As a Christian organization, Mount Dora Children’s Home emphasizes spiritual training as a vital part of each individual’s life, both children and adults. Our staff, including house parents and social workers, worship alongside single parents and children at local churches each week.
In our residential services for children, house parents’ guide children in devotionals, and Bible study. Prayer to give thanks to God is emphasized at meals. Within the Single Parents Program, single parents are encouraged to grow spiritually and to cultivate a positive spiritual environment at home for their children.
At Mount Dora Christian Academy, students also take Bible classes at all grade levels, participate in daily chapel, and learn to serve others through community service projects.
Education, Sports, and Recreation
Every child is supported in identifying opportunities to explore and enhance his or her education, sports, and recreational interests. Most children in our services (must be determined eligible) attend Mount Dora Christian Academy, located on the same campus with Mount Dora Children’s Home.
We are one of few Christian children’s homes equipped to provide a well-rounded, academically sound education at all grade levels in an accredited Christian academy. We believe this offers significant advantages for children receiving services. Developing self-esteem, physical strength, and social skills is also important. Our children participate in extracurricular activities offered by the academy including competitive athletics programs, music, and drama. Mount Dora Christian Academy is a K-12 school accredited by the National Christian School Association and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
