A decision to apply to Weimar Academy should be weighed carefully. Being a student at Weimar Academy is both rewarding and challenging. Success requires personal maturity and a willingness to accept responsibility for one’s actions. Agreement with the following statements may indicate your readiness to be a student at Weimar Academy.
I have a settled conviction that a life in harmony with Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of my life’s goals. I may not have fully matured in all aspects of life, but I have settled the question of who has my allegiance, and I am actively seeking a love relationship with Jesus Christ.
I recognize the importance of personal commitment to the school, its purposes, its people, and its practices. As I develop my God-given individuality, I will remain committed to the well-being of the group and a supportive member of the school family.
I am committed to academic excellence. I value the deeply Biblical, intellectually-challenging emphasis given to course work at Weimar Academy. My highest motivation for excellence in learning is to glorify God, not to bring recognition to myself.
I desire to be actively involved in personal service and witnessing for my faith as an important part of my education. I know that my own personal growth is directly related to the use of my spiritual gifts on behalf of others.
I am willing to follow God’s lead in coming to Weimar Academy and will do everything within my power to achieve His goals for me, even if unexpected circumstances or obstacles arise.
If you feel that the above statements are true for you, we welcome you to apply to Weimar Academy.
