To provide free self-developmental training for all women, based on Christian principles. The Academy subscribes to a Holistic dichotomous approach in self-development; spiritual and physical. Women will be able to improve their identity, worth and boost their self-esteem, and be able to in turn affect others positively in the same regard.
The Academy is not officially accredited by any governing body, nor does it need to be. It falls under the section of the law where the government exempts religious organization from the need for formal Accreditation as it teaches skills to persons that do not require certification. You need certification to be an Engineer or a Nurse or a Beautician. But you do not need certification to be a well-developed woman, a spiritual woman, a woman of high self-esteem. These are characteristics that you develop on your own through life if you chose. We simply point you to the tools and information on how to get there. In other words, you are in a spiritual and physical grooming school. However, our Academy’s program is endorsed by many reputable religious entities who act as sponsors and/or partners. It is our intention, in the very near future, to acquire formal registration with Accrediting Christian establishments.
Materials & Resources:
The material we use are carefully researched and screened for the validity of their content. Most of our materials are found scourging the internet, which is a very reliable source to gain information on many topics these days. We research and see that the author is credible and has formal training and/or extensive knowledge in their area of expertise before we present the material to you. Most material we acquire is free and legal to use as long as it is clear who the author is. Most materials we use are from religious persons and/or organization, others are simply persons who have mastered their craft and their training do not violate our core principles in the Sorority.
Many women today did not get a chance to complete or even get a formal education, and many did not experience college life and to be able to take part in its aspects such as support from mentors and the fellowship from students and peers. The Esther Academy strives to either rebuild or offer this experience to our women. Sororities are usually formed in Colleges, so it is very fitting that the Epsilon Theta Gamma Sorority is indeed a part of its own college. Now women can experience college life and enjoy a healthy bonding with other women while being mentored on how to be the best that you can be!
Certification – Badges
The Academy offers certification to all our students, but it is for your own personal use. While it may not be able to qualify you for a job, it makes you better prepared to get one and to maintain great standards in keeping it and to perform well.
As a student progresses through the Academy, her progress is marked by what we call Academic Digital Badges. Badges are an acceptable and modern way to certify achievements and sent digitally. We award a different badge as each member progresses through and completes our program. All badges achieved are proudly located on each member’s profile page.
