The curriculum at FBCA is standards based. Curriculum resources are a mixture of the best materials available centered upon the Word of God. ABeka and Bob Jones comprise the core of our curricular purchases.
The goal is not only the academic excellence of the student; but more importantly, the personal excellence of the student. The Bible tells us to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). Keeping this in mind, we attempt to instruct each child in the Christian way of life. Our day includes Bible classes, Scripture memorization and prayer. Throughout the day Bible truths are applied to day-to-day living and working with others.
Believing that reading is vital to learning, we teach according to the phonics method. Mathematics and Science teach the students that there is order and planning in God’s world. Students are instructed in Language Arts and handwriting so that neatness and order can enhance communicating with others. History is the story of God working out His plan on earth through man.
Chapel is held once a week and may be led by teachers, school principal and/or ministers. Students with questions concerning doctrinal teaching will be directed to their parents and/or pastor.
