Through a broad-based liberal arts education that emphasizes Judeo-Christian values, Western Civilization, free enterprise, and civic engagement, the Honors Academy explores the nature and meaning of both citizenship and leadership from a variety of perspectives–including and in light of our Christian faith and the greatest traditions of the American system.
The Honors Academy’s academic curriculum reflects the importance of breadth and depth of knowledge in the training of effective and ethical leaders. Five distinct Foundations ensure that students develop intellectual and practical skills in a variety of disciplinary or methodological areas. The Foundations are: Philosophical; National/International; Economic; Civic; Experiential Learning. These combine with the General Education Curriculum, the Academy Capstone, and the student’s second academic major to achieve the Honors Academy’s mission of preparing effective Christian leaders for lives of service and citizenship.

The Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Science, or the Bachelor of Business Administration Degree may be obtained with a dual major in the Honors Academy: Civic Leadership and Public Policy and a second academic, not pre-professional, major. (See Approved Second Majors for more information.)
