Dear Friend of Genesis Classical Academy:
Christmas greetings from the Board, staff, students, and families of Genesis Classical Academy. What a different world we live in since we wrote last year!
And yet, at Genesis Classical Academy, we have received many blessings in the midst of this most difficult year: a beautiful campus on five acres, the addition of 9th grade, completing our first quarter fully in-person and on-site, highly-qualified new staff, our own hot lunch program, an expanded music program, and a developing athletic program. And 91 beautiful students.
With the blessings have come new challenges. Owning our own building adds additional expenses, and as our enrollment increases, our scholarship program is vital to carrying out our goal of turning no child away for financial reasons.
Jeremiah 12:5 – “If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?
Jeremiah 12:5 is our theme verse this year. God warns Jeremiah that, if he thinks the times are tough now, how will he keep up in the days ahead. And if Jeremiah can’t navigate where it is safe, how will he manage where it is dangerous? At Genesis, we take this challenge to heart. We know that preparing students for the world today is not good enough. We must be preparing them for the world to come. It is fun to watch the Genesis students who started in fourth grade become high-schoolers this year. Their thoughts, actions, and discussions reflect wisdom, a spiritual understanding, and education beyond their years. But in just three years, they will graduate, and we hope and pray that these students, who have been in training to “run with horses,” will be leaders.Read more
