Martin Luther King Jr. wrote this in the "The Purpose of Education," a 1947 article for Morehouse College's student newspaper.

75 years later, this statement is truer now than ever.
We are not here to merely fill our students with facts, numbers, and data.
We're here to build character.
To empower and educate children who will encourage change and challenge the norm.

Thank you for Dr. King for all you've done for our world and for continuing to inspire us to this day. โค๏ธ

It's Fun Fact Friday! ๐Ÿ’ก

Hot springs form when water deep below the Earthโ€™s surface is heated by magma, and rises to the Earthโ€™s surface.

Recently, scientists identified microscopic organisms known as archaea living deep within a hot spring here in Idaho.

The scientists found that these organisms are able to survive without access to oxygen or carbon, and have given reason to believe organisms can live in conditions that are typically thought of as hostile to life on other planets and moons!

Did you know that our home state of Idaho has over 100 soakable hot springs within it's state borders?!
What a fun way to relax and observe ecology at the same time!

What's a Quinzee?! โ˜ƒ๏ธ

Our CDA Campus recently shoveled enough snow to make a snow mound almost 5 feet high and over 8 feet long!

We allowed it to compact itself overnight, and the following day we tunneled into it to make what is called a Quinzee, or a snow cave built from shoveled snow.

A true snow cave is dug into a natural snowdrift. Our Quinzee is large enough inside to sleep 2 adults!

Imagine not only having your kids happy to go to school on Friday ... but THRILLED TO GO EVERY SINGLE DAY! ๐Ÿคฉ

It's amazing to see the changes in our Guardians.
The kids are happy.
The parents are happy.
And that makes us pretty happy too.

Our Homesteaders learn using old world wisdom to bring life forth from the earth, abundant gardens, thriving herds that feed their village. Our kiddos will study how to utilize each season in its turn and to care for and properly tend the earth that provides for them. ๐ŸŒพ

Maybe someday they'll grow up to be a farmer or rancher caring for their own land and family.
Maybe they'll end up being one of the thousands of commercial farmers feeding our nation.

No matter the number of acres they own, we guarantee they'll be still using skills learned right here at The Guardians Academy.

Filling brains with the right answers is unlikely to spark the passion that will drive students to deep understanding.๐Ÿค“

Knowing the right answers is helpful in some professional fields.
However, a more dynamic education teaches students by evoking thoughts and ideas through questions

Here at the Guardians Academy, we donโ€™t hope that our students know whether the answer is A, B, or C on an exam.
With the trades that influence our approach to education, learning happens through kindling the flame within every student๐Ÿ”ฅ

Did you know that snow can help keep you warm? โ„๏ธ

Since fresh, compacted snow is approximately 90 to 95 percent trapped air, it's a great insulator. This is the reason why many animals burrow deep into the snow during winter in order to hibernate. It's also the reason that igloos, that use only body heat to warm them, can be 100 degrees warmer inside than outside!

This time of year is a time filled with favorite family traditions. Many of which have been passed down from generation to generation, so as to never be forgotten.

Here at The Guardians Academy, we know a thing or two about that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tell us, what are some of your favorite traditions you enjoy?

Thank you for trusting us with your kids.
Thank you for all of the support and feedback we've received over these past two years.

Tell us, what's your favorite winter activity?!
Soaking in hot springs?
Hitting the slopes?
Snowshoeing?
Snowmobling?
Tubing and sledding with the neighborhood kids?

Whatever it is, we hope you're having an amazing first week of Winter Break!

Conversations > Lectures.๐Ÿ’ญ

When a child is engaged in a subject, it gets them to think about the topic, not just learn enough to pass a test.

That's the difference between raising students vs. life-long learners.

Think about that for a second.

Do you feel guilty for having a rest day?
Does your mind still race with things on the to-do list when you're trying to enjoy a moment of peace?

It's time break the cycle.

It's time to raise our children to be hard workers, but to find that fine line between exhaustion and success.

12/10/2021

Our TGA Coeur d'Alene kiddos recently learned the proper techniques for building fires.๐Ÿ”ฅ

Everything from chopping wood, kindling gathering, assembly, and lighting.

When taught to use tools correctly and with respect (not fear), a child learns to use them with confidence. A skill that will last a lifetime!
