IMPACT Education was created by Aaron Academy teachers who love Jesus, love students, and love learning. We provide weekly classes appropriate for students in grades 6-12. It is important to note that IMPACT Education is a tutorial program, not a school. The services we provide are only to assist parents who teach their students at home or those who wish to give their students an extra boost in preparation for college. We recommend that parents who teach their children at home enroll them in an umbrella school such as Aaron Academy for purposes of record-keeping and high school graduation. For sports we recommend the Hendersonville Royals.
We believe that “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” are hidden in Jesus (Colossians 2:3) We believe that secularization is an artificial construct which removes much of the meaning from knowledge. We therefore do not offer any courses taught from a secularized point of view. We believe that “gracious words promote instruction,” (Proverbs 16:21) and we try to couch all our instruction in an atmosphere of grace. We welcome inquiries from parents who are comfortable with our philosophy and who want to give their students a robust and engaging college-preparatory experience.
We conducted 41 classes during the 2016-2017 academic year with an average of 4.4 students per class. The largest class had 10 students. This year we are conducting 30 classes with 2 new ones starting January 8, 2018. Our average class size is 4.2 students. If you have an idea of a class you’d like us to offer, please let us know.
