    Cross Country

    As classes have resumed at JH Classical Academy, so have a variety of student activities. One of the athletic extracurricular activities which the Academy currently offers is cross country. The JHCA cross country team is a budding athletic program, which began last year by Mrs. Sarah Walter. Mrs. Walter says that, when she and Coach Lunz discussed beginning a sports program last year, cross country seemed like the best option since “all students need are good tennis shoes.”

    Our Year In Community

    by: Mr. Burton Gildersleeve
    Before the school year began, the teachers huddled together for prayer in an empty dirt lot, not far from where the field house would today stand. It was morning. Construction hadn’t finished; school was to start in three short days. There was much to be done and divine grace was needed.

    On Curriculum, The Great Conversation & Community

    By: Mr. Ian Landis and Mr. Burton Gildersleeve

    In the 
    Art of Teaching, Highet, writing in the year 1950, ruminates on the future impact of television on the classroom. “Through such a medium the possibilities of teaching may be extended over the whole planet, to many different sections of our unhappily divided human race.” Oh, if only Highet could see us now! Perhaps we’re not all unhappy, but we are divided, and certainly have come to know a thing or two about virtual learning; though, of course, we’re happy to communicate through Zoom and not our televisions.

    Virtual PE and Athletics

    By: Coach Lunz

    I think we would all agree: we could use more exercise right about now.
    Plans are in the works for continuing PE with routines at home.  In an effort to keep everyone moving as we learn online, I am producing at-home exercise routines for each class. Please know, of course, that parents are invited to participate in these routines, too.

  • Advancement Update

    We have a number of Advancement initiatives this spring that I would like to share with you.
    Moms Morning Meetings
    Mrs. Friess and I have had a number of small group meetings with moms on Friday mornings. In these meetings, we’ve explored new ways to cultivate community at JH Classical Academy, and together, we’ve discussed how we might attract new families through our admissions events. These conversations have proven invaluable for us. If we have not met with you yet and you would like to meet, please reach out!

  • Lockhart Cattle

    Community Update

    By: Mr. Burton Gildersleeve

    You could hear the roars of youthful excitement from a distance. Cheers of budding glee, intermingled with shouts of surprise and intrigue, rushed down the upper school halls like a herd of charging cattle.
    I had been forewarned. The fourth graders had received an unusually large and grisly package in the mail for their science class. I'm married to their teacher, so news of this kind is easy to come by. "It's from Lockhart Ranch," Mrs. Gildersleeve had stated with buzzing anticipation the night before. "We owe them a big thank you for what might be the best experiment ever."
