be our goal to infuse the Word of God into every student who is entrusted to our care. It is a sacred trust.


It is our desire that our website will give you the information that you are seeking concerning our mission, philosophy and day-to-day operation of our school.


We are committed to partner with each family to help train their children to know God’s Word and encourage them to faithfully interact and engage their generation for Christ.


Although our website is helpful in giving relevant information about our school, we encourage you to schedule a visit to our campus to experience the SMCA community. See you soon!

About the Administrator: 

Prior to coming to South Merrimack Christian Academy as the school administrator, Ken Amador was the Head of School at West Bay Christian Academy in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Before that, he was a professor of New Testament studies at Boston Baptist College and spent twenty-one years as a chaplain in the United States Navy until he retired from the reserves in 2020. He has completed his Master of Arts in Biblical Studies and Master of Divinity degrees from Baptist Bible College & Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, and studies toward his doctorate in Christian Leadership from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He has two grown children, Trevor and Mikenna, and has been married to his beautiful wife, Gwendolyn, for 35 years.


By Christian Education, we refer to the teaching of basic Christian truths - the fact that God exists and is the Creator, that He is the God of love, and that He wants to be our personal friend and savior through His son, Jesus.  We teach these truths through daily Bible classes and weekly chapel services. 

In addition, our entire program is taught in an atmosphere acknowledging the existence, power, and love of God.

It is our purpose to provide our students with textbooks that are of the highest quality.  

The textbooks that best fit our criteria are those from A Beka Book and Bob Jones publishers.  

The students are held accountable to a high standard of performance in each of their classes.
