"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 will accommodate K3 through 6th grade families in the Southeast Region of Louisiana, with plans to add subsequent grades each 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."

Author, Character Driven College Preparation
Because God created, sustains and will consummate all things through His Son, Jesus Christ, we believe that facts, whether mathematical, historical, scientific, or otherwise, can only represent truth if they are taught in the context of a Christian worldview.
A University-Model® school is a blend of the most positive aspects from traditional public and private schools as well as home schools, to give elementary through high school students a highly successful, college-preparatory education, set in a Christian environment.
The classical method of education is a three-stage approach to instruction with the goal of producing graduates who have mastered the art of learning so that they may skillfully acquire and apply knowledge, reason critically, and articulate persuasively.
