School Notes

  • FSCA serves students through a low teacher-student ration (1:10), direct and explicit instruction, multisensory learning experiences, assistance with organization, and a higher rate of individualized attention that is typically not offered in public or larger private schools.
  • FSCA's programs are not watered down versions of traditional schooling. There are no reduced expectations, but the programs emphasize individualized instruction. Supplemental material and unique scheduling arrangements have been carefully researched to match a wide variety of learning styles. The materials are presented in ways which really hit home, allowing them to grasp concepts and increase their knowledge.
  • FSCA has the distinction of being the only private school in Cumberland County that has a program specifically dedicated to students with mild to moderate learning disabilities, including autism. FSCA accommodates existing IEP's for students, or will develop an IEP, if needed.  We also are a recipient of the Disabilities Grant and the Opportunity Scholarship those who qualify under state guidelines.

My son has attended Flaming Sword for 6 years. He has high-functioning autism. The small class size and encouraging setting have allowed him to thrive. The grouping of students by skill level creates an environment which builds confidence. This is important as my son has a substantial processing delay. The school also provides opportunities for enrichment and extracurricular activities for those interested. The school is focused on helping every student reach their full potential.

My son has attended FSCA for four years. This school and its staff have been the driving force behind his success. His teachers have always been easy to engage with and willing to take the extra time to work with us and our son when he went through a rough patch. He really enjoys school - he looks forward to his school year, and that gives me some peace of mind. I see my son's academic progress, social development and overall great attitude towards school and feel so fortunate we found Dr. Hatmaker and the amazing staff of Flaming Sword Christian Academy.

My son has attended Flaming Sword since kindergarten. He will be going into his 6th grade year 2020-2021. He has grown so much both academically and socially. He has had caring, compassionate, and attentive teachers over his years with Flaming Sword. He currently takes the culinary arts class, karate, and drum lessons for his extra-curricular activities and has found he really has a lot of talents in different areas. He has a great group of friends that understand him. The smaller classrooms have been wonderful for him to receive more one-on-one attention. He is not afraid to raise his hand and as a question. I can easily reach out to the teachers and to the principal if I need further explanation on an assignment or a grade. Grade link is the system they use for posting grades and report cards. This has made it so easy to consistently stay behind him on his grades and see what he has for HW assignments for the week.

Great school for kids with mild learning disabilities or those that need more one on one attention. Flaming Sword changed my daughter's life. This was her third school after having issues with public and another private school. They understand the issues the children face and keep open communication. They understand that testing and trying different medications take time and can change behaviors. The teachers are intelligent, kind, and patient. They not only provide a great education, but also responsibility and life skills.

My three grandsons attend Flaming Sword. The oldest who has Aspergers(mild autism) graduated with a 4.0 average. This school addressed his needs, his particular learning style, and his need for social interaction. The middle child has dyslexia and was behind in public school. Now he has completely caught up, makes honor role, and has leararned to play chess with one of the instructors. I cannot say enough good things about this school. I feel blessed that we found it. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants their child to have a top notch education.
