ADVERTORIAL / ST. GEORGE — Grade school is arguably the most impressionable time in a child’s life. While education obtained in public school may work for some, other children blossom under a more personalized curriculum.
Watch the video above for a peek into Liberty Youth Academy.
Liberty Youth Academy is an LDS faith-based leadership academy aimed at helping each child realize their potential.
“We really try to individualize and tailor the curriculum to the children,” Stephanie Dale, administrator and teacher at Liberty Youth Academy, said. “We celebrate their strengths, give them tools for their weaknesses, and because the pressure to perform is off, they rise quickly.”
Student classes are composed of preschool, kindergarten through third grade, and fourth grade through eighth grade.
Liberty is partnering with Gathering Families to add history, literature, music appreciation, science and art classes for high school aged students in the fall. Classes are open to homeschooled children and homeschool support co-op is available.
“I think that it’s important for the kids to interact with each other at the different ages,” Littia Sellers, a K-third grade teacher at Liberty, said. “There isn’t any bullying, they support each other.”
Holly Baker, one of many students at Liberty who transitioned there from public school, said it made a world of difference for her personal growth and acceptance.
“The biggest difference between Liberty and public school is that (at) public school … I did not feel loved, and I didn’t feel like anyone wanted me to be there, I was bullied,” Baker said. “But here, I feel like they want me to be here, and I do feel loved.”
The school is now taking enrollments for a summer program called “I Love America Camp” as well as for its fall 2015-2016 semester enrollment. Call 435-668-4804 to schedule a tour or to check availability
