A Working Farm

Students will have responsibilities on the school farm.

The Academy will have a sustainable, productive farm where students can learn firsthand how to grow food and care for animals. The farm will have a few milk cows, chickens, and other animals as will be needed to promote a healthy campus culture and student learning.

Intellectual formation in the classroom will be complemented by tasks that apply knowledge across subjects and teach practical skills and self-sufficiency. Working on the farm will reinforce learning through hands-on experiences.


Students will learn how to be good stewards of God’s creation.

We will use the beautiful, natural environment surrounding the campus to teach students about ecosystems and related themes such as forest management and maintaining clean water in our communities.

Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown. Give me faith to leave old ways and break fresh ground with You. Christ of mysteries, I trust You to be stronger than each storm within me…Tune my spirit to the music of heaven, and somehow, make my obedience count for You. AMEN.
