One of the ways we nurture our students spiritually is through weekly chapel services. The K4 through 5th grade classes meet each Wednesday for a time of pledges, singing, and preaching. Several children have trusted Christ as their Savior during this weekly chapel time. The 6th through 12th grade classes meet on Wednesday in the Main Auditorium. These students are always challenged by great preaching from Pastor Powell, Bro. Chance Howard, local pastors, local youth pastors, and the pastoral staff from Faith Church. Chapel is one of most influential times during the school week at Faith Christian Academy.

Each September, Junior High and High School students attend a school retreat. The 6th through 8th grade classes experience a one day outing for the purpose of team building and leadership to start each school year. The 9th through 12th grade classes go to the Anchorage Camp in Lake Waccamaw, NC to experience a three day retreat. These school retreats are a great way for friendships to develop and classmates to bond as they spend time away from school while under the influence of good, wholesome preaching and fun‐filled activities. Long lasting, spiritual decisions are often made at these special retreats and events.

Throughout the school year, all students of FCA will embark on a field trip! Field trips are not just a break from the classroom routine – they are an essential part of a well-rounded education. By stepping outside the four walls, students gain firsthand experiences that textbooks and lectures cannot quite capture. Field trips make learning come alive, sparking curiosity and solidifying concepts in a way that sticks. They also provide access to things schools might not have, like historical artifacts or specialized equipment. The benefits go beyond academics – field trips build social skills as students navigate new environments together, and they foster a sense of wonder and appreciation for the world beyond the classroom.
