We strive to make academics relevant to the lives of our students. We are not interested in students simply being able to regurgitate facts on a test. We look for enduring understanding from our students; we want what they learn here to stay with them long after their time at FPA. Additionally, learning opportunities do not just happen in our academic buildings. Learning happens across a variety of settings at Faith Preparatory Academy: in the classrooms, on the court, and within each FPA event. Our faculty and staff are tireless in their efforts to support students.
you can't change the game in the 9th inning. at fpa, we teach our student-athletes how to play the game; off of the court. How to keep up with a syllabus? check. how to manage your emotions when you are being corrected or "refined"? check. how to market yourself an cultivate your brand? check. how to network and establish relationships? check. How to communicate effectively and speak in front of an audience? check. How to handle interviews and the media? check. How to communicate on team chat lines and the "group me" app? check, check, check! It's all in the game!
The biblical worldview will be emphasized throughout each and every course that the students take. Faith Preparatory Academy is dedicated to teaching God’s Word and incorporating it into every aspect of the student’s experience.
Faith Prep offers tailored options for each of our students success. Some may need high school credit recovery, others may need higher standardized college entrance test scores, and some may want to get a jump start on transferrable college credit. Whatever the academic need, our program has an option to help students obtain their specific goal.
