In 2021, True North Academy in Celebration, FL ( near Orlando) joined the FACE Leading Schools Program, opening their doors for the first time this past September. True North is a Principle Approach hybrid school, which features in-school classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays with parent led-homeschooling on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Current enrollment stands at 17 students across grades 1-8. Under consideration for next year is adding a kindergarten and grades 9 and 10.
Already, big things are happening at True North Academy as witnessed by Leading Schools Program director Dr. Mike Myers on his recent visit to the academy. On Monday evening, the school hosted an open house for current and prospective families. The atmosphere was electric with excitement as the turnout surpassed expectations. After the classroom portion of the open house, participants gathered to hear a recap of the school’s launch and the plan for the next school year by co-founders Roxana Dickerson and Freddi Wood. Mike Myers also offered encouragement and an overview of Principle Approach education, along with a Q&A session.
The classroom visit in late November revealed abundant evidence of a growing and flourishing school. Creative and prepared teachers engaged students in the discussion and recording of sound Biblically-based learning. The bright and cheerful classrooms were adorned with essential Principle Approach elements, including Christian history timelines.
Congratulations to the faculty, staff, and parents of True North Academy for an outstanding first semester and a very bright future!
