Curriculum

Education With a Biblical Worldview

At Faith Academy we believe that the best education provides students with a Biblical worldview that trains students to properly understand the world they live in. Students are taught to know, understand and explain what they believe and why they believe it. Daily interactive Bible instruction with scripture memorization and weekly Chapel services are a vital part of our Biblical integration approach to learning. Educational objectives and curriculum materials are selected according to how well they conform to a Biblical worldview and meet state and national standards. Our classes utilize a variety of Christian curriculum to best meet the needs of all learning styles.

Faith Academy has selected Bob Jones University Press as the primary textbook provider because of their strong biblical worldview incorporated in each content area.
