About the project.
LifeWise Academy is a Released Time Religious Instruction (RTRI) program which provides Bible based character education to public school students. Under RTRI laws, students can be released from public school during the school day to attend religious classes, provided the program is off school property, privately funded and parent permitted.
LifeWise Academy serves students by offering practical Bible-based education for the betterment of students’ academic performance, character development and mental health. LifeWise believes all students can benefit from the message of the Bible and take great care to make all instruction relatable and helpful to those without a church or Christian background. LifeWise Academy serves alongside educators by reinforcing and complementing their efforts. In addition to seeing improved behavior and academic performance, public schools with a local RTRI program can attract families who may otherwise opt out of public education for lack of religious instruction.
LifeWise Academy is careful in adhering to federal, state and district policies and flexible in coordinating with school officials. LifeWise Academy serves communities by providing a practical way for community members to positively impact rising generations.
