Plantings Academy: A Community of Learning

Plantings Academy: A Community of Learning

"They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord
for the display of His splendor." Isaiah 61:3

An academy of Christian education is established in Marietta. The purpose is to provide a community for families seeking to educate their children toward loving the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength and to recognize and value what is good, true, and beautiful. The community will be following the life-giving philosophy of British educator Charlotte Mason.

Plantings Academy learning emphasizes living books that nourish the mind and develop critical thinking. In our community students cultivate imagination, form good habits, and develop life skills. Most importantly, this is a community where Truth and the love and grace of God are enjoyed each day.
