America’s history and heritage–all from a Biblical worldview, consistent with this faith-based plate and the intent of it purchasers.. Leaders from all areas of communications, politics, legislative and other fields mentor students through the process, sharing their experience and wisdom. The Patriot Academy program is personally overseen and run by two former legislators.

The educational program provides a special integrated educational experience with individual instruction on subjects useful to the student’s future education and professional career while engaging them in activities which improve and develop their individual capabilities. This training is extremely beneficial to the common good of the wider community.
