Welcome to Wellmont Academy
We are an accredited Christian private school for K12 students, and we are redefining Christian education.
We are the only fully accredited Christian school in Pinellas County that offers a campus experience 5 days a week, but also retains the option for students who qualify to use our hybrid model (attend class 3 days).
Our hybrid model is unique. Other hybrid schools offer 3 days of enrollment, but only offer 3 days of corporate classes and 2 days of homeschooling. Wellmont Academy is different. We utilize an intentional hybrid model for both students who homeschool 2 days per week and those who attend campus all 5 days.
We do not skimp on important offerings like electives, sports, Chapel, leadership clubs, NHS, National Honor Society, and dual enrollment. At Wellmont, we offer all of the pieces that make school a training ground of the heart, not just a place to take a class or two. Students invest at Wellmont because they have the ability to plug into more than just their classes.
At Wellmont Academy, we focus first on developing the whole student, with a constant inclusion of a Christ-centered world-view in all subjects and activities, helping our students to focus on daily encounters with Christ. Our students learn to use their time and energy in a way that promotes personal growth, time management skills, academic excellence, and balance.
We are a Presence-driven school, meaning, we invite God's presence into all spaces of our lives and we encourage our students to do the same.
We are a soul-safe school. We believe strongly that the hearts of our students can only flourish when the culture around them feels safe. We have a TRUE zero-bullying tolerance, and actively encourage difficult conversations within safe, biblical boundaries.
At Wellmont Academy, we believe strongly in the use of textbooks. This is done with intention, to foster active alpha brain wave activity that promotes active not passive learning.
Students thrive, engaging in art, music, intramural sports, extracurricular activities, leadership opportunities and volunteering.
Finally, we consider of utmost importance, the role of the family, partnering with our parents to help our students become excellent in all things.
Lower Level Program
Our lower level program operates on an A/B Day schedule, allowing those students who qualify to attend only on A days and homeschool on B days, however all lower level classrooms operate with corporate teaching 5 days per week.
Our lower level classroom allow students to be with their own grade level, but also easily move to reading and math groups that fit their ability. Teams of lead teachers and teacher aides operate in concert in elementary classrooms 5 days per week so that our student-teacher ratio remains low.
Teachers are keenly aware of the needs of each student and have close relationships with parents to provide the foundation and structure that young students need to thrive and be ready for our upper level program.
Upper Level Program
Our upper level program offers standard and honors level courses as well as online dual enrollment for students who qualify. It operates on an A/B Day schedule as well, but is different than our lower level program.
A Days include core classes and electives and are lecture-driven and discussion-based. Hands on labs also occur on these days. Students adhere to a bell schedule and change classes every 50 minutes, allowing for 7 periods in the day. There are 3 A days per week.
B Days separate the day into larger blocks of time and include corporate and individual work sessions and mid-day electives. Students take time to focus on A Day core work during their Humanities and STEM blocks in the morning and afternoon, but also have time to enjoy elective additions mid-day.
Teachers work with students all day, and most students are able to finish their work at school so that evenings can be utilized for enrichment and rest.
Wellmont Academy specializes in training students with dyslexia to understand their brain, build on their strengths, and integrate into mainstreamed classrooms. We utilize 1-on-1 Orton-Gillingham tutoring to initiate this transformation, and offer services throughout the day for Wellmont students.
