Frederick Christian Academy is in its 48th year of providing quality academic instruction in a loving and positive environment. Our students go on to further their education or enter the workplace equipped with higher order thinking skills, as well as discernment and communication skills.
Our aim is to teach every student enrolled an understanding of God, the priority that should be accorded His Word, and the responsibility that every person has to Him as Creator and Redeemer; to enable each student enrolled to develop both natural and spiritual gifts and talents with the understanding that the highest goal of mankind is to use these gifts and talents to worship and to glorify God; to develop within each student a level of basic skills achievement that will support successful functioning as a citizen of the kingdom of God and successful functioning as a citizen of this nation; to provide both curricular and instructional systems that will enable any student to achieve at levels that will prepare him/her to enter the next level of education chosen, whatever the academic rigor demanded; and to leave each student enrolled with a strong sense of right and wrong, to make him aware of the spiritual blessing that comes from doing right, and to warn each student of the many wrongs that now characterize our culture and the negative consequences to be borne by those who choose those wrongs.

FCA is a wonderful school. We couldn't be happier. Our children are truly learning how to be good students. The teachers clearly know what they are doing. Academics are strong and the school is a very warm and loving place. Our kids are happy and thriving - we''ve nothing negative to say.
