Petra Academy holds all learners to a high standard of academic growth by sincere curricular goals, outstanding teachers, effective programs, a warm and engaging school community, and most of all a shared humilty in Christ. Classical Christian education is discipline without pressure. If you are willing to grow with your child in good character, the good grades will follow. Our Petra student LOVES learning at this school and refuses to miss school for any reason ("I can't take days off to go to Seattle with you, mom, because I'll miss too much at school"). That really impressed me that school is so challenging and engaging. The instructors really know how to teach amazing subjects such as Latin, music (violin), math, science, art, sports, and rhetoric by making each lesson challenging, relevant, motivating, intetesting, and even fun. We parents are constantly surprised and delighted by how much our children learn and retain that they can really use to acquire more knowledge and skill on their own. This is independent education at its finest for reasonable rates and with NO arrogance. I highly recommend this school.
