Heartland Christian Academy is a behavior modification facility located in Newark, Missouri [1]

Program structure

Because the state of Missouri regards a person of 17 years of age as an adult, the program wants children aged 15 and half or lower.

Education

The facility uses the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) workbook curriculum provided by School of Tomorrow [2]. School of Tomorrow requries that just one person in an entire school be "certified" to use the curriculum. This certification is NOT from any state agency. It is issued by School of Tomorrow. This enables schools to use the curriculum without having any certified teachers by the State.

Consequences

This facility use corporal punishment

That discipline has included paddlings and, in one instance, forcing misbehaving youngsters to stand in piles of manure. According to an article in Jefferson City News-Tribune it is stated:

Charles Sharpe has said such treatment was appropriate, given his unwavering belief that America's youths are falling prey to drugs, sex and violence because public institutions are godless and parents have spared the rod of corporal punishment.

In a interview given in a article on People the founder stated [3]:

"The only thing these kids understand is pain," says Sharpe, 79. "We've created a society where the kids are in charge, and it's causing a complete breakdown." Adds his wife, Laurie, 47, who runs the girls' dormitory: "Swatting [paddling] is biblical. You have to teach a child to live right."

In the News

Around 2001 the state of Missouri started an investigation due to suspicion about child abuse at the facility, where the founder and several staff members were acused. The founder was cleared of child abuse because paddling is not considered abuse [4] [5] [6]
