Welcome back FCCA families!
Our theme verse for the 2016-2017 school year is Ephesians 3:20-21
The mission of First Church Christian Academy is to support parents who seek to obey Biblical instruction, which gives them the ultimate responsibility for the education of their children (Deut. 6:7-8). Because the Christian approach to learning differs significantly from the secular viewpoint. FCCA offers a curriculum rooted in a God-centered view of life. This view holds that God’s truth is the standard for all truth. Our curriculum, taught by qualified Christian teachers, allows parents to provide their children with excellent academic instruction consistent with the Christ-centered teaching received at home and at church.
Thank you for your involvement at FCCA.

Why a Christian Education?
Schools are social institutions in which students learn about the world and their roles therein. According to author Richard J. Edlin in The Cause of Christian Education, "Christian schools are uniquely positioned to join with Christian parents in preparing and challenging young people to be Christ's ambassadors within a culture fixated on self-centered consumerism, bewildered cynicism and heart-wrenching despair." "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." Job 28:28. Believing that Christian schools serve an increasingly vital purpose, he recommends parents "seriously consider the religious environment of the school in which they wish to immerse their children and from which they will absorb their values and views of life." He adds, "The Christian ethic is incompatible with secular humanism which underlies modern education."
