Monica Hinshaw and Michele Trenhaile have been in education for a combined 58 years. They plan to continue educating children by opening a Christian school near Clarence.
“In these trying times, we felt this is what we are being called to do,” said Hinshaw and Trenhaile.
Living Water Christian Academy (LWCA) is a non-denominational school where Jesus Christ is glorified. In its first year, LWCA will educate children in Kindergarten through sixth grade. They will use Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) curriculum.
A.C.E. provides a foundation of Scripture, Godly character-building, biblical principles, and wisdom through its mastery-based learning program. It places children at their academic ability level in each subject through diagnostic testing, making student learning very individualized.
Patriotism is also something HInshaw and Trenhaile will emphasize.
Afternoon specials will include PE, music, art, and hopefully many fun extras, such as gymnastics, dance, and puppetry. They plan to go on fieldtrips, as well.
“We are on God’s time frame. We continue to move forward, because that’s what He wants us to do,” said Hinshaw and Trenhaile.
LWCA’s mission is: To prepare and equip students for life by providing them with an education based on the knowledge, values and principles contained in the Bible and helping them be “In God’s Word, on bended knee, armed with strength, and ready for Christ’s return!”
Those interested in attending or giving donations to LWCA can contact Hinshaw at firstname.lastname@example.org or Trenhaile at email@example.com.
They both recently retired from the North Shelby School District.
