January 24, 2022. The Education Department is pleased to report that today, the Conference Board of Education has approved ASPIRE Academy to pursue offering 11th grade for the 2022-2023 school year and will offer the 12th grade for the 2023-2024 school year! Additional details will be provided in short order from ASPIRE Academy regarding this exciting opportunity for our Michigan Conference families, and you can also check out the website for updates (www.aspiresda.com), that includes additional information about the program.
ASPIRE Academy is a live synchronous, grades 1-10 program that has grown from two teachers and 18 students last year to the present school year that includes four full-time teachers, grades 1-10 and 56 students. The academy is seeing continued and increased interest as it seeks to create opportunities for families desiring Adventist education. With an enrollment climate that has been negatively impacted over the last several decades, ASPIRE is broadening the educational net and is reaching students in ways that eliminate geographic boundaries and offers synchronous Adventist Education that is accessible for most. We solicit your prayers for this ministry as we continue to seek God’s leading and direction.
