Bible Based Character Education

During School Hours

Yes, it's possible. Why not in your community?

Most people have never heard about "Released Time Religious Instruction" (RTRI) and the amazing opportunity it provides to impact students. Under RTRI laws, students can be released from public school during school hours to attend religious classes, provided the program is off school property, privately funded and parent permitted.

By starting a LifeWise Academy RTRI program...

  1. Parents and community members pass along time-tested biblical principles.

  2. Schools see improved classroom behavior, mental health and academic performance.

  3. Students gain an understanding of the Bible which has shaped the hearts and minds

of many people through the centuries.

Anyone in any community can take the first step toward starting a local LifeWise.
