Letter From The Director

This week marks the beginning of an amazing journey for those that want to move from an urban lifestyle. An urban lifestyle promotes debt which is requiring more and more time working away from home. An urban lifestyle fosters so much specialization that individuals can no longer be self-reliant. They are a piece in a very complex economy that is fragile at best and when it breaks or slows down, the individual and their family often suffer.  In addition, an urban lifestyle can contribute to the damaging isolation much of our technology promotes with communications being reduced to a few words via text or short emails. Social interaction is found more and more in front of a gaming console or other electronic devices that diminish our personal investments into relationships that allow us to become something greater than we are.  These three city lifestyle challenges are prompting families to seek another alternative.

This week’s webinar, “The Journey Begins,” marks the start of a transition individuals and families are making towards a culture that encourages being self-reliant through knowledge and the skills to apply that knowledge, while remaining debt free. Once an individual and their family are self-reliant with out many of the constraints that current society tries to place upon a family, they are free to contribute and participate in a community with other like-minded families creating a stable, safe and caring environment in which to raise children.


We invite all to join with us at the Academy on the path to self-reliance and the freedom that comes with such a culture.


God speed,

Philip J Gleason

Executive Director
