  • Highly qualified prfessional faculty

  • Welcome parent involvement
  • Parent: "I really wanted an environment where the Word of God was the most important thing for forming my child's character.  I will say that FCA regards the Word of God highly and puts it first.  I also wanted my child in an environment of love.  Even if my child needs to be corrected, there is always encouragement and love that follows.  I really appreciate them and their love for my kids."
  • Parent: "I love the teachers at FCA.  They answer the phone by their first name.  Immediately, I felt that they were just family.  Whenever I have a problem or there is an issue, I feel like they can come to me and I can come to them and we can work through the issue.  It's amazing that if I have a problem, I can just call of the principal and talk with her.  She deals with issues as they come and she always uses the Word of God as her guide.  I love this school and am so happy my girls are there!  Also, Kathleen in the office is so awesome for always helping every family find the funds to make it happen for their child to go there.  It is a group effort to get everyone the funds they need to continue on the journey.  I love that.  They always say if you have a heart to have your child go to a Christian school, God will assist you along the way and provide for you.  So true!"

I just love fca! My son has grown so much since attending here. The staff is so wonderful and they treat you like family. I love the closeness you feel with the staff. The education he is getting here is outstanding. Compared to most kids his age he is ahead and advancing in every area. You can really feel the love of God in this school and in this community.

You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
