School Notes

  • Restoration Academy began in 1988 by Dr. Anthony Gordon. 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.
