Faith Christian Academy holds the utmost respect for homeschooling families and has a strong desire to support home educators in the Kansas City area in the endeavor to provide their children with an academically excellent, well-rounded, Christ-centered education. Below are a few of the ways Faith Christian Academy partners with homeschooling families. If you have any questions about FCA’s relationship with the homeschool community, please contact the main office at 816-455-3513.
Unit CoursesMost courses offered at Faith Christian Academy for students in the secondary (grades 7-12) are available as unit study courses to homeschool students. If there is a particularly subject a parent is struggling to teach, or that a student would like to pursue further, families may consider electing to take a course on site at our secondary campus. Worldview/Bible courses, science, mathematics, Latin, logic, and literature courses are some of the subject areas offered. For a list of the upcoming semester's courses, please use our contact form or call the main office. Some subjects may require placement tests or screening prior to enrollment.
