“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”

--William Butler Yeats

Mission:

The mission of the Curriculum Department at John Adams Academy is to deliver a world-class Classical Education by facilitating scholar engagement with the greatest books of the Western Tradition. We seek to inspire our scholars to become life-long self-learners who have the ability to identify, understand, seek, and share what is true, noble, and good.  By coupling servant leadership training and core values with our classically based curriculum, John Adams Academy develops scholars who are virtuous leaders in their homes, communities, and country who naturally hunger for oncoming responsibilities and future contributions in society.
