Staff/Student Spotlight

This month’s spotlight is Jodi Burnside. Jodi joins the Life Prep Academy board of directors. Jodi has been an educator for 32 years, since graduating from Bethel College. In addition to teaching, she developed the education program for Patrick Henry Family Services in Virginia, led teacher training in Belize, and will be leaving for Turkmenistan in August to become the director of instruction for Quality Schools International. Jodi is a sports nut, and likes to travel and spend time with her husband and family. Welcome to LPA Jodi!


Thank you to everyone who attended our 5th annual dinner and silent auction! We appreciate the continued support of Life Prep Academy. It was a great opportunity to announce the completion of our new dorm and celebrate our progress with everyone.

We have our annual yard sale fundraiser coming June 7th to June 10th. We will be taking items for donation up until June 6th. So, as you’re doing your Spring cleaning, and enjoying the long-awaited arrival of nice weather, please consider donating unwanted items to us.

We are accepting students at this time. Please share with your churches, etc, to keep us in mind if they become aware of any teens that would benefit from Life Prep Academy. In addition to placing homeless teens in our dorm, the LPA board approved enrolling up to 10 other teens that could benefit from our program, but do not need to reside in the dorm.
