Curriculum

At FCA, we are continually assessing our curriculum to produce students who are able to compete academically and are prepared for high school and beyond.  Our teachers and students work together in an atmosphere of respect.  Utilizing creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration, students learn in an academically-challenging environment.  FCA uses accelerated Christian-based curriculum to teach students the foundational principles of core subjects, including:

  • Literature
  • Grammar/English
  • Writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • History
  • Critical thinking

Likewise, students are prepared with a Biblical foundation giving them a deeper understanding of God’s word.  Students will find many opportunities to strengthen their Christian walk through weekly Chapel, daily Bible instruction, and community outreach.  Students are offered a wide range of elective classes to enhance each student’s educational experience.

Staff

Our teachers at FCA are certified and highly qualified to teach grades 7-9.  FCA teachers make creating a safe environment for your children to excel academically a priority.
