Note: All of our Academies, whether National or Regional, are open to students 16 to 25 years old from around the country.

Students are responsible for their own travel arrangements and costs.

Patriot Academy’s purpose is to inspire, educate, train, and equip young leaders who share the stated mission of The Torch of Freedom Foundation to restore America’s Constitutional Republic by renewing our Biblical principles of liberty upon which the nation was built. Applicants must demonstrate a desire to fulfill this mission and to learn more about how such a mission would be accomplished and what role they might play in this effort. Applicants must also demonstrate a strong work ethic and a willingness to earn their way through preparation, funding, and servant leadership.

Reasons for an applicant to not be accepted to Patriot Academy

1. Not in the 16-25 age range or lacking the maturity to function at a high level in the intensity of a Patriot Academy Session.

2. Demonstrably opposed to the basic principles taught at Patriot Academy. The Patriot Academy staff strives to distinguish between an applicant developing their worldview, but open to study and learning more about founding principles; as opposed to a student who has rejected founding principles and is actively working against them.

3. Publicly violating basic morals in such a way that would bring disrespect upon Patriot Academy.

4. Lack of personal responsibility and initiative in completing the application process or preparation required before attending Patriot Academy.

Applicants over 25 years of age may attend the Citizen Track at the Texas Patriot Academy.

If you are contributing money for a particular student when you get to the question “What is this payment/donation for?” choose “Contribute to A Student’s Tuition” and enter the Student Name.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING

“Patriot Academy gave me so many life skills that I can use, even if I do not pursue a career in government. I learned how to take issues that are important to me and really make a difference with them in our government. I made friendships that will last a lifetime.”
