L O W E R S C H O O L
Students’ earliest school years set the stage for their entire education experience. The Lower School enrolls students from four-year-old pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. These are the most formative years in a child’s life. Our trained teachers are dedicated to loving kids, speaking life, and developing lifelong learners who enjoy school and are confident achievers. Our curriculum is academically challenging and leads children to an understanding of a Biblical worldview. In addition to performance-proven programs in reading, writing, math, science, and social sciences, FCA’s lower school education also includes:
• Classes in physical education, art, music library, and technology
• Field trips and interactive special events
• Resource Room for students who need additional support
Jesus insisted that children be given unlimited access to Him. Because He is passionate about His connection with kids, we are too! Every day, FCA students learn about and grow their relationship with Jesus Christ through:
• Bible-integrated curriculum, including scripture memorization and daily prayer
• Weekly chapel with worship and teaching for students’ age level
• Opportunities to help people in need
Life is bigger than a classroom, and there’s much to experience beyond the Pre K-Grade 5 curriculum. From the parking lot to the playground, from small class sizes to before-and-after-school care, Faith Christian Academy is committed to providing a safe and nurturing place for the unique needs of children. Our desire is for every child to know he or she is valuable, loved, and can be successful!
