Legally Teach The Bible

During School Hours

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Studying the Bible during school hours?!?! How on earth can this be legal?

A: The legality of Released Time Religious Education has been upheld by the US Supreme Court for more than 60 years. Specific state policies vary.

The law allows public school students to receive elective Biblical instruction during the school day, under the following conditions:
