LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

THE BOND LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

Program temporarily on-hold: Contact BOND if you have a student or are an educator interested in discussing the future of BOND Leadership Academy.

Where boys become men and men become leaders

A private, grades 1-12 school for boys that emphasizes a strong belief in God, critical life skills, initiative and creativity for a lifetime of success. We offer a mixture of in-class study and satellite (off campus) classes.

Today’s education system is largely focused on imparting specific knowledge to students so that they can hopefully survive in the world, and possibly get a job in the future. In contrast, The BOND Leadership Academy prepares students to think for themselves.

They are taught not only how to get a job, but also taught how to create a job, or a business, or an independent trade. Our students are also taught life skills, to help them not just survive, but thrive in our ever-challenging world.

COURSE OVERVIEW:

Our core courses of study are: Mathematics, English/Language Arts, Science and Social Science/History. We also offer Fine Arts, Health and Physical Education. In addition, we offer satellite courses and special classes, which are now available to homeschoolers too.

MATHEMATICS

  • A special emphasis on the conceptual understanding of problems, as well as providing students a solid foundation, so that they will have an easier time with more complex forms of math
  • Examples of foundational math are: fractions, decimals, long division, and critical thinking problems.
  • Frequent mental math speed drills to ensure students’ brains are fully engaged on a daily basis.

ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS

  • Read texts from a variety of backgrounds (fiction, non-fiction, historical documents, poetry, song lyrics, etc.) that encourage students to think about the world they live in, understand people they read about, and form their own conclusions.
  • Daily lessons give students a solid base in proper grammar in order to develop excellent writing and communication skills.
  • Stimulating writing prompts students to express themselves on a wide variety of topics.
  • Students present classic prose and poetry from memory in front of a crowd, developing poise and presentation skills.
  • In-depth discussions about movies shown in class, as well as texts read in order to stimulate critical thinking skills and foster a student’s ability to form his own opinion.
  • Frequent trips to a special children’s/young adult library so that students can select reading materials.

SCIENCE

  • Emphasis on scientific principles in operation.
  • Student-conducted experiments demonstrating principles of leverage, lift, power, etc.
  • Understanding of natural elements, their purpose and uses.
  • Field trips to view science in the real world.

TESTIMONIALS

At BOND Academy, the teachers are patient. They don’t rush. They make sure we learn first before going on. They don’t teach in a way that’s boring. They make it fun for us so we can learn better. I’m better at math. I used to not like it so much, but now I like it. I’m getting better at grammar too, learning things I didn’t know before. I also like the workshop that teaches us how to cut wood and pipes. Our teacher told us one day we can learn to pour concrete and build houses!
