Students entering our academic program undergo a placement test to determine their exact learning levels. This allows FCA to completely customize your child’s learning experience and place them right where they need to be to succeed.
We offer a small, multi-level classroom environment that provides your student with a caring enviroment and personal attention. Many parents have found that tutorial support is an asset to their children.
FCA performs the lesson planning, teaching, and grading for its students while they are on campus and communicates with the parents through assignment forms about school work that needs to be completed at home. Classes for the core curriculum subjects such as: Bible, Math, Language Arts, Science and History are taught daily, Monday – Thursday from 8:30am-3:30pm. Enrichment classes are offered every Friday (see pages 14-15 for more details). Please visit the website (www.familychristiancademy.com) for a complete schedule of on campus classes.
Our flexible program allows you to choose a plan that’s best for your family. As a parent, if you need support academically, we offer an academic program every Monday-Thursday, you pick the days that are best for you. We also offer a great Fine Arts program every Friday. Classes begin in the fall and end in the summer.
FCA recognizes that God has ordained the parent be the primary educator of the child, therefore, the school will partner with the parent in the educational process. This teamwork approach provides the ideal situation where the student, parent, and teachers are all working together to obtain the same goal. Our goal is not to replace the responsibility of the home, but to help in that responsibility. Therefore, each student should have a parent supervising him/her while completing assignments at home the other days of the week. FCA’s Homeschool Tutorial Classes are only an extension, not a replacement, for the home.
