Journey Academy

Helping Families to Reimagine Education

Company Information

What makes Journey Academy different?

1. Christ-Centered

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.

2. Learning by Doing

We believe children learn best by doing. Whether it’s launching a startup business, creating a tidepool habitat, playing a musical instrument, painting a mosaic, or programming a robot, students have opportunities to build real-life skills.

3. Guides, not Lecturers

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.

4. Learner-Driven

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.

5. Internships

Beginning in middle school, our students will obtain apprenticeships in a field about which they are passionate. They will intern with doctors, entrepreneur bakers, plumbers, attorneys, and graphic designers in order to gain real-world skills and learn at the feet of a master.

6. Technology

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.
