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
"I regret exceedingly that courses in study in the public schools, in the colleges and places of learning throughout the land, are in conflict with fundamental truths of the Christian faith; and, for one, I desire to express my feelings, and to declare that I consider it an outrage against the liberties of the people, when we are denied the priviledge of teaching principles of eternal truths, in the realm of religion; when we are denied the priviledge of praying to our Heavenly Father in the schools, or referring to a Supreme Being, for fear that, we will offend someone; and at the same time instructors are permitted to advocate that in the schools which the teachers themselves profess and declare to be in conflict with the fundamentals of the faith which I believe, and which thousands of others accept throughout this nation and other nations of the world as divine truth. --Joseph Fielding Smith (Conference Report, October 1921, 185)"
