At First Assembly Christian School, we believe that all children are gifted by God to use their talents for His service. High academic standards facilitated by professional Christian educators challenge students to reach their full potential. FACS is accredited by two outside organizations – ACSI www.acsi.org and SACS www.sacscasi.org. Second through 8th grade students are administered the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT 10th ed) each Spring.
Middle School students take the NC End of Course Exam for Algebra, Biology and Spanish I and transition into Honors and Seminar classes in high school. Our students develop a strong foundation of academic skills built on a Christian world view and are well prepared to step into leadership roles and excel in their high school experience.
First Assembly Christian School uses a combination of Christian and secular educational curriculum and publishers to provide a diverse educational experience. We believe successful students should approach life from a balanced perspective; therefore, education at FACS incorporates the discipline and high standards of a traditional classroom with a more creative “hands on” approach. We believe that children learn best by “doing” and therefore provide numerous opportunities (both in and out of the classroom) for our students to experience and apply the knowledge they are acquiring.
In addition to core classes like bible, math, language arts, science, and social studies, students also participate in music, art, media/technology, Spanish, and physical education classes with specialty teachers throughout the week.
