Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:5).
Academic excellence is the goal of every classroom at Frederick Christian Academy. It is attained by having qualified teachers who know and care about each student in their classroom and by challenging them to reach their potential. Also, our low student-to-teacher ratio allows us to motivate children in an optimal learning environment.
The elementary academic curriculum focuses on Reading, Arithmetic, Bible, Science, English, Heritage Studies, and Penmanship. In addition, students from K5-6th grade receive Spanish instruction weekly. The secondary students continue their studies in the standard academic subjects, take 2 years of Spanish as a requirement of graduation, and are offered a variety of academic electives, including accounting, government, and physics. The majority of textbooks used at FCA are published by either Bob Jones University Press or A Beka Book Publications. Both of these publishers are well known for their high academic standards as well as their Biblically-based philosophy of education. All subject matter is presented as God’s truth and exalts God as the Creator and Sustainer of life, as well as our Redeemer.
Students have a wide variety of specials every week, which include physical education, computers, art, library (elementary students), choir, and music theory. In addition to these, drama and life skills classes are offered to secondary students. Students also participate in a statewide competitive fine arts program that begins in the early elementary grades and continues through the high school.
Students experience Spanish with Mrs. Regner, Computers with Mrs. Salsi, Art with Mrs. Bindewald (elementary) and Mrs. Davis (secondary), Library with Mrs. Stanton and Mrs. Hurdle, Choir with Mrs. Regner (elementary) and Miss Hayes (secondary), Music Theory with Mrs. Salsi, and Drama with Miss Hayes.
