ACADEMIC PROGRAMS At Faith Mountain we believe that children should be provided a comprehensive educational experience focused on a Biblical perspective. Students are always encouraged to pursue the most challenging course of studies that the Lord has enabled them to handle and we strive to provide the tools to accomplish that goal. At the same time, we realize that not all students are prepared to learn at the same rate. Our approach and small teacher to student ratio allows us to provide individualized support to meet each pupil's individual needs. The curriculum at FMCA primarily includes instructional materials produced by Bob Jones University Press (www.bjupress.com) and ABeka Books (www.abeka.com) . Our goal is to teach our students each subject from a Biblical, character-building viewpoint. Daily Bible classes and weekly chapel services are an integral part of our program.
K-4 This program is available as half-day or full-day sessions (5 days per week) intended to introduce 4-year old children to school. It is designed for students not yet old enough for kindergarten, but ready to learn in a traditional setting.

It is not a pre-school or daycare program.
