We have eight wonderful students in the academy classroom this year!
Our classroom is a 9th and 10th grade combo class and though we may be small in number, we are doing great things! Mrs. Merwin is the homeroom teacher, teaching most of the classes, with Mrs. Clayton teaching English, Biology and PE.
In every subject area we make a conscience effort to integrate faith into the curriculum. The students are taught how to develop a relationship with Jesus and are encouraged to make a lifelong commitment to living for Him.
The students in this class get along very well and create a family-like atmosphere in which each person feels loved and respected. Each of these young people is serious about setting a good example for the younger students and are truly good role-models.
The students have really enjoyed the events and activities they have participated in this year including:
Outdoor School, Disaster Relief Training at Atlantic Union College, our annual Spiritual Retreat at Camp Lawroweld, and cooking in Home Economics class to name a few.
