why twelfth grade?

Our senior year at The Academy is the culmination and capstone of our entire program of discipleship, the fruit of which can be seen in our Portrait of a Graduate.  To that end, and with students having read over 100 major Western Classics, we offer our senior trip as the final pilgrimage and capstone travel to their Christian education in classics.  This is our final 'impression' upon the wax of their lives as they enter the world beyond in post-secondary education/vocation.

Why england & France?

Our Junior and Senior years are filled with the culmination of Western history both in the rich English history of literature, poetry and theology; the contrast of the French and American revolution, and the significant artistic contributions to Western history that come out of Europe at this time.
