Logos Academy is sometimes a misunderstood education option for the children and families of York. “Are you a charter school?” is a question we field often. Charter schools receive funding from local school districts, while private schools, like Logos Academy, do not. Our vibrant learning community is supported through donations from business, organizations, and individual supporters. They are our Logos Champions and their support directly leaves an impact in the hearts and minds of our students that then carries home to their families and community.
Our whole-child educational approach is what sets us apart from many other educational options here in the York area. We are intentional about creating a joy and wonder of learning in each student through a Christ-centered, classical education. This begins in Kindergarten with educational tools such as, SuperKids, a phonics-based reading and writing program. The students relate to “friends” they meet through play, reading, and writing exercises. In our Upper School, our students participate in an annual Team Project Week to spark collaboration, interdisciplinary learning, and creative outcomes. This year the theme was film (link to the films) and the films were shown at an all school film festival before a panel of judges who work and play in this area of expertise.
Each year, we are entrusted with tiny acorns (our 36 Kindergarten students) and plant these acorns in the rich soil of Logos Academy. Our 1:9 teacher to student ratio allows for purposeful gardening and harvesting by our teachers and staff. Over the years, we water, we fertilize, and we watch, as they sprout and grow. Then together, we celebrate when these acorns graduate as “plantings of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” (Isaiah 61:3)
Our doors are open on March 4, 2017, from 10am-12pm. Come and meet our teachers and students and families. Bring your questions, there is so much more to learn about Logos Academy!
