From Mr. Rutherford
It's going to be a great school year!
I am looking forward to welcoming back our returning families and all new students and parents. We have been busy getting ready for the start of the new year.
This year welcomes our first high school class, as well as many new teachers and staff, including Mrs. McKay, Mr. Schaffer, Dr. Parlin, Mr. Ritter, Mrs. Smith, and Mrs. Richards. We are also pleased to introduce the house system, featuring three houses: House of Saul of Tarsus, Washington House, and Chesterton House. The houses will serve to foster friendship and loyalty, develop leadership skills, promote competition, and offer intramural athletics.
From new carpeting, a fence, and remodeled offices to more than 25 new students, new teachers, and new grades, rest assured that your school is continuing to grow and develop in a thoughtful manner, always keeping our mission at the forefront: the cultivation of knowledge and virtue. We have ambitious goals and big dreams for the Academy, and we are pleased and excited that you will be with us to share in the adventure.
Ben Rutherford, Headmaster
