Patriot Academy

Rick Green started the Patriot Academy as a means of educating our youth to be leaders and further the kingdom of God. After his freshman year as a state Representative it became clear to Rick that there were more politicians than patriots in government positions. 

Patriot Academy is not just for those seeking government positions, but for everyone. This program was originally set up for sixteen through twenty five years, but due to popular demand for classes for those over twenty five, Rick has obliged them. Currently registration is open for the upcoming session which begins July 30, 2012 through August 4, 2012 at the Texas State Capital in Austin Texas.

"Students will participate in fast-paced, interactive workshops on media relations, public speaking, campaigning techniques and the Founding Fathers’ philosophy of government. Current and former elected officials and experts share their personal experience in government and discuss today’s most relevant issues."

 There are forty seats available at this time. An application must be sent in and the individual accepted, there is no payment until after acceptance. Once accepted you have two weeks to send in the $50 deposit, if not received within the time frame your position will be given to someone else. However, you can reply going through the whole application process again. The total amount of $900 is due by May 15, 2012 after that payment must be made by July 1, 2012 at $995.

I know it seems like a lot of money, but I had the opportunity to speak with a rep at a local homeschool conference and this is what she said. They encourage the individuals to make the money and give them suggestions on how to do it.
