Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

We seek to inspire our scholars to become persons of virtue who can identify, understand, seek, and share what is good, true, and beautiful.
John Adams Academy develops scholars who are virtuous leaders in their homes, communities, and country who naturally hunger for oncoming responsibilities and future contributions in society.
