Our Programs

Soft skills are defined as personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people. These skills can not be taught directly, instead they are learned through experience. Our programs are designed to teach students through hands on experiences, presentations and discussion all while embracing an active and healthy lifestyle.


Technical Skills

Parents traditionally teach their children domestic technical arts. These skills include how to prepare and appreciate the food we eat, basic household repairs, first aid, and problem- solving. In our busy modern lives, the teaching of these skills may become lost. Knowledge of technical skills allow people to become less dependent on others, and more valuable to their community and workplace.

Wellness and health

Health is a product of lifestyle choices. Whether these choices are healthy or not is based on habits.  Ideally, the foundation for a healthy lifestyle is built early in life but it is never too late for self-improvement. Life Academy teaches families how to sustain a healthy lifestyle through nutrition seminars, exercise programs, and teaching proper body mechanics.

Academic Enrichment

Math, physics, science, and communication are all taught in schools. Students are taught and tested, and then begin to prepare for the next exam without truly learning the lessons at hand. At Life Academy, we believe application and experience is the key to truly understanding the lessons taught in school.


Social Competency and awareness

If our students only learn one skill at Life Academy, we hope it is empathy. Empathy is defined as the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing.  Social awareness and one’s impact on others is a skill which only comes through interpersonal interaction and experience. Students functioning within a community are given opportunities every day to impact those around them.
