School Notes

  • A child`s needs extend far beyond the basics of food and shelter. French Camp Academy partners with families who are unable to provide the safe structured environment their student needs whether it be a single parent, work schedules, grandparent raising their grand children, neglect or abuse. At French Camp Academy we seek to meet each student where they are and provide them with a loving home environment where they are supported, cared for, encouraged, and taught needed life skills. Students are enrolled in our 7th - 12th grade accredited academy which provides academic classes, vocational training, a full sports program, and arts. At FCA we seek to deliver Christ-centered excellence in the classroom and beyond. Afternoons and weekends are filled with extracurricular opportunities or FCA`s unique work program through which staff members train students in various skills while also building character and work ethic. The skills learned through the work program provide students a broad resume upon graduation. Students attend church services and chapels weekly as well as are engaged in devotions in the home -- an intentional focus on faith in God and a Christian world view runs throughout the entire student experience.
