At Freedom Christian Academy, we believe that a love and reverence for God is the framework that facilitates productive learning and is the basis for the Biblical worldview that permeates our classes, curricula, and campus culture. The faculty of Freedom Christian Academy seek to deepen students’ understanding by presenting sound educational material through the light of God’s Word. Building on the foundation of a Biblical worldview, students learn to decipher data, appraise differing perspectives, assess information, and recognize truth and error.
We believe it is essential to equip students with skills to be successful lifelong learners; this means equipping today’s students for their tomorrow. FCA values diversity in learning and seeks to grow students to their academic potential by expanding their critical thinking skills, differentiating instruction, and diversifying content presentation to meet the needs of various learning styles.
A significant part of educating our students is equipping them with skills that transcend merely academic growth; we seek to develop the whole child. Students are taught organizational skills, how to self-monitor and self-regulate, as well as other pertinent college, career, and life-readiness skills. FCA uses an AVID framework along with a Biblical mindset to help students grow into who God is calling them to be.
OUR CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK
In an ever-changing world, it is essential to ensure our students remain grounded in God in all that they do while remaining academically competitive in the marketplace. We use a combination of North Carolina State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, ISTE Technology Standards, North Carolina Computer Science Standards, Lifeway’s Ages and Stages: Levels of Biblical Learning as well as Freedom specific standards to help ensure our students meet these goals. The majority of our curriculum is supported with Bob Jones University Press resources.
OUR BIBLE INSTRUCTION
FCA is not affiliated with any specific church or denomination but holds to the belief that the Bible is the infallible word of God, written by men who were divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit.
We allow the Bible to speak for itself on all topics so that our students will develop a Biblical worldview, while affirming that “all truth is God’s Truth” and that God’s truth abides in the person of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Bible classes are taught at every level at Freedom from preschool through grade 12. Separate from Bible class, there are weekly chapel services for Lower School and Upper School that include praise and worship and special speakers from our community.
