Our Philosophy of Education


A freeman ought not to be a slave in the acquisition of knowledge of any kind... knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind.



Parents are the primary educators of their children.

We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and that schools don’t replace parents.  The mentors of John Adams Academy-Online are partners with parents in their child’s education.


Empowering you, as the parent.

We strive to empower you as the parent with resources and supports to assist you in fulfilling that role. Further, we strive to empower your child to become a scholar, to fully access our American Classical Leadership Education®, and to succeed in any endeavor in life.


Championing the right of every family.

We champion the right of every family to choose from a myriad of educational options that fit their needs and the individual needs of their children.
