FACT Academy is our private school for students K5 through 6th grade. The Abeka program is the curriculum that is utilized along with a variety of educational opportunities that are provided. Students receive individual learning attention within the classrooms and are taught key principles using a variety of teaching styles and methods. The students engage in a structured weekly schedule in which art classes, computer classes, chapel, etc. are integrated. For holidays and special occassions, students will perform in school programs, singing, acting, and presenting the development of new skills. These opportunites to be involved in programs not only help the students develop important communication and public speaking tools, but it gives them an opportunity to demonstrate their creative skills and talents.
