About FCA Menu
Welcome to Faith Christian Academy. Our mission is to offer education, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to provide an excellent biblically integrated curriculum, which inspires students to acquire wisdom, knowledge, and character. FCA's desire is to enable students to pursue wisdom and build godly character as they grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Partnering with Parents,
What Makes FCA Unique?
The North Central Association (NCA) accredits Faith Christian Academy. NCA accredits public and private schools throughout the United States and Europe. Their representative serves on the five-year site visits to the FCA campus.
The International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA) also accredits Faith Christian Academy. ICAA accredits Christian Schools throughout the United States and around the world. ICAA is the primary accrediting body for FCA and directs the five-year sites visits to the FCA campus. The Association of Christian Schools International also recognizes accreditation by each of these organizations.
Teachers at FCA are well qualified to effectively teach within their areas of specialization, as nearly 81% hold current Colorado certification. All remaining non certified teachers are actively pursuing certification. FCA teachers are not only well trained professionals, but also view their calling to teach as a ministry to each student. Our teachers are empowered by the Holy Spirit to effectively address the students’ spiritual, academic, emotional and physical needs in the context of their relationship with Jesus Christ. Therefore, our teachers enable students to discover how God’s word provides direction, correction, comfort and encouragement in all aspects of life. Every FCA teacher has a minimum of a BA and 80% are certified teachers who are teaching in their content area of certification.
FCA students in grades K-8 annually score one or more grade levels beyond their national counterparts on the Stanford Achievement Test. Additionally, all FCA graduates are required to take the ACT (American college entrance test) and scores average 2.5 points higher than the national average. Nearly 80% of FCA students taking Advanced Placement classes earn college credit by virtue of their scores on AP final exams. (Detailed result graphs are available in the FCA Profile section of our web site.) 97% of our students further their education after High School.
Upon graduation, development of godly character and a biblical worldview are two of the key goals established for every FCA student. Throughout their career at FCA, students are given many opportunities to achieve these goals. Each student is required to participate in various outreach projects within their church and community, beginning during elementary years and continuing throughout their high school experience. Additionally, many students also choose to participate in short term mission trips to serve, evangelize and demonstrate God's compassion around the world. Finally, each student is challenged through daily Bible classes, chapels and within each academic discipline to discover God’s perspective on real life issues.
Our Athletic Programs
FCA students have numerous opportunities beginning in elementary school to participate in athletics. Athletic programs offer varsity and sub varsity options, as FCA teams successfully compete in the Colorado High School Activities Association 3A division and have won one or more state championships in eleven consecutive years. Athletic success is not only measured by the number of wins, losses and final standings, but also upon the quality relationships that are built between players, coaches, opponents, and ultimately with the Lord Jesus Christ. Athletic competition provides significant character building opportunities for athletes and coaches.
Our Fine Arts & Technology
FCA students participate in the fine arts programs beginning in kindergarten. Recent all-school plays include “Beauty & the Beast,” “Annie,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” and “Music Man.” Many years, students on all campuses are encouraged to try out for the school play. Choirs, bands, art, and drama class members participate in ACSI and state competitions and frequently take top honors. An FCA goal is for students to affect the world for Christ using and developing the gifts He has given them. Technology is offered to elementary and middle school students teaching them keyboarding as well as how to use programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Project Lead the Way is a program FCA offers to middle and high school students that teaches technology and engineering.
Our Extracurricular Activities
From Kindergarten through High School, a diverse array of student activities are available to FCA students including ACSI speech meets, spelling bees, music festivals and science fairs for elementary students. Knowledge Bowl, Speech, video editing, yearbook, journalism, robotics, various clubs, student tutoring, Jr Honor Society and National Honor Society are some of the options available for middle school and high school students. Each one of these programs is designed to provide a specific niche that will empower every student to develop the gifts and talents that God has placed within them and enhance their educational experience.
