In most minds, a school is an institution where students learn about subject matters like English,
Math, History, and Science under the advisement of teachers and a church is an institution where
people learn about God under the advisement of a pastor. They separate core subject teaching
from Biblical teaching. But that is not how we do things here.
Everything we do at Hartfield Academy is centered around our vision of seeing every student
fulfill their God-given purpose. When you look across our campus, you will see students with
top ACT scores, exceptional athletes, excellent AP scores, and brilliant artists.
But more than that, you will see students being discipled in their spiritual growth and encouraged
to be the person God made them to be. Every day, we partner with families, like yours, to
prepare students academically, emotionally, and spiritually, so that they are ready for the next
stage of their life. Because of these strong partnerships, we are seeing our students graduate with
a passion for learning, a desire to serve those around them, as well as a deep love for the Lord
and an understanding of His Word.
This is also why we intentionally partner with local churches and encouraging our students and
families to be active in a local body of believers. We have seen how a student’s development is
compounded when they are surrounded by teachers who are a Living Curriculum, led by
spiritually active parent, and involved in a local church.
This year, we are celebrating these partnerships through our school year theme: Stronger
Together. Our Leadership Team chose this theme based off Romans 15:5-6 where it says “May
the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward
each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God
and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”.
And that’s really our end goal: bringing glory to God. We just get the exciting job of seeing how
that glory is revealed through the lives of our students when they choose to live out their God-
given purpose. This year, I want to be intentionally about what our partnership looks like, which
is why I have put together a document that explains the Hartfield culture and what it really looks
like when we are working together. We all have a role to play and I hope this document helps us
us refine the way we move forward, collaborate, and celebrate the many victories along the way.
It is going to be a great year!
