About LifeWise Academy

The Mission - What We Do

The LifeWise Academy mission is “to positively impact students, schools and communities by providing a Bible-based, character-focused Released Time Religious Instruction (RTRI) program.”

RTRI is a legal program by which religious education is accessible to public school students during the school day allowing them to leave school (with parental permission) to attend off-site classes which are both academic and religious in nature.

The Philosophy - Why We Exist

For The Good Of Students

LifeWise Academy serves students by offering practical Bible-based education for the betterment of students' academics and character. Independent research has documented that students participating in RTRI programs do better academically (GPA) and have fewer behavioral problems than those students who do not participate. We believe all students can benefit from the message of the Bible and take great care to make all instruction relatable and helpful to those without a church or Christian background.

For The Good Of Public Schools

LifeWise Academy serves schools by offering a program which improves students’ academic performance and classroom behavior. Additionally, public schools with a local RTRI program can attract religious families who may opt out of public education for lack of religious instruction. LifeWise Academy is careful in adhering to federal, state and district policies and flexible in coordinating with school officials, remembering that we are serving them, not vice versa.

For The Good Of Communities

LifeWise Academy serves communities through our investment in creating better citizens. We welcome partnership with like-minded individuals and organizations who desire to positively impact rising generations.

The Method - How We Do It

We Keep It Legal

LifeWise Academy is keenly aware of the necessity to keep public and religious institutions separate. We are diligent to adhere to relevant laws and policies, namely the maintenance of a program that is 1-privately funded, 2-off school property and 3-including only students with parental permission.

We Keep It Simple

LifeWise Academy focuses on the central messages of the Bible. We avoid getting bogged down in the finer points of religious doctrine. Instead, we focus on the most foundational themes that speak to the issues common to all people.

We Keep It Practical

LifeWise Academy seeks to create real and lasting change for students, schools, and communities so we continually look for ways to make instruction not only conceptual, but also actionable.
