What do you mean by “a biblical worldview”?
We teach that God is our Creator and Sustainer of all things, therefore teach all subjects through the Bible as our standard of Truth. Read more about our core values.
Are students required to wear uniforms?
We do not require uniforms, but we do offer dress code guidelines:
Preschool students may wear play-style clothes and tennis shoes or sneakers. Elementary, middle, and high school students may wear slacks, shorts, or skirts (for girls) and oxfords or polos. More detailed information can be found in the Parent Portal or by contacting the Main Office.
Does the school have a cafeteria?
In the elementary grades, the children eat in their classroom. This creates genuine interaction with their teachers and gives opportunities to encourage good social manners. Families may pre-order lunches for Wednesdays and Fridays in support of various fundraisers.
The upper school students (grades 6-12) eat lunch in the multi-purpose room on campus, allowing them to connect with both students and teachers and grow as a student body.
When does the school year begin and end?
School begins in the middle of August and ends each year by the end of May.
Is the school associated with any church or denomination?
No. Faith Christian Academy is a non-denominational school with no affiliation to a single church. Our campus includes students and families come from a wide range of faith backgrounds.
What curriculum do you use?
We have established a set of objectives for each grade level, based on research of state SOL documents, various curriculums, and other third party education sources, and have chosen textbooks that best match those objectives. Our textbook publishers include ABeka, Bob Jones University Press, Saxon Math, Concordia Publishers, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Prentice Hall, and Purposeful Design (ACSI).
Are the students bussed to school?
We offer bus service to the Chatham area. Other families who live closer to campus often carpool together.
Can parents observe their child’s classes?
Parents are always welcome to visit their children at school, although we ask that you call ahead so that we can maintain the daily routines.
