Students need to come to class on time for each class session. Students will be excused from class only when the teacher has been contacted by a parent, directly from a parent email. Students are expected to watch archives of any classes missed. Unless special arrangements are made beforehand, students must complete homework on schedule for credit.
The reading pace at Integritas Academy is thoughtful and thorough, and we appreciate the motto "quality is better than quantity." By discussing and interpreting carefully chosen books and texts, students learn to generalize their thought patterns and apply thinking skills to all texts and subject matter. At Integritas Academy, we believe that literature is about joyful learning, not about completing a checklist.

Once upon a time in the dead of winter in the Dakota territory, Theodore Roosevelt took off in a makeshift boat down the Little Missouri River in pursuit of a couple of thieves who had stolen his prized rowboat. After several days on the river, he caught up and got the draw on them with his trusty Winchester, at which point they surrendered. Then Roosevelt set off in a borrowed wagon to haul the thieves cross-country to justice. They headed across the snow-covered wastes of the Badlands to the railhead at Dickinson, and Roosevelt walked the whole way, the entire 40 miles. It was an astonishing feat, what might be called a defining moment in Roosevelt's eventful life. But what makes it especially memorable is that during that time, he managed to read all of Anna Karenina. I often think of that when I hear people say that they haven't time to read.
