    Liberty Classical Academy (formerly The Garden School) Photo - In 2017, Liberty Classical Academy's K-3rd classrooms were awarded a science grant from the South Side Conservation District. With this grant, we were able to purchase classroom supplies to teach our children the importance of the life cycles of plants and animals. Our children will also learn the vitality of agriculture and importance of sustainability in the land around us.
