    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.

In addition to monthly parent training sessions, curriculum night, term presentation, concerts, and science and history projects, the parent book club provides another way for parents to engage in their children’s education and experience the richness of a classical curriculum.

    8th Grade Medieval History Geography Fair

    On Monday February 11th, the 8th grade students presented their research on North African countries. This was the culmination of a geography unit in Ms. Koci's medieval history class. North Africa was the home to one of the greatest Mediterranean cities, Carthage, in modern day Tunisia. In late antiquity, the famous theologian St. Augustine was bishop of Hippo Regius in what is now Algeria. The Muslim invasion of North Africa in the late 7th century is one of the significant events of the early middle ages.
