Locust Grove Academy

We are homeschooling families: Rooted in faith. Growing in community. Thriving in service.


Mission & Vision

We are sowing and cultivating seeds of faith for our children, our families, and our community. We are rooted in and guided by Sacred tradition and scripture. We accomplish our mission through building relationships, acts of service, and exploration of God’s creation.


We seek to develop and encourage our children’s Catholic heritage by:

  • Being rooted in the Sacraments and rich prayer life of the Catholic church.

  • Facilitating enrichment activities at Heritage Preserve and surrounding communities.

  • Allowing our children to encounter creation through nature study.

  • Discovering new skills and handicrafts such as carpentry, gardening, woodsmanship, sewing, and cooking & baking by learning from guest artisans and craftsmen.

  • Modeling lives of service by putting faith into action through the:

    • Corporal Works of Mercy: Feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned.

    • Spiritual Works of Mercy: Counsel the doubtful, instruct the ignorant, admonish the sinner, comfort the sorrowful, forgive injuries, bear wrongs patiently, pray for the living and the dead.
