Grades 6-8 are a time of considerable transition and change. As the bridge between childhood and adulthood – physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually –there is much at stake. Faith Christian Academy’s Middle School faculty and staff understand the pressures of these years and create a safe, loving environment where each child can grow in grace, wisdom and truth (Luke 2:52).
We educate our middle school students in biblical truth and practical biblical wisdom, teaching all subjects from a biblical worldview. We also provide a rich variety of academic programs to meet a broad range of interests and needs, giving every student the opportunity to explore, develop and discover.
The goals of our middle school program are to partner with Christian families to build on the foundation laid at home and at church and to prepare students for the high school experience ahead. Faith Christian Academy Middle School students are building their foundation for life-long learning. They are challenged to build a foundation in the core subjects of Math, English, and Science while developing a love for Bible, History, Computers, and Physical Education.
Philosophy of Curriculum
The curriculum at Faith Christian Academy is chosen with much prayer and research. Nothing is to be presented to the students that could undermine their faith. All truth is God’s truth; therefore, every subject taught must have biblical principles at its core.
Christian education is an alliance of the Christian home, the Bible-believing local church, and the school. It is the purpose of Faith Christian Academy to assist the home and the church, never to usurp their authority. We must provide a support structure that helps to form and nurture vibrant Christian citizens.
Philosophy of Teaching and Technology
Faith Christian Academy places a high importance on the academic success of each student. We have a balanced approached to the complete education of the child and have developed a strategic use of curriculum that exposes each student to varied pedagogical perspectives. Technology is incorporated into each classroom, but we take the focus away from the technology itself and place it directly on the learning and teaching it facilitates.
FCA blends the approach of traditional education with modern technology to prepare students to succeed spiritually, physically, and academically.
