Welcome, thank you for your interest in Patriot Academy. PA is for young leaders (men and women), ages 16-25. The Citizen Track (only offered in TX) is for those over 25 (more information here). Every Session of Patriot Academy has extremely limited availability, so you should apply early to increase the likelihood of acceptance. Applications may be received until session space is full. *To qualify for discounted rates, please note the “full tuition submission postmark/online payment” deadlines. Your spot is not guaranteed until all registration requirements and complete tuition payment is received.

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 study, fundraising, 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 study required before attending Patriot Academy.


I loved the experience that the Patriot Academy gave me. I definitely want to return to the Academy again!
