Restoration Academy

Tel: (205)785-8805
Restoration Academy was started in 1988 by Dr.
Anthony Gordon.
He founded the school in response to divisive forces such as crime & violence that had ensnared many of the young people at his church and in his community.
He followed God's calling to provide a quality, private education to predominantly lower-income families.
He believed that such an education should be available to more than affluent families.
Restoration Academy exists as a compilation of families, faculty, communities, and churches.
At the core of our school is the Restoration Academy student.
The goal of the school is to meet the academic, spiritual, and social needs of each student at in our school in a Christ-centered environment.
We believe that the school has been called to a unique educational mission to meet the needs of a predominantly urban and at-risk* student body.
We are also called to minister and meet the unique aspects of the Restoration Academy learner.
Outlined below are the core beliefs of the school in regards to our view of our students.
In addition, some of the practices we utilize in meeting the various aspects of the Restoration Academy learner are outlined as well.
