Truth Academy is not a classical based education. The goal of Truth Academy is to provide a well-rounded, Christian-based education that is designed to prepare students for the future. Most of Truth Academy's curriculum is based on A Beka and Bob Jones.

Is Truth Academy accredited?

No. Most colleges accept students from a non-accredited high school (public or private) so long as: 1) the school is in compliance with the school laws of the state in which it is located (Truth Academy is in compliance with the school laws of Missouri); and 2) The prospective college student achieves a certain minimum score on either the ACT or SAT. Truth Academy provides the foundation needed for its students to succeed both in the taking of college entrance exams and in college. Because most colleges do not require a student to attend an accredited high school, and because accreditation can cost thousands of dollars every year, Truth Academy believes it can better allocate its resources to providing quality education for its students.

How much time will I spend teaching at home?

The amount of time you will spend teaching at home varies depending upon each child. Children who are younger will need more parental involvement than older students. Even within the same age group of students, the time each parent will spend working one on one with a child will vary depending upon each child's unique abilities. Regardless of the amount of time required for a parent to spend teaching a child at home, the teachers at Truth Academy are available, both in and out of the classroom, to assist in providing a great educational experience for parents as well as children.
