Easter means different things to different people. For some it’s about candy and toys. For others, it’s about family get-togethers and represents the comfort and warmth of home. To still others, Easter Sunday is just another day… God is not…
Like a lot of stories, the Easter story is dramatic. Like a lot of dramatic stories, it’s true. And like a lot of true stories it involves betrayal and death. But unlike any other story it ends – or really…

What Others Are Saying
Our children are thriving, they are being prepared for life and I’ve personally enjoyed the newfound relationships.
The staff, teachers and administration are committed to educating my child. The proof is visible, measurable and demonstrable each and every day. It’s amazing and beyond our biggest hopes. God is great!
Our daughter is on the shy end, and witnessing how the teachers (not just the Kindergarten teacher) and the administration went out of their way to welcome our daughter and make sure she thrived was overwhelming. They keep the class sizes small and you can see the benefit in the individual attention. Our daughter is grown leaps and bounds in not only her writing, reading, and math, but also in her character and attitude.
We also have loved the classical approach and the integration of faith, which mesh so well. Finally, we had a rough year financially and the school worked with us to make the finances work. We have been very grateful how Arma Dei Academy has journeyed with our family.
Our decision to send our daughter to Arma Dei was the right one! I was hesitant to send her to a Christian school because I didn’t want her experience to be “religious.” Upon visiting an open house, I had so much peace and she was enrolled.
The highlights of our experience with Arma Dei Academy are:
Relationships: The Kindie moms have quickly become some of my most treasured friends. They have supported me through an illness with my baby who was hospitalized over the holidays. They flooded our home with food, gifts and offers to help, visited us in the hospital and took care of our family. The school staff, administration and other families (we hadn’t even met) also supported us in prayer and support! Our awesome moms are always texting each other throughout the week, one mom will be running late and send out a text and within 2 seconds, three moms have said…..”I’ll wait here with your child til you get here.” It really is incredible. I appreciate the small community of like-minded families.
Character: Within the first couple weeks of school, my daughter came home talking to me about Attentiveness, then it was Obedience, Truthfulness, Generosity….etc. She sings songs about all the character qualities she has learned in school. It’s fun to her and helps me to coach her. I was so thrilled to have my daughter not just taught academically, but taught with the “whole person” in mind. She also deeply loves Jesus and prays for her school and friends. Any concerns I have had that her experience would be “religious” are gone.
Academics: There’s so much to say here, but the proof is in the development. My 5 year old 1. Reads like a champ 2. Recognizes famous paintings 3. Has been adding and subtracting double digits for months and started 1st grade math a couple weeks ago. 4. She writes her name in cursive!!! 5. Writes notes all the time and no longer reverses letters 6.Has vastly increased her vocabulary and loves homework! I also love that my husband and I get to pop in and have lunch with the kindergartners. They are like a little Italian family. Whoever talks the loudest and fastest gets heard. They are hilarious and so much fun! I also enjoy the opportunities we’ve had to serve the community over Christmas and also gather with the families for events like our Thanksgiving dinner, Dad’s cookout, School picnic, movie night and Valentine’s breakfast. The school offers a variety of opportunities to “do school” with your children and be a part of the community as a whole. I love talking about Arma Dei to our friends and community because it has been such a big part of our lives this past year.
