The elementary years are the time to lay the foundation for the years to come. And the best way to do this critical work is to ignite a fire for the love of learning in our younger children. We've designed an elementary program that will provide abundant learning opportunities where children can move, explore, experiment, and interact with material.
JFCA offers on campus and off campus field trips to enhance our student's love of learning
From a JFCA Parent 'The administration and teachers are FOR my students; they promote my children; they care about all aspects of my children. The time at school and at home encourages
students to be disciplined while also giving parents the opportunity to continue to disciple their children. This model empowers and edifies the family. It offers the best lifestyle.'
'Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and diligence.'  Abigail Adams
