Academic Purpose

Faith Baptist Christian Academy desires each student to receive a quality education and predominantly utilizes the renowned Abeka Book curriculum. Abeka Book curriculum is used by over 750,000 students in Christian schools. Faith Baptist Christian Academy provides students with the ability to prepare for college, and core instruction in all of the major disciplines. We encourage you to contact our school office and allow someone from our administrative staff to answer your questions.

Abeka Book Curriculum

Our philosophy doesn’t come from what sounds good or from what other people are doing right now. Instead, our teacher-led, character-building philosophy comes from a biblical foundation—Proverbs 22:6a, “Train up a child in the way he should go.”

There’s structure and organization because that helps students know what to expect—and what’s expected of them—but also because 1 Corinthians 14:40 says, “Let all things be done decently and in order.”

In history, you see God’s hand. In science, you see His design. In grammar, you see His order.

Every subject is approached from a Christian perspective, and you’ll find Scripture and biblical principles used to emphasize or illustrate concepts.

Abeka’s spiral approach

Building from the simple to the complex, with frequent review and application within each grade and from grade to grade.
This means you prevent learning gaps from the first day you teach with Abeka until the last.

The work you put in now pays off later.

Since repetition is the key to learning, concepts are truly learned—and remembered.

Because concepts aren’t presented just one time, or in one way, it means you’re giving your students multiple opportunities to be successful.

Rough days are less stressful when you realize you don’t have just ONE CHANCE to make sure your entire class understands a concept.

Learning preferences

When faced with the 3 major learning styles (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic, or hearing, seeing, and doing), learning preferences are how you prefer, if given a choice, to learn something. Instead of favoring 1 and neglecting the others, we incorporate all 3.
By using all 3, you’re teaching your students to be adaptable, resilient learners.

You’re preparing them for college and real life.

You’re doing what the best teachers do to help their students learn.

Cross-subject integration

Pulling in concepts from 1 subject into several others to reinforce understanding and tie learning together.
Learning comes to life more with cross-subject integration (like when students learn about Abraham Lincoln in history, read about him in language arts, do a project with pennies and top hats in art, and write a story using what they know).

Students feel a sense of familiarity and accomplishment when they see something they’ve already learned (like spelling words) “pop up” in another subject (like science or literature). They’re set up to succeed.

It engages curiosity and emphasizes the big picture.
