School Notes:

The mission of Liahona Preparatory Academy is to assist parents in educating their children in the fundamentals of the arts, letters and sciences while integrating the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We strive to provide a challenging academic education by infusing secular knowledge into LDS doctrine and values in order that students might understand ALL knowledge in the context of the eternal.

Liahona's Distance Education Program is the largest LDS-based Junior High and High School distance program in the nation. Students enjoy our motivational teachers and associating with other LDS home-educated students coast to coast. Parents appreciate that the program is user-friendly, flexible and may be taken for credit.

The drama department recently won the largest high-school championship in the nation for both our junior high and high school!

Liahona is an LDS based education which allows teachers to teach the true stories of our founding fathers, for example. Students from LPA have consistently higher ACT and AP scores. There is a smaller student body at the school which allows kids much more individual attention from teachers. They have a strict dress code, not uniforms, which stresses adherence to LDS standards as well as kindness and respect for students and faculty, so they do not have problems with bullying and clicks like public schools. It will never be a common core school! They have programs like Drama, Sports, Service Trips, Student Government, Electives, and even Concurrent Enrollment AdvancEd Program to earn college credit! Classes are filmed and can be watched online by students at their convenience. Distance Education is also an option for families that live too far away from the school but still want to ''attend'' through watching classes online. Liahona has a 4 day school week to allow students to do homework or more family time. They have a special Youth Conference and a service trip each year. The environment at the school is fabulous and my kids absolutely love it! It is the best school ever!

We love the education our son has received at Liahona Prep. The teachers care so much for the students. The learning environment is supportive and safe. The class size has been perfect for the advance learning we were seeking. He has had an opportunity to participate in drama and sports and take a variety of elective classes.
