The Matthew Road Academy offers educational courses for non-traditionally educated students. It is operated as a non-profit ministry to the families in our community. The purpose of Matthew Road Academy is to assist parents in providing education and development for each student enrolled. Our goal is to encourage student’s personal development through Jesus Christ and academic rigor.
Modeled after the modern university, students can choose one or many courses which meet their needs or interests.
Courses are held one or two days a week, homework is assigned and graded, and exams will be given each semester for middle and secondary students. This is an academic environment where your student can thrive and grow.
The Academy operates as a full year program, consisting of two 16 week semesters. Due to the academic nature of the courses, new students cannot enroll once class begins and therefore, all families are contracted for the full year. We seek families who are committed to a full year program and upon registering, each family commits to both semesters. Matthew Road Academy is a partnership with parents in the education of the student. We come along side the family to equip the student with the knowledge and discipline needed for future college endeavors.
In order to fulfill our desire to provide excellence in Christian education, it is necessary to partner with families that share our theological and philosophical beliefs. This is necessary, not only for the fulfillment of each individual student, but for the academy at large. We are not educating children, but rather partnering with families in their education of their children. As such, there is a great deal of responsibility on behalf of any family entering into an educational relationship with Matthew Road Academy.
The courses are designed to be a working partnership between the Academy and the parents in helping to educate students. The Academy covenants with parents to provide structure, syllabi, instruction, assignments, exams, grades and academic feedback. The parent covenants with Matthew Road Academy to track their own child’s progress, monitor their own child’s completion of projects, evaluate their own child’s academic growth, and guide their own child’s work.
In this covenantal relationship, we seek for consistent standards of behavior with the home, the church, and the Academy for the benefit of each student as we seek to make disciples together. Therefore, it is necessary that any family involved in the Academy maintain a relationship with a local church for the mutual building up of the child and the church for spiritual maturity.
MRA considers staff placement a top priority. All staff are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and live in a manner accordingly. We specifically hire teachers who have a love for students and a passion for teaching, not those just seeking an income. Our priority is a high standard of education, as well as to display the love of Jesus Christ to each and every student.
- Teachers have experience teaching in a classroom.
- Many are degreed and/or certified in their subject.
- MRA’s staff is background checked and CPR certified.
