Welcome To Thalia Academy!

Kingdom Centered Education for 3rd - 6th Graders

Thalia Academy is an online solution for parents of 3rd through 6th grade students seeking Kingdom Centered Education. Thalia educators leverage their degrees, teacher certification, AND decades of experience in education to teach all state-specific mandated core curriculum plus our unique, one of a kind, Kingdom Life curriculum.  During Kingdom Life class we establish Kingdom foundations, nurture personal relationship with Holy Spirit & develop a prophetic lifestyle. Thalia Academy runs Monday – Thursday from August to May.

Here at Thalia Academy, we believe:

  • You came from and were created by a good, kind, loving, Heavenly Father who designed you with a unique Identity, Purpose and Destiny.
  • ​That King Jesus rescued you from sin, death and the grave when He died on the cross.
  • ​That Holy Spirit lives within you and will never leave you.
  • ​That as God's child you are the extension of His heart and authority on earth, which is the definition of The Kingdom.
  • ​That the purpose of education is to equip the sons and daughters of God with everything that they need to be a blessing and rule and reign in The Kingdom by serving the world well.

About Us

Our Mission
Partnering with parents to give their children an individualized educational experience while establishing The Kingdom foundations of identity, purpose, and destiny.
What sets Thalia Academy apart?
Have you ever noticed how the public school system keeps adding more and more days to the school year? Summer seems to get shorter and shorter.
One of the greatest upgrades that Beth Alexander has innovated, which makes Thalia Academy a superior choice for your child's educational experience, is her signature 130 Learning Day Format!
One of the greatest issues in the majority of public school options is wasted time. Wasted time is really wasted life. In the average public school system your child will spend 1,350 hours of their lives on campus spread out over 180 days.
Because of Thalia Academy’s intentional low student to teacher ratio, your child will spend only 720 hours over 130 days engaged in active learning. Despite spending less time in the classroom, because every hour spent in Thalia Academy is purposeful, your student will graduate each year with a broader exposure to (and retention of) all subjects than your average public school system student. Perhaps best of all your student will accomplish this while having more time to experience life and enjoy being a kid!

Parent testimonials
Thalia Academy has been amazing for our daughter. We love the family approach they have with each of their students. The students speak life over each other and learn to believe in themselves where they’re at even when they’re struggling in a specific subject. When issues rise up, Beth communicates with me and together we bring solutions to help my daughter reach her greatest potential without making her feel behind. This school has been a gift and an answer to prayer. This is not an ordinary school, this is a training center for Kingdom world changers and history makers! 

-Alex & Cynthia M.

We are seeking all things Kingdom as a family. We were excited to enroll our child in Thalia Academy to have him learn Kingdom at his level from an original Kingdom monster in the Education Mountain.
It's been amazing to see him thrive in his education, build amazing friendships with children outside our city and most of all grow in his identity and discover his unique gifts. I've seen healing from his past living a life closer to God, growing with Jesus and conversations with Holy Spirit. I don't have to redirect him all day because he enjoys learning. The intimate classroom setting with Beth's engaging lessons have made school something enjoyable for someone who struggled sitting through public school. We appreciate and truly value what Beth Alexander and her staff have done for our son, our home and the future of our legacy.
 
-Amador & Rosemary C.
