Meet Mackenzi

mackenziMackenzi, a seventh grader, started here as a Kindergartener, a tiny acorn ready for the nurturing soil of Logos Academy. Her family is from Mexico, but Mackenzi was born in York and resides in our city. She came to Logos, following her older brother and sister, to become saturated in the excellent education rooted in Christ, the culturally diverse environment, and community-minded values, to achieve her God-gicen potential. She is growing, blossoming, and establishing roots that will ensure her success and ability to impact the world in a positive way.

Mackenzi is part of the Logos Academy Cross Country team and cherishes the friendships she has made with fellow students, as well as the connections and interactions from the teachers who have “watered” her. Mackenzie is proud to say that she is part of a big, happy family in Logos Academy! She is looking forward to graduating as an “Oak of Righteousness, a planting of the Lord, for the display of His splendor.” (Logos Academy Declaration) 

“Thank you God, thank you Logos” ~ Mackenzi

Back-to-school time has arrived! Students are putting on their new uniforms and zipping up their backpacks. It’s a time of new beginnings and high hopes. Logos Academy is a special place. Dreams are planted, futures are built, and children are being prepared to be all that God has created them to be. I’d like to ask you to invest in that as this school year begins.

Grounded in the love of Christ, we embrace a whole-child approach, investing in the academic, spiritual, and cultural flourishing of our students. We are committed to strong parent partnerships, small class sizes, and are excited to see our students engaging in the good things happening in our city. This vibrant mix creates a path of opportunity like no other educational choice in York. However, every child faces challenges, both in school and life. To make it possible for our diverse group of students to be in our classrooms, they need champions. They need champions to encourage them, cheer them on, and help provide them scholarships.

  • Would you consider being a Logos Champion and supporting a student for a day with your gift of $45?
  • Would you consider being a champion for a week with a gift of $225 to cover a student’s education at Logos?
  • What if every locker at Logos became a place of daily encouragement, where students are reminded that champions are rooting for them and supporting them? Would you consider giving $1,000 to benefit a student’s scholarship and provide a word of encouragement on a student’s locker?

Student Blogger: Aria – 2016 Team Project Week

Every year, Logos Academy hosts its annual Team Project Week for students grades 6-12. This time around, the theme for the big week was political: a simulation of this year’s presidential election campaigns. We were grouped up – six campaign teams, two newspaper teams, a press team, and a TV and media team – and sent off to work.

One student on each campaign team had a particularly important job: they had to play the role of their assigned candidate. Perhaps the most interesting part of this competition was the candidates chosen. The six teams were assigned the roles of Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, Republicans Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Ben Carson, and last but certainly not least, Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

I was on team Stein, assigned with the task of being Jill Stein. We all headed off to begin our project, being told to organize our groups and be ready for a press conference by the end of the school day – no pressure! Needless to say, our first task was to answer a question that we would hear a lot over the next week, “Who is Jill Stein?” The answer was surprising, and to some of us, surprisingly impressive. Nevertheless, we got to work reading up on our mysterious, unpopular candidate.

Throughout the week, we were scheduled to attend at least one press conference daily, and other times we were required to head down to the auditorium and listen to a guest speak. The guests ranged from former member of state Congress, to reporter, to personal relations manager for the mayor of York. Along with all of this, we had to present our candidates to lower school students, create our own campaign posters and commercials, schedule interviews with the press, and even attend a “televised” debate.

Over all, although this was only my second project week, I had a lot of fun. I was admittedly skeptical when it was announced, but I ended up enjoying it very much. Over the week I probably learned more about voting and campaigning than I did in 9th grade civics class- and it was much more enjoyable! I had a great time playing the roll of Jill Stein throughout the week, and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the students on my campaign team (grades 6-12). It was a great experience, and I can’t wait to see what we’re doing next year!

Meet Graham

GrahamGraham came to Logos Academy in 7th grade after tumultuous years at both suburban private and public schools. Although his IQ was very high, he struggled to learn in these educational settings, especially when it came to math. His teacher at Logos worked with him, encouraged him, supported and loved him through that challenging 7th grade year. She provided hope and opportunity that ultimately provided Graham with an excellent education. On the last day of school that year, Graham gave her a note thanking her for helping him fight his fear and learn to like math. Now in 11th grade, he has consistent A’s in advanced math, but more importantly, he knows that he can do it. He sees himself as a scholar, eager to learn and and see the beauty in the world. Graham is a photographer and musician and shares those talents with Logos. The Vibrant Learning Community at Logos gave him that gift that he will carry with him.
