At Iron Academy, we're different from day one.
Whether it's spending a student's first week running a Crucible high above the NC mountains, or our Blade Maintenance Plan's integration of parents into their son's education, Iron Academy is focused on cultivating the attitude that "I am my brother's keeper."
But how exactly does one do this?
By example, and through experience.
We entrust young men to lead: to practice it, to mess it up, to study it in action, and to learn from real-world successes and failures. Much of the daily life at Iron Academy relies upon student-directed leadership. Our students and student leaders:
- run Convocation every morning;
- clean the entire school;
- handle much of the discipline (Mt 18:15-17);
- hold one another accountable to the Honor Code;
- and even formulate the school rules each year.
Our Keeper Program is a model of our discipleship distinctive. It not only trains our students how to lead, but more importantly how to lead and mentor with love and by example. It's something you can only teach through the type of iron-sharpens-iron discipleship that happens at Iron Academy.
With all the problems beset by our nation today, we are in desperate need for a new generation of leaders who will be their "brother's keepers."
At Iron Academy, we forge boys into the next generation of godly young leaders who never give up on serving their neighbors and King Jesus. If you believe in Iron Academy's call to disciple boys into Christ-serving men, would you consider making a needed end-of-year donation of $25, $50, $100, or more today?
PS: Thanks to a generous donor, every gift you give until December 31st will be matched and have its impact doubled!
