Funding the Year

We've seen our very first responses to last week's annual letter: three checks totaling $1,800! Would you prayerfully consider helping us overcome our deficit with a donation by the end of our fiscal year, June 30th? All gifts are tax-deductible.
     When you send in your gift, don't forget that you can include a year-end appreciation message for your student's teacher(s) for special delivery. Email Headmaster Craig Dunham with questions.

Uniquely Classical

The Association of Classical & Christian Schools' recently mailed the summer issue of their Classical Difference magazine to all families of enrolled Petra students.
     Read why professors are leaving their college classrooms to teach at classical Christian schools. Moms, you probably don’t need a to-do list, but they've made one for you anyway to help get ready for the middle and end of summer, not just the start. It's all part of (and free!) at the Classical Difference.

Quote of the Week

"I want to thank Petra, the Board of Directors, and the donors that make it possible for my son to attend Petra Academy. Without a scholarship, it would not be financially possible for my son to be a part of such a fine school.
     I am so thankful for the education, values, and genuine love my son receives every day from everyone at Petra. Our lives are blessed; his life is blessed.
     Thanks to everyone who gave their time and consideration to make the scholarship decisions."
     A thankful Petra mom
