Legally Teach The Bible 

During School Hours

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

 8 in 10 American youth don't attend church ... 


...but 9 in 10 attend public schools. What does this mean?  Reaching youth with the gospel in today's culture is a challenge.  Since most students aren't inside church walls, why not go where they are? 

LifeWise Academy takes advantage of the only legal way to provide Bible education to public school students during school hours.
