Some parents struggle with the idea of a school in a mall. Some may ask "why" but we think the better question is "why not"?
Operating a private school is not cheap! Beyond staff salaries, roofs have to be patched, sidewalks have to be shoveled and parking lots have to be cleared. Air conditioners break down, kitchens have to be staffed and buildings have to be routinely maintained. By draining resources from the classroom, just any one of these categories takes away from the central mission of the school.
Few Christian schools could survive on income from tuition alone. To do so would price school beyond most family budgets. Because of that, Christian schools are usually subsidized by sponsor churches- either individually or by collectives- and by prolific fundraising. Subsidies may come in the form of direct contributions and in-kind donations such as the use of facilities.
Faith Christian Academy is taking a different approach. We welcome donations and sponsorships by churches and patrons- and we need them! However, we have minimized distractions associated with out of classroom necessities of maintaining a building and staffing a kitchen. By locating in a mall with enclosed commons areas, a public library branch, a food court, and other recreational opportunities on the concourse, we maximize every square inch of space to support our biblical and educational mission. Our monthly expenses are predictable, maintenance is performed by the mall and food court vendors do the cooking. Our staff is freed to focus ALL of their energies on educating your children in a Godly classroom.
