Journey Education a private K-8th Grade school in Las Vegas, Nevada, was built from small and humble beginnings. Founders, Cindy Jensen and Becky Jensen, were looking for the best education they could find for their own children. As their search continued, a vision began to form of a school – a school that educated and developed the whole child while also preparing him or her for higher education. A school that nurtures while also teaching the necessary skills to live a fulfilling life. After much research and foot work, Cindy and Becky decided to go outside of the traditional education box and formed Journey Education. In the beginning, Journey Education was not unlike those one-room schools from the early 1900’s. Classes took place in a renovated home turned schoolhouse with just 12 students. Cindy and Becky wanted a small school that could devote individual attention to each student. This was the perfect way to accomplish their vision. As word of mouth spread, Journey began to grow. Currently we are in our ninth full year and have relocated to a beautiful building located at 2710 South Rainbow. Journey Education has maintained its original ideals of small class sizes and individual attention. We are a non-denominational Christian school and we promote Christian values. With the help of teachers, parents, and staff our students are more than ready to face the world when they leave Journey Education. Journey students learn the tools needed to become great leaders among their peers and community. They have the education and skills they need to excel in school. We are proud of where Journey began and look forward to seeing where Journey will go in the future! Journey is operated as an exempt school under the provision of NRS 394.211 and as such is exempt from the provisions of the Private Elementary and Secondary Education Authorization Act.
My son, like all children, was born with a "love of learning." As he started progressing in the school district, he became bored, complacent, and restless. His "love of learning" quickly deteriorated and began to manifest as behavioral issues that included acting out and an apathy toward learning, the answer was simple. Find a school that challenged him enough to feed his "love of learning", acknowledge his individuality, and guide him to "do the right thing". I found this in Journey. Journey brings out the best in every child by tapping into their individual strengths, while creating an environment of kindness, responsibility, and leadership. The small student/teacher ratio allows children to focus on specific areas of educational need. Our family is so grateful for our Journey family.
