Students inducted into honor society
May 10, 2016

Faith Christian Academy in Poughkeepsie held its third annual National Honor Society induction ceremony at its new Casperkill Campus located at 25 Golf Club Lane in the Town of Poughkeepsie. The inducted students are: Jordyn Britton, Isaac Sabado, Yuan (Sherry) Xue, Shijia Zhang, Iliana Soto, Madison Mackin, Eshaa Munder, Olivia Kamwela, Michael Averin, Sidney Beck and Alexandra Beck.

The students were inducted into the Bettie Damiani Chapter of the National Honor Society, which was named after the founder of the school. The chapter is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who have a cumulative average of 90 percent or higher. Recipients are elected based on their application, faculty council review, personal essay, letter of recommendation and academic standing.

“We take seriously the selection of those students who are inducted into the National Honor Society,” said Alex Averin, school headmaster. “We want to be sure the students uphold the Christian values of our own school and that they will maintain this excellence as members of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious student recognition program.”

Faith Christian Academy offers regular and honors level Regents courses that allow students to graduate with a New York State Regents or Advanced Regents Diploma.

Faith Christian Academy attained full accreditation by the Association of Christian Schools International and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools in 2012.
