Announcement About Biola Youth Academics and Torrey Academy

Biola Youth Academics (BYA), which includes Torrey Academy (TA), Star Academics, Private School Satellite Program (PSP) and Elementary Academics, will be closing at the end of this 2019-20 academic year, June 2020. Biola will, however, retain the Friday elementary clinicals led by the School of Education. The spring 2020 semester will be the last semester for all who are enrolled in Biola Youth Academics and Torrey Academy.

We appreciate the support of the Biola Youth Academics and Torrey Academy families throughout the history of the programs. BYA celebrated 20 years in 2016 and TA will celebrate 24 years in 2020. It has been a rich history of serving hundreds of K-12 students by providing academically rigorous programs from a biblical worldview. Thank you to all the current families and students and the many alumni from the programs.”

Under the direction of Robin Slagle, a new program called Star Homeschool Academy will launch in Fall 2020. Similarly, the Torrey Academy tutors, led by Jacob Waller and Anna Barber, will launch Emmaus Classical Academy in Fall 2020. Neither program will be affiliated with Biola University but both will closely follow the same educational models and biblical principles as Biola Youth Academics and Torrey Academy. If you are interested in more information regarding Star Homeschool Academy, please email robin.slagle@biola.edu. For more information regarding Emmaus Classical Academy, please email emmaus.classical.academy@gmail.com. For information regarding Eight-Week Clinic courses email flora.herrera@biola.edu.


All Biola Youth Academics courses are biblically centered. Secondary level courses are taught at a college preparatory level.

The course levels listed in parentheses (excluding Torrey Academy Classes) are guidelines. We realize that homeschoolers often cross grade-level "boundaries" for many subjects; therefore students are welcome to enroll in any class that suits their level of achievement. Please remember that our core courses are college preparation level.
