Bible Verse of the Day
What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
School started this week at Faith Christian Academy but you may be having second thoughts about your child's current school. Perhaps her or his school starts next week, or maybe it started last week. The good news is that you don't need a time machine to rethink your decision.
We accept new enrollments past the start of school. If your budget is being stretched too thin, our tuition is an excellent value relative to other private schools.
If your child is unhappy in his current school, we are a bully-free institution. It is not tolerated under any circumstance.
If you want your child educated where Christ is welcome in the classroom, He is our guide. In daily prayer, as the central element of the curriculum and upon whose grace the foundation of our school is built, His presence is woven throughout each school day.
Call, email or stop by the Kyova Tri State mall and visit with our staff. Yes, we are the school in the mall. If you've been to the Boyd County Public Library branch, you are just down concourse from us. We are here to serve your family, as we serve the Lord.
Have a blessed Day!
"The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly."
Isaiah 60:22 (New International Version)
Just between us (and the lord)...
The 2013-2014 school year begins on Tuesday. A local church prayed over area schools today for God's guidance for the students, parents and teachers during this upcoming school year. What a wonderful idea!
In that same spirit, we ask visitors to this site, our Friends on Facebook and our followers on Twitter to pray for Faith Christian Academy. Although we are here to serve YOU, there is no more valuable service you can provide for US.
Please do us one more favor. Once you have prayed for the Lord's providence for our our school, please let us know who you are by leaving a comment on this blog post. If you see this link on Facebook, please Like and share the post. If you are following us on Twitter, please Tweet back and recommend us to your followers.
In return, we will pray as a school for God to watch over your family. Thanks and May God bless each of you!
We Are Ready for you!
The floors are waxed, windows washed and desks are ready for students. Are you ready yet?
It isn't too late to consider Faith Christian Academy. Yes, we are that school, the one in the mall- just down the concourse from the library in the mall. Some people have a hard time wrapping their mind around that concept but what happens each day in the classrooms is what matters most. Where we are isn't nearly so important as who is emphasized throughout our curriculum. We may not be for everybody but we're here for you!
If the Lord is leading you toward a Christian education for your child, we'd be glad to serve your family. Preview pictures of our school below, check out our website, register online or give us call at 606-928-3039.
A Mustard Seed
Jesus used the parable of the mustard seed in Matthew 17:19-21 to emphasize the comparison of the small size of the deposit of faith needed to elicit a change in circumstances when praying to God.
Building a new school is not for the faint of heart- or faith. In these economic and militant secular political times, it certainly isn't easy. Deep down, you know it is necessary. If you don't have children, or you are one of our Facebook friends in other cities and states, we have reserved the most important role for you. Prayer. There is no more important capital for a Christian school than the lifting up of prayer. We ask for, and appreciate, yours!
If you have children, lets discuss what you will not find at Faith Christian Academy. If you are looking for athletics, you won't find that here. If you are looking for road trips on chartered buses, look elsewhere. If you want big buildings with big rooms and big gymnasiums and big playgrounds, you have lots of other places to look. If you are looking for big organizations bulging with warm bodies; nope, not here.
What you will find at Faith Christian Academy is the hard work of educating children where God is welcome in the classroom every day, one day at a time. We expect much of our students spiritually, academically and behaviorally. Some learn faster than others but all are valued, all are loved. All get that something extra that isn't allowed in the public schools and gets lost in the shuffle at larger ones.
Together as a school, as a staff, as parents, we have faith in God every day that He will provide (see our school name). Some parents are afraid to take that step of faith with small schools while others see that mustard seed. Have faith to be part of building a new kind of school - it only takes a little.
People are asking if it is too late to register. Of course all schools prefer early registration whenever possible but the good news is that it is not too late! We know that sending your child to private school is a major financial commitment that requires much prayer, planning and consideration. Our 2013-2014 school year begins on August 13 but we will accept new enrollments beyond the start of the semester. We are accepting enrollments from K4 through 8th grade and are here for your family.

Reaping the Benefits of a Christian School By Charles Walker
The joy received from watching a child grow academically and mature in the Lord makes all the effort, all the time, all the money worth it.
As a parent, you have prayed, researched, sought counsel, and examined all possible educational options. You have conscientiously made the decision to send your child to a Christian school because you understand the value and benefits of a Christian education. It might prove enlightening and encouraging to you to carefully re-examine the specific reasons that prompted you to make this critical choice for your child and why today you are reaping the benefits of a Christian school.
Your first response to the question of “why?” my child attends a Christian school may go something like this: “I enrolled my child in a Christian school to obtain a Christian education in a morally, spiritually, and physically safe environment.” However, this answer is probably an over-simplification of your decision to capitalize on the values of a Christian school. A review of the many benefits that your child reaps academically, spiritually, and socially in a Christ-centered classroom may illuminate your reasoning preparing you to “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” (I Peter 3:15).
Christian values and attitudes are taught and emphasized in the Christian school. The overt effects of violence and immorality so common in today’s public schools clearly demonstrate the need for a Christian education. The Christian ethics and morals expounded in your home and church are reinforced in the Christian school classroom. Nurturing a child with Biblical truth is an excellent way to equip him for maturity. The Christian values taught in the Christian home and reinforced in the Christian school enable your child to deal with a troubled world without succumbing to its troubles, another reason you send your child to a Christian school.
Placing your child in a Christian school may necessitate a financial sacrifice, a geographical inconvenience, or a drain on your energy, but the joy received from watching your child grow academically and mature in the Lord makes all the effort, all the time, all the money worth it. You should praise the Lord for the wisdom and direction He has given you, and thank Him for the blessings of a Christian school.
Dr. Charles Walker is a former education director of the American Association of Christian Schools and the executive director of the Tennessee Association of Christian Schools.
