MORE ABOUT PEACE ACADEMY & DARA STEPANEK

Peace Academy aspires to create holistic real world experiences in an eco-friendly and robust learning environment with the most comprehensive standards in the sciences, the humanities, and the arts. Their programs are designed for students to strengthen individuality, seek their potential, and maximize their opportunity to learn and contribute. While building bridges of respect among each other and the environment, students will experience the richness of coexisting among people of diverse faiths, cultures, and backgrounds. They believe that when children learn our fundamental similarities, an appreciation for our differences emerges. They model for the world how our differences make us stronger, how to build on each other’s strengths, and how coexistence is the pathway to peace.
