I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou
shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. Psa 32:8

Benefits to Attending a Christian School
The world debates…… Christian School vs. Public School. Allow us the opportunity to point out five important facts to consider…..
1. FCA teaches that the Bible is the guidebook for our lives and that a personal relationship with God is the way of escape from the difficult issues in life.
2. FCA students receive a quality education. Our academic philosophy concurs with the Bible by teaching precept upon precept. FCA offers small classes with personalized instructions. Children are not pushed through school -- mastery of concepts is required before advancement.
3. The administration of FCA hand selects students and families that are like-minded with the philosophy of FCA. Our motto is, “A Christian School for the Christian Family”.
4. FCA has taken every precaution possible through screening and our interviewing process to provide a safe, Christian environment.
It is our desire and commitment to partner with our parents to provide a quality education which encourages each child to grow academically, socially and physically as well as spiritually. The staff are all Christians and model Christian life before the students. Our staff treats children with love, respect and dignity.
In addition to academics, school is a place where children can develop a good work ethic through day to day classroom activities and responsibilities. Education is a tool that is used to teach character and values. One definition of education is instruction in truth. The Bible teaches that all of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Christ Jesus (Col. 2:3) and true wisdom comes from God (James 1:5). Therefore children of all ages need the Lord and need to be taught to seek knowledge and wisdom from the Lord in every factor of life, including academics.
FCA is a Christian school for the Christian family.
The vision of FCA is to teach and training children and young people to be young people of integrity, responsible and apt to teach and learn. We believe schools and teachers are given the unique opportunity to be used by God to mold and encourage young people to become all they can be for the Lord. We also believe Christian schools and teachers must have strong values and standards of excellence. Therefore, the student body of FCA is carefully selected through the application and the parent and child interview process to find families of like purpose, direction and passion.

Statement of Faith
According to the IRS, FCA must have a Statement of Faith. The directors and administration understands and does not expect all staff of FCA to believe or totally agree with the Statement of Faith, but all staff must be able to support and not oppose the Statement of Faith. The administration of FCA focus’ on the major—leaving the minor to individuals. FCA believes if one studies out the Word of God, they will be able to do so. The Bible is the inspired Word of God and instructs man in the daily living, attitudes and lifestyles pleasing to God. The gospel is Jesus' death, burial and resurrection. It is obeyed through repentance, water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus and infilling of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking with tongues, as the Spirit of God moves upon us.
FCA admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, and /or religion. Each student is granted the same rights and privileges, allowing the same opportunities to enlist in any program or activity, including educational policies, admission, scholarship programs, and athletic or other school administered programs.
First Christian Academy attempts to serve a large cross-section of children accepting students with average and above average performance/abilities. Students are accepted based on character as well as personal goals and values.
