Education choices can be complicated however the benefits of attending Petra are numerous. The education the children receive is truly unmatched in the valley. That being said, it does come at a price which is worth the cost. Students are held to a high standard and they are encouraged to excel. The teachers are warm, sincere and work diligently to provide an amazing atmosphere for learning each day. The sports program and athletic director are improving every year and the excitement is building. Without a doubt, I am extremely grateful that all four of my children have attended Petra during their schooling years. I would encourage anyone considering Petra to stop by for a visit and sit in a class or two. I guarantee you will leave having learned something!
I attended this fantastic school for several years during high school. I credit a lot of growth in my faith to the teachers and the amazing authors they exposed me to. To have to work hard on a thesis and spend hours reading great works of literature helped me learn to defend my personal views and rounded me out as a person. When we would sing matins in the morning, it was always so meaningful to me. We would sing songs together that have been in existence for centuries- it was constantly chilling, beautiful- something I can't quite describe. To have moments of routine where we would, collectively, lift up our voices to the Lord and pray was such a refreshing way to start the morning. I still open up George Herbert's poetry, C.S. Lewis' "Space Trilogy", or watch "Tree of Life" and am reminded of my high-school years at Petra where I now realize the Lord was constantly speaking sweetly to me and filling my soul with reminders of His love and mercy.
Petra is a fantastic choice for school for many reasons. The quality of education is phenomenal and the curriculum is tuned into how children best learn at each phase of childhood and then as they become young adults. I am amazed by what my kids have learned this past year. They come home singing songs from every subject which helps them memorize a lot of different information. They came from public school in a state known for their schools and I can say they are learning more now than in the past and they are learning differently. I love the classical education model and the way they are being helped to think. Watching them learn Latin, Violin, read classics, and write in cursive has been tremendous. Latin may be considered a dead language to many; however, the way it builds vocabulary for everyday life and helps teach history is extremely important. The fact that children as young as 3 or 4 and then through Senior year can get up on stage regularly and speak, sing, and act in front of an audience is priceless when you think about how many people in everyday life are petrified to speak in a public setting. The community at Petra is supportive, caring, well qualified to teach, and has offered a wonderful atmosphere in which to learn. They help your students in ways that go beyond just subjects being addressed in the classroom and help then interact in ways that will prepare them for life. The fact that morals and values are pulled through your child’s educational life has also been invaluable. I highly recommend Petra for all this and more.
This was a perfect choice for our daughter and PreSchool. Nothing but the kindest employees. The children always seem to have smiles on their faces. This school taught my daughter a lot, most importantly they taught her love, respect and kindness- something that is lacking in the public schools in BOZEMAN.
We are so thankful for this School! Our four kids have been attending Petra for eleven years and have felt challenged, encouraged, loved and supported. Our kids have been challenged to think critically, write persuasively, and articulate clearly. They have been taught to see issues from different perspectives. The teachers and staff at Petra are top notch! They are wonderful role models for our kids. They sacrifice so much by striving to create the best learning environment and they go the extra mile to communicate with parents and students. We are so grateful to have Petra play a big role in our kids formative years. Thank you to all who have made this possible!!!❤️
