Academic Program

"All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children's peace." Isaiah 54:13

Curriculum

FCA's school board and staff are dedicated to ensuring that our students have the best curriculum available that holds a Christ centered view. In a time when the public school system is working so hard to exempt Christ from all their teachings, we are working to keep Him at the center of our teachings. While Christ remains the center, our curriculum will be academically rich in Math, Language Arts, Reading and all other educational courses offered.

Focusing on the core areas of academics, we will use a variety of effective approaches to meet the individual needs of each student in the classroom. Because of the diverse learning styles among students, and the implementation of the seven intelligences, FCA uses a variety of curriculum to ensure the success of each child.

Pre-K Program

Our Pre-K program is designed to prepare children for their kindergarten year using a variety of interactive and fun approaches to learning such as: Animated Literacy Phonics, Kids of the Kingdom Theme Units, Abeka Christian Curriculum, fine and gross motor skill training, social skill development, and Bible stories and Christian values.

It is a Christ centered environment and a rich educational experience in which all children will grow academically and spiritually. Our Pre-K students learn basic readiness skills in reading, writing and math using kinesthetic, musical, direct and social approaches. They develop basic social skills in sharing, listening and following class routines throughout the year. They learn basic bible stories and character development using the Word of God as the guideline for teaching.

K-12th Grade

Our grade level classes are taught by qualified teachers who desire to see each child grow academically and spiritually. The teachers have a love for Jesus and want to express that love to each child through a nurturing and biblically based classroom. Using the curriculum and teaching methods that FCA implements they are adept at modifying for the needs of each student.

Each student is valued for their God-given talents and abilities and encouraged to strive for the highest goals. They are challenged academically and given high expectations so they are able to reach their highest potential. Each classroom uses direct instruction, small-group instruction and cooperative learning to enhance the curriculum

Students are encouraged to seek the Lord with all their hearts in all matters to know His will and purpose in each situation. Through the use of practice and reflection, they are brought to a better understanding of the Word of God and who Christ is in their lives.

Fine Arts

The Fine Arts Program at FCA includes a variety of opportunities for students ranging from General Arts to Choir, Drama, Guitar, and Piano.

Each student is valued for their God-given abilities and we will work to enable them to identify and cultivate those talents for His ministry and service.

Athletics

FCA athletics helps to fulfill the mission of the school by teaching a Christian way of competing expressed through our core vision in athletics:

•Respect authority
•Overcome adversity with Christ likeness
•Serve others
•Develop a love and desire to please God
•Play in a way that brings God glory
•Be leaders on campus and in our community
•Have fun, play smart, play hard

FCA acknowledges that God is the priority in our school, followed by family, academics, and finally athletics. When this order is followed, it will result in student-athletes who are balanced spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Since FCA athletes are representatives of their team, their school, their community and more importantly, God, FCA athletics is committed to developing each individual's character and self –esteem. In addition, a proper perspective on winning and losing consistent with glorifying God is maintained. FCA athletes will be humble in victory, and courageous in defeat. Winning is defined as reaching the maximum potential by giving great effort as an individual, and as a team.

We play in the Arizona Independent Christian Schools League with other Christian schools in the Phoenix area.
