Protect Young Eyes - The Dangers of Technology
It is vital to the hearts, minds, and souls of our children that we acknowledge the growing influence of technology in our homes, whether they are 2, 6, 8, 16, or older. We encourage every family to watch the video below from Doug Crawford, COO of Protect Young Eyes, to learn more about the Digital Culture of Kids and how we can partner together to create a safer digital environment. Parents will learn the benefits of creating digital trust, discover helpful software tools, and ultimately gain greater confidence to lead their families in the digital age. Watch Video
OneFamily serves families by providing parents with practical tools to improve their marriages and create healthy, thriving families – one family at a time. Learn more about the OneFamily ministry here.
Lamplighter - Online Book Club
Stories help define the moral compass of our children. In a culture sedated by images that darken the imagination and deaden discernment, Lamplighter publishes literature that is lighting a fire for an awakening of godly character, bravery, integrity, faith, and respect for others. Each story is distinctly Christian, infused with gripping accounts of heroism, sacrifice, humility, perseverance, and hope; stories that compel children of all ages to know God intimately, love Him passionately, and enjoy Him infinitely. We are excited for an opportunity to engage the imaginations and stir the hearts of our families through The Lamplighter online catalog. The catalog is updated monthly to highlight a different theme with Lamplighter titles that help build Christ-like character, one story at a time. Learn more about the Lamplighter Online Book Club.

Classical Christian Education
At Arma Dei Academy we aim to develop a love of lifelong learning amongst students and parents alike. To foster a deeper understanding and love for classical Christian education, please see the resources below.
- An Introduction to Classical Christian Education – A Guide for Parents by Dr. Christopher A. Perrin.
- The Lost Tools of Learning by Dorthy Sayers

- Understanding the Classical and Christian Difference
The mission of ACCS is to promote, establish and equip schools committed to a classical approach to education with a Biblically-based Christian worldview. Learn More »
The Classical Difference is published by the Association of Classical & Christian Schools (ACCS) on behalf of member schools to educate and inspire parents and supporters on the benefits of classical Christian education. Arma Dei Academy families receive the magazine four times a year (Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall).
At Arma Dei Academy we aim to graduate students who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in light of the Scriptures; and who do so in joyful submission to God.
Over the past eight years we have successfully prepared and launched graduates into their high school and college years, where they are actively becoming intelligent and thoughtful leaders, continuing their pursuit of a purposeful life marked by Truth.
Not only have we witnessed the fruit of a classical Christian education first-hand amongst our students, but the research confirms what history has repeatedly demonstrated: classical Christian education can influence the course of a home, a community, or a nation.
The Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS) has released “Good Soil – 7 Comparative Profiles of ACCS Alumni”, a comparative study of 24-42 year old alumni from public, secular private, Catholic, evangelical Christian, religious homeschool, and ACCS schools, on topics ranging from life-choices, preparation, attitudes, values, opinions, and practices.
We invite you to set aside some time to review this remarkable testimony of classical Christian education, so that you may be encouraged by the investment and sacrifice you are making today.
