Did You Know Churches Can

Teach the Bible During School Hours?

The Supreme Court has spoken. In 1952, SCOTUS ruled that students can be released from public school during schools hours to attend religious classes. These "released time" programs must be off school property, privately funded and parent permitted.


Though legal for decades, most people have never heard about released time. It is considered by many to be the greatest missed opportunity of the American church to reach the next generation with the Word of God.

LifeWise Academy provides the tools for local churches and community members to share the life-changing Word of God with local public school students.

What We Believe

LifeWise Academy maintains a high view of the authority of Scripture and we align ourselves with historic, orthodox Christian beliefs as expressed in the Nicene Creed. We believe the story-line of Scripture that climaxes in the central gospel message, that Jesus Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead. We believe this gospel is true, essential and announces the way by which sinners are reconciled to God.
