About

Harkening back to the grace and grandeur of the era which knew such giants as, Abraham Lincoln, John Taylor, and Wilford Woodruff, this charming old building, originally built in 1891, original home of the Union Hotel will soon hold within her well-loved walls this fall, the Kimber Academy of Lehi. Dedicated to God, Family and Country, this Academy helps support parents as they instill these time honored values in the lives of their Families. Come take a tour of our charming old building and discover if Kimber Academy is right for your Family!

 

RESTORATION:

Kimber Academy is a restoration program. To understand restoring, one must understand that to restore and bring back life into something, something must have drifted, been changed, or is now corrupted. True education must be rooted in correct virtuous principles. Weak standards distort and destroy our efforts to improve ourselves, strengthen our families, build our communities, and secure our peace and happiness.

We believe the Founding Fathers were correct in their beliefs that God should be the foundation of education. In our young nation, the Bible was used as a textbook for the purpose of teaching children moral principles to live by. We also believe through the prophet Joseph Smith that the correct principles of education have been given, and now need to be restored.  The revelations of God contain the answers to the hotly debated educational, cultural, societal and political issues of our time. We are dedicated to building on the rock of this revelation. By returning back to and improving and perpetuating these revealed principles as our foundation, we believe the Lord will entrust a new generation to take fire through a reawakening stretching across the world!
