Students May Apply Now for Faithways Academy
Submitted on October 2, 2018
Faithways Academy, Georgetown College’s High School Theological Institute, enters its third year in summer 2019. Early application is now available for students in grades nine to eleven.
During each of the past two summers, high school students from across the country have gathered on campus to study the Bible, Theology, and Electives of their choosing. This program gives students who have a deep interest in their faith a place to learn and discover more and provides the opportunity to dive into some of the deep questions we all have.
In addition to the rewarding college-like experience and the knowledge gained from being taught by college and seminary professors in and out of the classroom, those who complete the program and later enroll at GC are eligible for annual scholarships. They could receive $2,500 annually for each of their four years of undergraduate study.
Previously a two-week on-campus, residential experience, Faithways Academy beginning next summer will be held as two single-week sessions accommodating a maximum of 46 students per week. “This will give more students the opportunity to attend,” said Andrew Noe ’08, the director.
The dates are June 15-21 and June 22-28. The cost for each one-week program is $225 per person. Interested students are encouraged to speak with their church leadership, as many churches are willing to fully sponsor or split the cost.
“In each of our first two summers, we saw around 20 students come and have their lives changed. The electives they choose while here give them a project to complete and take back home to their church to show what they learned during the program,” Noe remarked. “Our classes, worship times, and field trips to local churches to hear what makes each denomination unique are all moments of learning and fun.”
