At First Assembly Christian School, we believe that all children are gifted by God to use their talents for His service. We raise the bar academically, and through the loving encouragement of our teachers, students go farther than they ever dreamed possible. FACS is accredited by two outside organizations – ACSI and SACS. Both of these groups require annual reports and on-site visits every five years. They look at all areas of our school, including our Philosophy, Goals & Mission; School, Home & Community; Admissions; School Personnel; School Board; School Finances; Instructional Program; Student Activities; Media Center; Food Services and Facilities.

FACS has two computer labs—a mobile netbook lab and, our most recently updated lab in room 1119, housing twenty-four 2011 Dell computers. In addition, middle school students are supplied with a netbook to use in all classes. Students begin practicing computer skills in kindergarten, building each year with keyboarding, internet research skills, spreadsheets and PowerPoint projects. In addition, each classroom is equipped with two computers, one hooked to the internet and one used to run education software. Teachers have also been trained to use Smart Board technology for interactive internet whole class instruction when appropriate.
Almost all of our 8th grade graduates transition into public high schools and take honors classes in English, History, Science and Math. The majority of our graduates have already completed the Algebra and Computer Competency requirement for high school graduation by the time they leave FACS. At First Assembly Christian School, we believe that all children are gifted by God to use their talents for His service. We raise the bar academically, and through the loving encouragement of our teachers, we help students go farther than they ever dreamed possible.
