"It offers what no other worldview conference does—one-on-one personal attention"

The Academy really does infuse a passion for God and His word. It also provides compelling and logical reasons for students to trust in the gospel wholeheartedly. It offers what no other worldview conference does—one-on-one personal attention with a professor/leader. I saw, and I believe you will see, evidence of this program’s effectiveness immediately. Don't miss this opportunity. Invest in the future by providing your students a chance to attend Wheatstone.

"This is the way that we will transform our culture."

Wheatstone is doing something very important - helping young Christians grow into adulthood such that their faith is fully integrated into their lives. As an apologist, I see a great need for Christians to realize that truth and beauty go hand in hand, and that we must engage with culture, not retreat from it, in order to transform it. Wheatstone is helping to prepare the next generation to do precisely that. I'm particularly excited about the way that Wheatstone calls young people to a life of holiness - this is the way that we will transform our culture.

"An exceptional spiritual and intellectual experience"

The Academy is an exceptional spiritual and intellectual experience, and it does an outstanding job of equipping believers in a Christian worldview apt for engaging the world of ideas in college. From the faculty to the staff to the format, the entire program smacks of excellence and I am delighted to be a part of it.

For several years now I have seen up close what the The Academy experience has done in the lives of students who attend. My conclusion? I've never seen anything like it. Wheatstone is unique, stimulating, transformative, and has a lasting impact on the minds and character of those who take the plunge.

"A place of deep thought, Biblical training, and spiritual formation"

Wheatstone was instrumental in forming the Christian worldview of my kids. As we journeyed along the parenting road, I was thrilled that Wheatstone was a great stopping place, an incredible learning moment for our family. It’s a place of deep thought, Biblical training, and spiritual formation. I heartily recommend it!

"The Academy is unique in both content and long-term impact."

For years I have prayed that God would raise up a passionate multitude of teens and college students who love truth, think rationally, and whose lives are based on a Biblical world view. That's why I am so excited about The Academy- a unique summer program that impacts young people both spiritually and intellectually.  There are many options when it comes to camps and retreats, but The Academy is unique in both content and long-term impact. I have seen firsthand how the Lord is using this program to groom those who will likely become the Christian leaders of tomorrow. I believe that Wheatstone is a wonderful investment that will enhance a student for life, and will count for eternity.

"Equipping tomorrow’s Christian leaders."

In the face of the many challenges that Christian students meet in the college years, The Academy has provided a dynamic and relevant program that guides young people toward a solid, Scripturally-based faith. Through the curriculum and the faculty, students are challenged to use their gifts and their minds for God’s purposes, not for worldly prestige. I believe that Wheatstone is equipping tomorrow’s Christian leaders.
