Instructional Focus:
We place a strong emphasis on providing a well-rounded education for our students. This includes not only core academic subjects such as reading, math, science, and social studies, but also elective classes in areas like Spanish, computer keyboarding/coding, and the arts.

We also prioritize the integration of a biblical worldview into all aspects of our curriculum and hold regular chapel services to encourage spiritual growth.

Reading Curriculum:
In reading, we use a balanced literacy approach that includes a variety of techniques such as whole-group instruction, small-group work, and independent reading. Our goal is to help students develop a love for reading and become proficient, lifelong learners.

Math Curriculum:
Our math instruction uses a hands-on learning approach that allows students to engage actively with and explore mathematical concepts. This helps to make the subject more relatable and meaningful for our students.

Science and Social Studies:
In science and social studies, we use a project-based learning approach that encourages students to apply their knowledge to real-world situations. This helps to make these subjects more interactive and engaging for our students.

To support our student's learning, we provide access to technology such as iPads and Chromebooks. We have a 1:1 device ratio, meaning that each student has their own device to use in class and at home. We also have a STEAM lab equipped with robots and a 3-D printer, as well as interactive TV panels in our K-2nd grade classrooms.

Our teachers are all certified and committed to ongoing professional development to stay up-to-date on the latest teaching methods and technologies. We also have a mentoring program in place to provide support and guidance for newer teachers.

Elective Classes:
In addition to our core academic subjects, we offer a variety of elective classes to allow students to explore their interests and discover new passions. These classes include Spanish, computer keyboarding/coding, STEAM, visual arts, music, physical education, fine arts, integrity dance, musical theater, band, orchestra, choir, guitar, and athletics. We offer a wide range of sports options to allow all students to find a sport that interests them.

Middle & High School Academics

Faith Christian Academy carefully selects curriculum through multiple publishers looking for ways to integrate a biblical worldview. Our teachers play an important role in helping to choose appropriate curriculum and learning how to best present the curriculum in a way that fosters critical thinking and promotes high levels of rigor. Many of our academic subject curriculum stems from Christian-based companies, and in this way, promotes our goals of a solid Christian education.

FCA was named to the 2023 AP School Honor Roll! The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results and broadening access for students.
