The elementary student of the month of May at Ignite Christian Academy is Jeshurun E’Zion. Jeshurun is a sixth-grade student here, who has been with the academy for 3 years after his beloved parents prayerfully searched online for an accredited Christian school to enroll him and his brother during the Covid-19 pandemic in the year 2020. Their former Christian schools shut down due to health and safety reasons. Since then, they have been Homeschooling because ICA has become the best for them in all aspects- and we love having them here!
The high school student of the month for May, is graduating senior, William Davidson. In his three years here at ICA, David has been incredibly active, making a significant impact on his peers and the faculty.

Our Ignite Christian Academy elementary student of the month is fifth grader, Jingling Qiu. Jingling has been at the academy for almost a year and a half, and also has a sister that attends ICA! The Christian values and biblical integration were what attracted their family to ICA, and we are happy to have them here!
The Ignite Christian Academy high school student of the month for April is 10th grader Yohan Lee. Yohan has been at ICA for nine months, and he likes the flexibility in time and location that ICA offers. Since he can expect what he will need to finish tomorrow, next week, and even next month, he can plan and work at his own pace according to his family’s schedule. Yohan’s family chose ICA when they were making the decision to move internationally to be a part of the Japanese missionary field. God led them to search for an online homeschooling program and prayerfully they chose ICA.
The elementary student of the month at Ignite Christian Academy is second grader Kyden Kettler who has been with ICA since kindergarten. His family likes the support he gets from his teachers when he needs them, and he was surprised by the number of times he can have meetings with his teachers. His parents learned about ICA from Kyden’s cousin, Kyle, who is a recent graduate of the academy, and they like that ICA is an accredited school.
The student of the month at Ignite Christian Academy (ICA) for the month of March is 10th grader Mae Hammersmith! Mae has been a student at ICA since September of 2022 when her family found ICA through another family who has been using this program.

The Ignite Christian Academy elementary student of the month for February is Dominick Dunmire. Dominick is an active student, often going on field trips, playing with his peers or going to the beach! Dominick lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia where he loves that he can swim for seven months out of the year. His family are also really close to the beach where they can go enjoy the boardwalk or the Atlantic Ocean. They also have lots of nature trails and exciting things to do all year round. If you don’t want to go to the beach during the tourist season, you can go to the mountains in North Carolina or head to the outer banks to enjoy some fun!
Mrs. Chastain nominated Dominick to be student of the month stating, “Not only does Dominick turn in wonderful work but he is helpful. He has been in several online classes with me and he is always encouraging the other students. He loves to give them tips on their work and cheer them forward. He is delightful and very inquisitive.”
February’s high school student of the month for Ignite Christian Academy is Naiden Tannehill. Naiden is an 11th grade student who has been with the academy for eight years!

Ignite Christian Academy is proud to celebrate senior Ashton DeVos as our first high school student of the month for 2023! Ashton lives in a small town in the western part of Nebraska with his family at a Christian camp, where his dad is the director. Living at the camp provides Ashton with opportunities to meet fun people and do fun things! Ashton also recently celebrated his birthday, on Christmas!
Ashton was nominated by his teacher, Mrs. Henn who described Ashton as a student who “consistently turns in high-quality, creative work and has a kind, clear, and intelligent sense of humor. He recently submitted a well-developed proposal for a video game based on navigating American Midwestern culture that was incisive, hilarious, and sounds very fun to play.
