Monday Memo – 09.26.2022

Monday Memo


Hello Academy Family and Friends,

Last week, I heard a parent say, “…it was the greatest thing to hear my child’s teacher’s motto for the year be, Our goal in this class is to strive for excellence for the glory of the Lord, not for the perfection of man…” and I couldn’t have asked for a better reminder. The Academy is just such a special place and the love and the life that the students are being guided in are centered on the Lord, their precious souls, and the love for one another. As we go through this week together, may you remember that we are all made in the image of God and may you remember Who you are, and Whose you are. Grace and Peace this week, friends. May our week glorify our incredible God!
