Promise Academy provides a Christ-centered approach to a classical education where every student is valued, well-supported and poised for excellence.
Everything we do is based on ...
Personhood of Every Student
We believe students learn best in an environment where they are known and loved. This “knowing” is not related to good behavior or bad behavior, but delighting in a child because he is made in the image of God.
Pursuit of Knowledge
We believe students will rise to our expectations in habits of work, deep thought, and expression. This only happens when we spread a feast of subjects before them, not a restrictive diet of math and reading. We do not teach for tests, but for preparation for the next phase of education and a full life.
The end goal of this education is not good grades, but great men! When students can see how much they have been loved by God, when they come to learn about the world he created, they can step into the world and advocate for kindness, justice, and love. Our heart is that not only will the student experience this change, but so will their family, society, and the world.
So that our boys will grow into men who...
We believe knowing the love of God, and loving him in return is the highest end of man. There is no greater good for the world, the community, or the family than a man who loves God with all of his heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Discern the truth
We believe that students who have been exposed to critical thinking, analysis, debate, philosophy, and the habit of deep thought will produce men who can contribute to the academic world of knowledge. In addition, because they are able to see past flaws in argumentation and research, they will be influencers in thought, politics, business, and media.
Change their communities
Since these men have received such gifts from God, it is our prayer that they will overflow with gratitude and love onto those in the community. These men will not only have a sense of purpose for themselves, but for the generation that follows.
