About Us


How it all Began

Queen Amy (creator and director of the Royal Academy)  is married to King Von and they are the parents of 7 amazing children, 3 future queens and 4 future kings. We have added 2 more kings to the family and also have two beautiful princess grandbabies, with one more on the way.   We have been homeschooling for 18 years which is, in part, how this Royal Academy began.

As our oldest daughter and her friends hit the dating age, they wanted to learn the rules of etiquette and dating and proper relationships. We were inspired by the article, Our Refined Heavenly Home by Douglas Callister.  It became the inspiration and foundation for everything that followed.  What began as a small class turned into a weekend of classes, a banquet and a ball!  The first one was so popular it’s become an annual event and our numbers are growing every year.

We believe that we are all divine children of our Heavenly Father, King of Heaven and Earth.  Therefore, we all have the potential to become like Him, hence, future kings and queens.  We also believe that a large part of our mission on earth, individually and collectively, is to prepare for the coming of our Savior by building Zion.

We hope you will join us in our mission of refinement and strengthening our youth in understanding their divine roles.

Amy is a certified etiquette trainer for teens and for children.


Meet the Team

One of the funnest parts of this event is the opportunity for me to work with my children.  It has been especially enjoyable to watch as my two daughters grew and married and my other children grew up and came and participated and helped.  It has been a fabuous learning experience for all of us.  I am so appreciative of all the support and love that my family has given me over the years as we put on this event.  It truly would not happen without them! Here are the ones that have attended with us.  I also have to send love and thanks to those who have had to stay home and are waiting their turn to come!


Maren and Jarom

My oldest child and her husband. She is the one that inspired us all to dive in and create something from which we could all learn!



Alyssa and Cody

They have both been an integral part of the planning and execution of the event every year!  We are grateful to now have Cody as an eternal part of our family!


Betty and Bob


My parents have watched my children behind the scenes for me for years.  Then they got to come and participate and have been two of my greatest supporters all along the way!


Peter and Nathanael

Watching my boys grow into gentlemen as they have helped and participated, has been one of the great rewards of the years of events.
