We believe all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are found in Christ Jesus (Col. 2:3). As a result, we are building a culture where students are free to explore these treasures and cultivate their own personal faith.
We believe the learning experience is much richer when the teacher (called a “Guide”) offers insightful questions and facilitates hands-on learning. Guides use the Socratic method, always responding to students’ questions with new questions.
Beginning in middle school, our students will obtain apprenticeships in a field about which they are passionate. They will intern with various professionals such as doctors, entrepreneurs, bakers, plumbers, attorneys, and graphic designers in order to gain real-world skills and learn at the feet of a master.
We believe children learn best by doing. Whether it’s launching a startup business, creating a tidepool habitat, playing a musical instrument, painting a mural, or programming a robot, students have opportunities to build real-life skills.
Our students take ownership of their education and their peer relationships by agreeing together on rules of conduct, budgeting their own time, and working amongst themselves to solve problems. They learn to think independently, take responsibility, and embrace challenges.
Using the incredible eLearning tools now available, we are able to provide the rigor needed for learning math, vocabulary, spelling, and grammar in about 90 minutes each day, while freeing up the rest of the day for engaging, project-based, collaborative learning.
Journey Academy is education like you’ve never seen before. It’s a place where students discover their unique abilities with which they can impact the world for Christ.
