The Humanist Academy
We cultivate the human spirit...
FIND A CALLING, CHANGE THE WORLD!
Because children are far more capable than we can ever imagine...
Our mission is to inspire everyone who enters our doors to find a calling that will change the world.
We cultivate the human spirit by providing self-paced, experiential learning in a learner-driven and value-based environment, guided by strong personal relationships with learners and families.
We believe in the infinite potential that lies within all human beings.
A humanist is committed to human development, values, welfare, and integrity.
We believe every child is a genius with gifts that can change the world in a profound way.
We believe in a closely connected family of lifelong learners.
We believe in learning by knowing, learning by doing and learning by being.
We believe in economic, religious, and political freedom.
True education should nurture a commitment to human values including: integrity, inquiry, empathy, gratitude, diligence, sincerity, honesty, humility and respect
Socratic Discussions and self paced challenges equip children to be independent lifelong learners.
The Hero’s Journey, relational covenants and real world consequences transform difficult decisions into virtuous habits.
Hands-on Quests for Science, Entrepreneurship and the Arts prepare children for Apprenticeships and real world challenges.
