Founded in 1990, Family Christian Academy continues strong with its mission to “Strengthen Families and America’s future through Christ-Centered Home Education.”

Our program is based on over 20 years of research and experience. We are dedicated to helping parents reclaim responsibility for every aspect of their children’s upbringing, especially their children’s education. Home education promotes creativity for parents and a love of learning for children. We believe parents love their children and are a gift from God. For this reason, parents are best suited to teach, guide and discipline them. Home education has been tested and found to be a huge success. Research now shows that, on average, children who are home educated actually perform better than their public or private school counterparts. This is not surprising since tutoring has always been recognized to be the best method of education. There are many excellent reasons for choosing to teach your children at home. It is our belief that parent-directed education will:

  • Connect all of learning with the truth of Scriptures and give your child a true, unified view of the world, instead of learning bits and pieces of different subjects.
  • Provide time and flexibility to explore God-given interest and talents.
  • Allows you to personally build your child’s self-confidence and develop mature social skills.
  • Promotes family unity and constantly builds the all-important relationships with parents and siblings.
  • Allows you to educate without peer pressure and destructive temptations.
  • Allows you to guide your child at his or her own pace, making sure each step is fully mastered.

Family Christian Academy has graduated thousands of students over the years and we exist to help your family step by step through the home education journey. Our services include requesting records from your child’s previous school, guiding you through placement testing and helping you choose the best curriculum for your family’s needs. To further enrich and complete your home educating experience, FCA provides Fine Arts Friday classes, Tutoring services, Online Academy, Homeschool Tutorial classes for K _-12th grade students and we host several field trips throughout the year. Members of FCA receive a 10% discount on books and curricula sold through FCA’s on-campus or online bookstores, and FCA teachers pay no sales tax on their academic purchases. At every point along the way, we are just a phone call or mouse click away. We are here to make your home educating experience a great success!

[/et_pb_tab][et_pb_tab title=”Laws” tab_font_select=”default” body_font_select=”default”]

Home schooling laws vary from state to state. Although Family Christian Academy’s academic and attendance requirements meet or exceed those of most states, it is the responsibility of parents wishing to enroll their students in FCA to become informed regarding the laws of the state in which they live. Philosophically, FCA is on record as supporting the right of parents to home educate using whatever program they choose.
A word of caution: Families who are in compliance with the home school laws of their state may still be visited by government officials who either do not know the law or who have decided to reach beyond the law to punish home educators for not sending their children to public school. For this reason, FCA highly recommends that every home educating family join the Home School Legal Defense Association and purchase, at an affordable cost, legal insurance for their family. This organization has been defending home educating families for many years. It is familiar with the laws of every state and even helped write many of them. If a member of FCA decides not to join HSLDA and is contacted by a governmental authority, FCA recommends the following: • Do not become afraid. Authorities sometimes use incorrect information to frighten families into making decisions that might actually keep the family from being able to home educate. • Know your Homeschooling Law. It is amazing how simply knowing the law arms you with authority. • Tenessee families: When enrolling with FCA you become an FCA teacher, teaching at a satellite campus of a church-related school. Your student becomes a student of FCA and your home becomes a satellite campus of FCA. We do not recommend that you call yourself a “homeschooler” or say that you are “homeschooling” as the Tennessee law has additional requirements for those referring to themself with these terms. The Tennessee law gives homeschooling parents three options. We recommend that you read the entire law by clicking on the Tennessee link, but here it is in abbreviated form: Option 1: You can homeschool if you notify the Public School. Parents are also required to have a highshool diploma or GED to teach a K-8th grade student and have a baccalaureate degree to teach 9th-12th grade students. Students are required to take an achievement test with their local public school in grades 5,7 and 9. Option 2: You can homeschool with a church related school but you must also register with the local Public School if you have a 9th-12th grade student. Parents are also required to have a highshool diploma or GED to teach a K-8th grade student and have a baccalaureate degree to teach 9th-12th grade students. Students are requred to take an achievment test with their local church-related school in grades 9-12. Option 3: You can homeschool if you operate as a Satellite Campus of a church-related school, and do not consider yourself a homeschooler. Parents are not required to obtain a certain level of education in order to teach their children and achievement testing is not required. FCA recommends that you adhere to Option 3, meaning that by enrolling with FCA you have met the requirements of the Tennessee state law. FCA requirements are that you teach 180 days, 4 hours per day and that you submit the attendance and progress reports by the required due dates (Jan 15 & July 15). You are not required to test, however FCA offers testing services. We believe that each parent teaching their children should make this decision instead of being forced to comply with testing when it is not in the best interest of all children. We do however require that all student’s graduating from our program have a miniumum test score in order to qualify to recieve an FCA approved diploma, those not qualifying or not desiring to test may receive an FCA parent directed diploma. • Never allow an official into your home! If you speak to the official at all, do so outside your home.
