Education for the Hands
When all is said and done, students should not learn merely for the sake of learning. Education should, inevitably, result in action.
A phrase in our mission statement reflects this commitment by stating that the Academy purposes to "teach our students a life of service." Our experience suggests that this is an increasingly counter-cultural message.
We seek to help our students recognize that day-to-day living offers many opportunities to serve and assist others. From the simple act of picking up a piece of paper off the floor to the intense moments spent volunteering in a nursing home, we strive to teach and model a lifestyle that is enthusiastically others-centered.
