Our mission at Core Academy is to nurture the next generation of faithful, Christ-like creation researchers to explore the hardest problems in creation.  We focus on mentoring students and young scholars, and we encourage them to go after the toughest questions out there.  We host annual retreats, sponsor a scholarship fund, and keep in personal contact with students all over the country.  We even stay connected with a few young scholars in Europe.

Two years after the wreck’s discovery, in May …
