MA hosts College Fair on campus

The annual North American Division (NAD) college fair came to Madison Academy.  For the first time, all students participated in their future by spending time talking with college and university representatives about careers, majors, college life, etc.  Seniors and Juniors are narrowing and finalizing choices about life after high school while the Freshmen and Sophomores are weighing options and evaluating colleges.

Students see business side of the Tennessee Titans

Five juniors from Madison Academy and hundreds of other students from across Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama participated in the Tennessee Titans Learning Lab. Participants were given a behind the scene look at the business side of the Titans organization that included presentations in marketing, cheer-leading, administration, media relations, community relations, team travel, equipment management, turf management and mascots.

Our students left school at 9AM and traveled to Nissan Stadium. They watched a welcome message on the video board then in groups of around 80 students started learning from the professionals. Each student also received a t-shirt and tickets to the final Titans home game against the Texans on December 27th.

SA Fall Ball has patriotic theme

The annual Student Association Fall ball was held at Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland’s home, starting at 6pm.  Students and staff were asked to dress up in their favorite patriotic–red, white and blue clothing.  Two weeks prior to this event SA officers passed out tickets to the ladies — giving them a chance to ask a friend to the Fall Ball.  Transportation and directions were provided.  The evening began with students throwing darts at balloons filled with paint.  While that was happening, others were taking pictures with friends by an American flag.  For supper students ate hot dogs, chips and baked beans. Apple crisp was for dessert.  Everyone chose either water or root beer as their beverage.  Later in the evening was a pumpkin carving contest as well as an award for best dressed.  The evening ended with sparklers and fireworks.

MGM trip announced

We are excited to announce that we will be heading to La Vida Mission in Farmington, NM for our spring MGM trip this year!!!  La Vida is a Navajo SDA Mission which includes a K-12 school, a church and a medical clinic.  Our main purpose is to restore and update the medical clinic which has not been functional for the past few years.  This will include redoing the flooring, tile work, painting, and other jobs around the clinic.  They have also asked if we have any medical professionals to come along and host a medical clinic, especially dentistry, but all medical care is needed.  LLU sends a group out there once a year and that is usually all the medical attention most of these people receive.

We would love to have as many students, staff and parents as possible.

Here are the details: Cost: $900(approx.)  We need $200 of the total $900 up front to secure your spot. When: Spring break-Tentative dates are March 7-15. *No passport, shots, visas required!  If you have any other questions, please email me.
