The mission of Liahona Preparatory Academy is to assist parents in educating their children in the fundamentals of the arts, letters and sciences while integrating the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We strive to provide a challenging academic education by infusing secular knowledge into LDS doctrine and values in order that students might understand ALL knowledge in the context of the eternal.
Liahona Preparatory Academy is an accredited private school for Pre-K through 12th grade using iSchool technology. We provide core academic classes integrated with a Latter-day Saint gospel base in a fun, motivational and nurturing environment! Liahona offers a fully accredited track, or a home school track. Every student receives an iPad as an educational tool.
Pleasant Grove academy becomes an iSchool
Liahona's Distance Education Program is the largest LDS-based Junior High and High School distance program in the nation. Students enjoy our motivational teachers and associating with other LDS home-educated students coast to coast. Parents appreciate that the program is user-friendly, flexible and may be taken for credit.
For many teenage students, revealed knowledge, LDS truths, values and principles are often relegated to “church or seminary” with little understanding of how they apply to academic subjects and thought. Our goal and desire is to combine academics and revealed knowledge into one whole, equipping students to fulfill their heritage and mission.
A FLEETING THOUGHT
"The Lord clearly values what you will find in that history book and in a text on political theory. Remember His words. He wants you to know "things which have been, things which are, things which are abroad; the wars and the perplexities of the nations" (D&C 88:79). And He favors not only Spanish verbs but the study of geography and demography. You remember that His educational charter requires we have "A knowledge also of countries and of kingdoms" (D&C 88:79). There is also an endorsement for questions we study in the sciences. It is clear that putting spiritual learning first does not relieve us from learning secular things. On the contrary, it gives our secular learning purpose and motivates us to work harder at it. -- Henry B. Eyring (Education for Real Life, Ensign, Oct 2002)"
