Give the Gift of Christ Academy This Christmas

Not sure what to give the theologically-minded high school student in your life? This Christmas, consider giving the gift of Christ Academy: Timothy School (men) or Christ Academy: Phoebe School (women). Split into two different schools, the high school academy takes place on the Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne (CTSFW), campus for two weeks in early summer, from June 14–27, 2020. Open to high-school-aged students from ages 13-18, the academy is an opportunity for these young men and women to study theology, build lasting friendships with confessional Lutherans their age, and consider whether they would like to begin planning for a future as a pastor or deaconess.

Students take classes taught by CTSFW faculty and other ordained ministers, gather four times daily in liturgical, Christ-centered worship in Kramer Chapel, and pack the rest of their hours with fun. Housing and food are provided on campus, with a handful of mission opportunities and a baseball game that will take them off campus and into the wider Fort Wayne community. The students of both schools attend some classes together, but much of their learning is separated to allow them to focus on their specific vocations as young men and women in Christ.

Attendance for the two weeks costs $650, which is all-inclusive, covering tuition, housing, meals, and all off-campus activities. Returning students are eligible for $100 discount if they apply by December 31, 2019. As space is limited, students must fill out an application to be considered for admittance. To apply, go to:

We’ll begin processing applications on January 15, with deadlines closing on May 1, 2020.
