The Guy D. Newman Honors Academy Renovation Project

About The Project

As HPU and its honors program look to the years ahead, the future is bright, with a revitalized Academy of Freedom building at the forefront. Begun in the fall of 2019, renovations to the facility will preserve the building’s historical vitality and the artifacts contained within, while also lending a renewed value to the functionality of the building.

Window Naming Opportunities

The 18 windows covering the front hallway are a signature feature of the Academy building. The windows reflect the Academy’s motto as lights of faith and knowledge. The light from the outside illuminates the values taught within, which Academy students and graduates are encouraged to model transparently to a watching world. Supporters can sponsor these windows at $10,000 each and honor a family member or loved one with a plaque in their name.
