Goodland Academy is a year-round K-12 individualized self-paced education program for both day and residential students regardless of socio-economic status.
Goodland was founded by early Presbyterian missionaries in 1848 and maintains covenant relationship with the PCUSA to this day. Goodland is governed by a self-appointing board of trustees from various states.
Goodland strives to balance educational tradition with innovation and to foster the development of values as an integral part of intellectual growth. It seeks to promote the open exchange of ideas and the independent pursuit of learning.
Goodland aspires to be a community of persons from diverse backgrounds who respect and affirm the dignity of all people. It is a community where a mature understanding of the Christian faith and lives of service are nurtured and students are encouraged to work toward a just and peaceful world.
The purpose of a Goodland education is to help its students attain their full potential as persons, to develop in them a capacity and passion for lifelong learning, and to prepare them for fulfilling lives of leadership and service in society.
