To equip and engage students for a lifetime of service for Jesus Christ.
Expected Student Outcome
Individually, we expect each student to perform to the best of his/her ability. We strive to instill in them an appreciation for the value of learning, and the understanding that everything they do should be to the glory of God.
Academically, Full Armor expects students to perform at or above the level generally expected from a quality school and be well prepared to enter college upon graduation.
Socially, beyond academic performance, we expect our students to develop a clear Christian worldview, and a deeper faith in God through Christ Jesus.
Full Armor Christian Academy is a private Christian educational institution not affiliated with any denomination. It is the belief of FACA that the very foundation upon which all learning should take place is Biblical truth. The founders of Full Armor and those to whom it has been entrusted confess and affirm the central beliefs and truths of the Christian faith and seek to honor those truths in every aspect of school life.
At Full Armor, great emphasis is placed on the learning environment. Qualified, caring teachers, small class size, and carefully selected curriculum reflect the philosophy that the most effective form of teaching is one that teaches students how to learn and encourages them to want to learn. Careful enrollment procedures, strong disciplinary policies, and uniform standards and/or dress codes are all designed to eliminate distractions and negative peer pressure that can hinder the learning process.
The Full Armor philosophy also states that children learn best when they are challenged, when they can enjoy the learning process, and when they understand that as beings created in the image of God, they have inherent worth and value. Therefore, the teaching of morals, responsible behavior, and self-discipline cannot and should not be separated from the teaching of academics. The goal of Christian education is the complete integration of all learning with God's truth, and the ultimate responsibility for the academic and spiritual education of a child lies with parents. The school should facilitate active cooperation between parents, teachers, and students.
Statement of Faith
The following statement of faith is held in common agreement by the parents and personnel of the school.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (II Timothy 3:15, II Peter 1:21).
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4), His Ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We believe the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, and that people are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8 13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, I Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18).
