Primary Programs:

Our Academy delivers several unique programs: Life Basics, Educational Repair, Study Skills, and Full


Throughout the program, individualized instruction, practical application and physical activities are emphasized. The program is designed to deliver a comprehensive educational program preparing the child for life. Competent, well-educated, physically able - this is an education the child will take with him and use for his entire life.

The Life Basics program consists of a checklist of items (such as "Initiative", "Manners", etc). For each item the student does drills and actual application until he is succeeding better in life on that point.

Through this program the child regains abilities to make the correct decisions in life, reestablishes motivation and purpose in life, improves contribution with the family and groups, gets better at completing what he started, and other points as needed.


Very often a student‟s difficulty in learning subjects stems from a faulty previous education. In Educational Repair, we find the exact reason for the difficulties and correct them.


This step takes the student through high school. He decides on the sequence of study in accordance with his goals.

ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS: these include art ( painting & drawing),crafts,music,theater & philosophy.

Recreational programs include hiking,camping,archery,skiing,basketball,& skateboarding.
