The Adventure Academy

 

About Randy

I am a husband to an amazing wife (Leah) and a father to three awesome kids.  I live and work in the Phoenix, AZ area. I have been in education for over 14 years.  I have been a teacher, a coach, a tutor, as well as many other hats along the way. Growing up on a small farm in Texas, I have seen first-hand how real learning takes place in the context of real life.  During that time my parents homeschooled me and my siblings. Some of the greatest lessons I carry with me today took place within the relationships of my family on that farm.

As a parents, my wife and I want to build learning into the fabric of our family.  We strive to incorporate those same lessons and principles we both learned growing up into the daily life around my own home.

Throughout my years in education, I have seen the need for two major things:

 

  • Stronger family units
  • Better preparation for our kids to enter the real world

 

In 2012 I began fitting the pieces together to bring the principles of life on the farm into education to help solve these two needs.  That has led to Adventure Academy.

Today, I work hard to bring families together through experiential, family-based education.  I can honestly say that Adventure Academy is for my family as much as it is your family. I am confident that, with each member of the Adventure Academy family, we can build a world-class community of people who can change the face of education.
