"Cultivating the Extraordinary"
Adolesco Preparatory Academy is a distinctly Christian community, promoting meaningful parent-child relationships and rigorous education, to increase wisdom, truth, and excellence for students who will transform their community for the glory of God.
We are an emerging Classical University-Model® school located in Hammond, Louisiana. Our school currently offers enrollment to PreK through 9th-grade students, with plans to add 10th grade for the 2024-2025 school year.
God set a burning desire on the hearts of two moms in the Fall of 2019 to found Adolesco Preparatory Academy. Of Latin origin, adolesco means to become established or strong; to grow up, mature, or reach adulthood. The name is appropriate, as we are creating somewhat of a greenhouse where children can grow and mature rather than a sterile bubble that lacks life. Adolesco Prep is not just a school but a strong Christ-centered community of like-minded families who desire to invest in their children in a unique way. Adolesco Prep's schedule provides opportunities for more family time to impart values and beliefs and more time for extracurricular activities and other interests.
Our research-based curriculum fosters a love for learning and a college preparatory education. Our vision is to develop Christlike leaders through the union of academic excellence and a Biblical worldview. We strive to that vision by providing a distinctly Christian community, promoting meaningful parent-child relationships and rigorous education, to increase wisdom, truth, and excellence for students who will transform their community for the glory of God.
Adolesco Preparatory Academy is a member of NAUMS, Inc. Under guided instruction, we plan to be a certified University-Model® school and achieve accreditation by Cognia, formerly AdvanceED.
"The immediate goal of the University-Model® educational system is quality, cost-effective, college-preparatory education accomplished in a way that gives parents more time for imparting the faith and values they hold precious. The ultimate goal is that of producing wholesome, competent men and women of character who make a positive difference for Christ in the next generation."
