We are a educational center based on learning to serve God, family and country as the aim and end in all learning. Our philosophy is based on the writings of Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, and the Founding Fathers. Julianne Skousen Kimber; daughter of the late Dr. Skousen, has written over 100 of the guidebooks we use as curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to give each student a well-rounded education with a solid academic foundation. We teach five talents using five text books (religious studies, math, science, language arts, and history) to teach these five talents. The children learn to work with the spirit as the true teacher daily through different methods of teaching.
The formerly known Benjamin Franklin Academy was formed in the early 1990’s by Glenn J. Kimber and his wife Julianne Skousen Kimber. It has been called Kimber Academy since 2007. The Lindon Schoolhouse, formerly from Lehi, has been in its current location since 2022.
We believe in giving back to families their precious family time. It is in the home where life skills are taught, proper relationships are built and foundational teachings in the gospel are practiced. “If the public schools can keep children occupied from 7:00 or 7:30 in the morning, throughout the day, with sports after school, and homework in the evening, the parents will have less than an hour a day with their children, and the family’s and Christian church’s influence over them could be broken in about a generation.” (Crisis in Education–An American Enigma” 1994, pg.1)
We do however offer additional elective classes in the afternoon run by the parents. These could include Humanities, Math and Science, and the Arts etc. This schedule changes per quarter.
Kimber Academy’s foundation is religious but is NOT church affiliated. The curriculum used at the Kimber Academy is written and designed to best achieve the spiritual as well as the academic goals outlined in the Kimber Academy Mission Statement. It is very important that all those associated with the Kimber Academy understand the curriculum, and how it is taught, and the reasons behind its methodology and philosophy.
Each subject is designed to motivate and train students to become the best servants of God that they can be. To accomplish this, every textbook and study guide is designed with three main goals which should be accomplished in the lives of students:
1. To increase the student's testimony of God and develop a closer relationship with Him.
2. To help each student gain knowledge by developing a mastery of the subject itself.
3. To ingrain within each student the Intrinsic Values of each subject, which will help develop life-enhancing talents.
