A Christian Hybrid Learning Community

Our Story

The inception of Aletheia United Academy began with a heart posture of prayer. In October 2022, a group of families saw a need to offer homeschooling students an avenue for academic accountability and regular, in person, peer-to-peer connections rooted in a biblical worldview. As prayer and discussions continued, three of the founding members began visiting hybrid model schools in the southeast region of the United States. They fully immersed themselves in the hybrid academic culture to truly understand the model and what it would look like to bring this type of classroom setting to Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Lord continued to impress on them the desire to cultivate the hearts and minds of students through home education and academic rigor. The call to disciple the students within the home, while also creating scholars who are able to achieve academic success remained at the center of Aletheia United Academy’s core beliefs and values. With that deep-seated vision, it was decided that Aletheia would be a Christian hybrid academic community.

Believing that, “He is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20), the founding members pressed on in faith to see what God was doing with the vision to start this hybrid community.

In January 2024, the Aletheia United Academy Board of Directors was formed and the goal of a 2024-25 academic year was established. It was determined that in order to best teach our students diligently (Deuteronomy 6:9), we need the support of loving teachers, offering regular instruction, who assist the teaching parents in character development, discipleship, and academic rigor. The founding members heartily believe that it is essential to unite the heart of discipleship with the expertise of a skilled educator in order to create kingdom scholars who love Christ and who are on mission to fulfill the Great Commission in the world.

Our Mission

Aletheia United Academy is a Christian hybrid learning community that partners with families to provide a rigorous education with a biblical worldview in the classical tradition. We seek to foster scholarly accountability and discipline within a caring and supportive environment, equipping students as disciples of Christ to glorify God and represent His kingdom in the world.

Our vision

Aletheia United Academy is committed to the truth, discipline, and values of the gospel of Jesus Christ as we join together with families to offer students the ability to achieve academic excellence from a biblical worldview. We seek to integrate the home and the classroom by offering scholarly accountability to assist parents in their teaching role and equip students for academic success. Aletheia United Academy will pursue Christ-centered community, fulfilling the great commission by making disciples who aspire to love and glorify God in all that we say and do.

Our Philosophy

Aletheia United Academy believes the chief goal and purpose of all things—including education—is to love God and love our neighbor. True education is literally impossible without such a transcendent goal and purpose. The Bible teaches us that all knowledge comes from God, and therefore, all knowledge has unity. At Aletheia United Academy, we teach all subjects as part of an integrated whole, with the Scriptures at the center. We are both traditional and classical—learning from the great literature of our Christian heritage, combined with an emphasis on the basics of mathematics, science, foreign-language and elective courses which focus on traditional academic areas and career pathways to prepare students for success at the collegiate level and in the workforce. Students are equipped to know and love the truth and utilize that knowledge to glorify God in all things.



Aletheia United Academy teaches all subjects as part of an integrated whole in light of God’s written word, the Bible, to inspire students to evaluate all that they learn and experience through the Word of God. Our goal is to know and love the beauty and glory of God, and to live, work, serve, and worship together as an educational community centered around the Lord Jesus Christ.



For centuries, education was grounded on an emphasis of imparting the basic tools of learning, designed to equip students in verbal and reasoning skills within a God-centered view of life. Today’s departure from teaching the basics has resulted in the current trend of declining student achievement.

Dorothy Sayers, a renowned Oxford trained educator, in her essay, “The Lost Tools of Learning,” defined the structure of the classic educational process and found that it fit the natural learning development of children. She showed that the key elements of classical education – Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric – corresponded with the four natural learning stages of a child:

  1. Beginning Grammar, Grades K-3, Reading/Writing
  2. Grammar, Grades 3-6, Writing
  3. Logic, Grades 7-9, Thinking
  4. Rhetoric, Grades 10-12, Speaking

Aletheia United Academy desires to teach the wholehearted child from a biblical worldview. We believe that biblical worldview immersion is taught and impressed on the hearts and minds of students through the truth, beauty, and goodness of an intelligent God who designed the world with a created order. We believe that all subjects are interwoven with a spiritual fabric that cannot be separated. Because of this truth, all subjects are taught as an integrated whole.

Classical education is the foundation of our pedagogy, however, we desire to offer a complete well-rounded liberal arts education that also includes educational philosophies like Charlotte Mason. Charlotte Mason was a 19th century British educator whose work is popular in many homeschool circles. Aletheia United Academy implements aspects of a Charlotte Mason education into our curriculum and course offerings. Charlotte Mason believed education falls into three categories: Knowledge of God, Knowledge of Man, and Knowledge of the Universe. Knowledge of God is paramount and from Him comes all knowledge; for that reason, Mason started each school day with the study of the Bible, God’s Word. Without knowing God, all other knowledge is futile. Knowledge of Man encompasses the humanities: history, geography, reading, writing, literature, poetry, foreign languages, art, and music. Knowledge of the Universe includes math, science, and nature study. Aletheia United Academy will begin each day with Morning Assembly based off of Charlotte Mason’s model to begin learning on the foundation of God’s Word.

Currently, we do not have the staff available to work individually with special needs students. We can meet with parents on a case-by-case basis and make a mutual decision about whether a student would be well-served at Aletheia United Academy. However, because of our small staff size, most of the accommodations would need to be done at home with the parent.



Yes. We have a simple dress code requirement. More information can be found in our handbook.

Aletheia United Academy is a “personal-device-free” campus for students. We do not allow students to bring phones, tablets, or computers to class, and we do not design our lessons around technology during our on campus days. Students will need access to a computer and printer at home. Students are expected to check their own ClassReach accounts. Students should have access to the internet in order to print the weekly agenda and communicate via ClassReach.



One of the most important ingredients in the success of the hybrid model is an available parent who can assist and properly work with their student. For a family in which both parents work outside the home, or a single parent who must work on a full-time basis, a more traditional school is often a better choice. We are happy to review each situation on a case-by-case basis to see if Aletheia is a good fit for your family.

No. Aletheia United Academy is not a homeschool co-op. Homeschool co-ops rely on the homeschooling families to teach, volunteer, serve on campus regularly. Aletheia is designed to hire teachers and staff to teach specific subjects in their professional field of study. Some teachers are parents of Aletheia students, but that is an exception not the rule. Parent volunteers are needed to make the hybrid model a success, but it is not a requirement to serve at the academy.
