Our family has been with Sojourn Academy (formerly Oak Ridge Christian Academy) for 7 years now. Although it lacks flashy facilities, you would have a hard time finding a school that provides a better depth and breadth of education as Sojourn Academy provides. Moreover, this school does an exceptional job of assimilating all facets of Christian instruction (creeds, basic doctrine, and virtues that are biblically anchored and historical with the church) into the academic curriculum, and fostering Christian character in our children. My children are being given a comprehensive education that far exceeds what I was provided in my public education experience, and based on my experience as a graduate of a private university, they are being equipped to excel in whatever they choose to pursue at any college they desire. Maybe even more important is that the school and all of its members are like extended family. What a joy it is to learn -- and how much more you can learn -- in an environment where you are emotionally secure. That is certainly true for both of my daughters, especially for my younger one who has a profound speech delay. She is achieving academic goals in this supportive school to a degree I am certain could never be replicated in environments that focus merely on academics and not on true Christian love. I wholeheartedly endorse this school, and I plan on being here to see both my girls graduate from Sojourn!

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullying is not tolerated, and it is effectively handled in a way that immediately seeks to protect the child who is bullied while at the same time addressing the infraction without alienating the bully. Christian character seeks to bring unity and love, and I have personally seen this achieved.


Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
As I mentioned in another topical review here, I have two girls with two different styles of learning, and one of them has Apraxia of speech (which means she has a profound speech delay and a delay in her ability to write, dysgraphia, etc.) . Both my girls are thriving academically, socially... in every way. Furthermore, this school offers what they call the Resource program that is there to help the kiddos that need it (my child with a speech delay participates) and it does a wonderful job keeping kids with these kinds of extra challenges up to speed with all of their class mates!

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Christian formation is at the heart of the school's mission and ministry, and they do a superb job of modeling Christian character and fostering Christian behavior in the students. Both my kids are often given compliments about how well they behave, how sensitive they are to the needs of others, and how expressive and engaged they are in company. I attribute a large amount of that to my children's daily exposure to the attributes of Christian deportment at their school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Exceptional teachers! I have two children who have very different needs as far as their personalities go and their ways of processing information, etc., Both my kids thrive at this school because the teachers are so willing to work with each student as unique as they come.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is a regular part of the curriculum, but I have found it manageable. They tend to go lighter on Wednesday night to accommodate families that participate in Wednesday night Bible studies at their churches.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers help students walk through conflict and handle it in a Biblical manner

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
I have seen their efforts in making accommodations as much as possible to assist students with learning differences and help them be successful in the classroom.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
the fruits of the Spirit are emphasized on a daily basis. They begin the day in the Word of God and pull out a weekly truth to embed in their hearts throughout the school day.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is manageable for my first grader. Not overwhelming, only reviewing concepts to solidify independent work or practice reading. Teaches independence and responsibility
