    Construction Update

    From early morning to late afternoon, bulldozers, motor graders, excavators, and dump trucks move purposefully across the Academy campus. To be sure, Bouma has made great progress. Of late, they have planted an assortment of aspens, maples and dogwoods that now line the parking lot, and have laid fresh, natural sod, as well. On the south side of campus, Bouma continues the grading process, which will ensure proper, sustainable runoff and drainage. Bouma’s thoughtful construction process mirrors the Academy’s dedication to local environmental and safety compliance, and lays the foundations for new, exciting developments for our school.

    Spanish I: Introduction of the Modern Language Track

    “Donde hay gana, hay maña” is a well-known proverb in the Spanish-speaking community. It most closely resembles the English saying: where there’s a will, there’s a way. To Mr. Gildersleeve, this proverb is particularly befitting for language acquisition. “To learn a language – to truly gain fluency,” he asserts, “it’s important you learn to love the language, first.”

    Mr. Gildersleeve, new to JH Classical Academy this year, teaches Spanish I to the 11th grade. In Spanish I, students learn the foundations of
    speaking, listening, and writing in Spanish. They’re encouraged, too, to embrace Spanish’s direct application in the world around them.
