One of the unique attributes of Mirus Academy is its great missional vision. Education is one of the primary means for shaping lives for the glory of God. The community of Mount Desert Island and
the surrounding area is in desperate need of an education that will challenge students to think harder, love harder, and most importantly, selflessly live. Mirus Academy is not seeking to shelter students from the world, but rather it is seeking to awaken hearts and minds to the wonder of the world around them, to see God and his wonders everywhere.
At Mirus, we are continually finding ways to offer our services to the community. Currently, teachers at the school will offer tutoring services to students not attending Mirus Academy. This comes in the form of both classical classes (ex. Grammar, Logic, etc.) and private tutoring sessions. This service comes from our heart to see students learn how to "human" well, that is, to live with their minds awake. We marvel at the great potential this provides for the community.
As we look to expand a grade every year, it comes with great need. In 2015-2016, we will be offering three grade levels: kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. This requires additional space, another full time teacher, additonal students, and even greater prayers. If your heart sings as you read these newsletters, please consider joining us in this incredible effort. You are helping us train kings and queens of the future.
Our financial needs for the upcoming year include the following:
$12,000 - building rental
$35,000 - additional teacher salary
$4,000 - (each) scholarship for tuition
$5,000 - curriculum/supplies
