WELCOME TO PETRA ACADEMY
We partner with Christian parents to reassure them in their school pursuit
to see their children faithfully stand out in the world.
Families and students of Petra Academy are invited to support school choice in Montana. This Thursday, January 24, there will be a rally on the steps of the State Capitol in Helena from noon until 1 p.m., immediately followed by a Citizen Lobby Day when families can discuss the importance of school choice with their elected representatives.
In the evening, Valerie Lewis, a senior at Petra Academy, will be a featured presenter at the local Delta Hotel at 2301 Colonial Drive for a Capitol Briefing. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. followed by the presentations (register at the link).
Please contact Kaleigh Cunningham at (406) 595-3121 for more information.

At last week’s Schola Cantorum concert, I thanked those younger students not yet in one of our programs for the good attention they showed their older siblings who were performing. “If you want to show someone you love them,” I said, “you listen to them.” I was surprised by how many parents came up to me […]
