Where Our Goal Fuels the Methods...

“Shut out every other consideration and keep yourself before God for this one thing only—

My Utmost for His Highest"


Utmost Academy - Foundations

Hi, My Name Is Deborah

After 13 years of homeschooling my three children while working another part-time "career", I fell in love with watching learners take on their own challenges and renew their confidence to take the next step forward in their journey, from academics to their walk with God.

At Utmost Academy, I am excited to join alongside a team of wonderful, dedicated, and gifted tutors and families who all share this common vision and heart for your learner as well as their own. We never grow tired of the process of watching learners gain a deeper relationship with academics, the created world, and their Heavenly Father.

As our organization grows to serve more and more students in the Tri-cities area, we are excited to work alongside families like yours. Our mission is to help students excel through instruction, Biblical wisdom, and encouragement while challenging them to grow in dignity, courage, and perseverance. We thank you for the opportunity to serve your family this year.

Ms. Deb

Statement of Faith

  1. There is only one holy, eternal God consisting of the Trinity of the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit, and these Three are One. Jesus Christ is God wrapped in flesh. After He was crucified for our sins, He arose from the dead and will return in His glory to claim this earth for God’s kingdom.

  2. The Bible is the only inspired, inerrant, written Word of God to the world, speaking to us absolute Truth with complete authority over every aspect of life and eternity. We are to study it, memorize it, and wisely live out the principles contained therein.

  3. True salvation does not occur through traditions, sacraments, baptism, or good works. The human race is lost in sin and cannot be made right with our holy God by his/her own efforts. We are rescued from sin and eternal separation from God only by calling on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ in repentance and faith, trusting that He alone can rescue us from the penalty and corruption of sin. We are then "born again" to live a new life through dependence on the power of the Holy Spirit.

  4. All believers in our Lord Jesus Christ are to live in unity as one body, the Church. Jesus is the Head of the Church in which we fellowship, serve, and grow as a family in our faith and knowledge of the Scriptures with the goal of becoming more like Jesus in every way. We are called to love Jesus and one another as we allow His life to flow in and through us.
