University Style Education is an educational style that merges private education with a home school experience. This approach to education is a benefit for elementary through high school students by enhancing the learning experience in a small class environment, with a college-preparatory education, in a Christian setting.
High academic standards are set and while less time is spent in a classroom setting, students work towards achieving a strong work ethic in class and out. A University Style Education setting offers a full load of courses and can be considered a full time school schedule, however it also allows for the flexibility of those seeking part time education for certain subjects.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21
We believe there is no better way to start your day than with the Lord, that is way MRA hosts a Chapel Service the 1st Thursday of every month. On these days we offer an opportunity for families and staff to hear God’s word before school.
Among the classes we offer MRA includes courses specific to Biblical Studies. These courses change from year to year.
From writing to history, MRA has one main theme for all courses, that they support a strengthening of knowledge of our Lord. While not all courses are able to include Biblical Studies, we work hard to include it in all that we are able to.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 All science courses at MRA will support God’s word, and recognize it as Truth.
In addition to academic classes and electives, MRA offers a wide variety of social activities for our students and their families.
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.
