ABOUT SKIPSTONE ACADEMY

Our Philosophy

The only way to teach someone to skip a stone is to show him how and allow him to attempt it again and again until the stone hops along the water in perfect rhythm. He cannot learn to skip stones from just reading a book about it. You cannot just tell him how to do it. You have to show him how and let him try. Sometimes it takes one try, sometimes two or three tries, then sometimes it takes hours of trying until finally...
the stone skips.
That’s the Skipstone Philosophy...Showing, Trying, Learning, Succeeding

Our Purpose

To prepare students for the specific life plan that God has for them by utilizing innovative and creative teaching techniques that will motivate, inspire, and challenge students to aspire to make a positive difference in the world around them.

Skipstone is a school for students who learn best by doing. It is a school where students spend the majority of their time doing and trying rather than sitting and listening. Lessons are creatively designed to be hands-on and project based. Teamwork, Initiative, Innovation, and Integrity are all important aspects of the Skipstone Philosophy and Purpose.
