In December of 2008, after much prayer and searching for God’s will, the leadership team of Hall Powers and Joan Dayton established Freedom Christian Academy, whose mission was to nurture and equip students to seek truth for their lives as they become citizen-leaders of excellence, wisdom and faith.

God confirmed this through His Word in Galatians 5:13, “For you were called to Freedom brethren; through love serve one another.” Not only had God established a new school but He had named it for them! An Advisory Council of 10 committed believers from different local churches was commissioned to give direction and advice to the school leadership and to construct bylaws for governance. The affiliation with ACSI came shortly after and the commitment to accreditation was made by all shareholders.

Now that the new school was established, location was the next important issue which was soon solved by the generous offer of Pastor Wiley Hughes from Mount Carmel Church in Fayetteville. He offered temporary housing to the new school based on a prophetic word they had received to have a school on their grounds. For two years, Freedom was located on Owen Drive as they grew from 100 to 200 students and from 12 to 22 teachers/staff.

In December of 2010, Freedom leadership knew it was time to locate a permanent home and God revealed His new location, so necessary because of the tremendous blessing of added families. The Technimark Building on Gillespie Street that paralleled 301 South was put on the market, and, even though there was very little money, there was much faith. With help from generous friends and investors, capital was raised and the building was purchased. With the effort of a Christian general contractor and architect, a beautiful plan began to unfold and a warehouse was soon transformed into a schoolhouse that would honor our God and our country.

Now in its fourth year of operation, Freedom has over 400 students including a Preschool. It offers AP and honors classes for the gifted, but also offers free tutoring for those who need a little extra academic help. In the fall of 2012, a special needs teacher will begin to offer pull-out classes and therapy for students with special needs. We offer a full range of athletics, many of which are housed in our new Freedom Courts facility next door which contains 4 full size gyms, a walking-track, a new nautilus facility to be opened in 2013, and a coffee shop. Multiple fine arts and technology classes are available, along with Spanish for students from kindergarten through high school.

We are profoundly grateful to each person who has invested their time, talent, and resources to build Freedom. To God be the glory, great things He hath done!

Vision & Mission

Our Mission

At the core of our beliefs about children is the knowledge that every one of them is a gift from God. As we partner with parents to train and teach their precious children, we are mindful of their differences because the Lord created them all for His purpose. Nurturing the treasure in each child in a safe environment is of the utmost importance if they are to reach their full potential. That is why teachers use a variety of strategies to enhance learning: group work, individualized instruction, creative fun, projects, drills, field trips, discussions, music, physical activity, and skits.

Our Vision

Vision is about foresight, looking ahead to the future, and seeing your destination. In a world that is violent, in a country that is being secularized, and in a society that is selfish, we are dedicated to building leaders that want to serve the Lord for His glory and His purposes. To accomplish this task, students are trained to become self-reliant learners, independent thinkers and generous stewards. With an emphasis on church and community involvement, students can learn at an early age the blessing of teamwork, membership, citizenship, and godly service. The ultimate vision is to produce well-rounded leaders who think biblically in all situations.

Goals

Our Goals & Objectives

The major academic goal for Freedom was met in 2013 when we received full accreditation from ACSI/SACS and AdvancEd. (NAPS accreditation was completed in 201).

Our desire is to partner with parents in developing a non-denominational Christian community school for their children that does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, or denomination. To accomplish this, FCA has committed to pursue 10 major objectives:

  • To instruct using a God-centered curriculum, teaching the basic doctrines of faith
  • To provide multiple opportunities for students to find God, know God, obey God, and serve God
  • To lead students to confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord so they may lead others to do the same
  • To encourage, support, and give guidance to parents in the home
  • To encourage high academic standards, good study habits, common sense reasoning, and responsible ethics
  • To help pupils gain a thorough comprehension and command of the fundamentals of interpersonal communication with a strong emphasis on reading, writing, speaking, and listening
  • To provide activities designed to arouse curiosity, stimulate creativity, and to enrich understanding of the arts while fostering an appreciation for its many facets.
  • To provide opportunities for all children to exercise, participate in organized outside activities, and be a part of an athletic team if they should so desire
  • To promote good citizenship through an appreciation of our American heritage and the Judeo-Christian tradition that highlights responsible freedom, human dignity, and the acceptance of authority
  • To develop an understanding of God’s world, an awareness of man’s role in his environment and his God-given responsibilities to properly use and preserve it.

Academics & Curriculum

Academics & Curriculum

The most widely used and accepted Christian curriculum in America is A Beka, which we use predominately in our grammar, spelling, and reading classes. A Beka readers have had remarkable success in classrooms that demand accelerated comprehension and vocabulary. Novels and novelettes are introduced into the 3rd grade curriculum and by the time a student moves to the Middle School, the literature study is completely novel-based. (see classroom novels). Mathematics is taught from newly published ACSI texts, which provide better results for reasoning and problem solving. Our new and beautiful Science texts, entitled Purposeful Design, provide a solid biblical foundation for the students’ view of their world. MS and HS math uses the 2011 Prentice-Hall textbooks which continually integrate technology and include additional links for at home use.

The goal of an education is to put “tools of learning” into students’ hands. Because children travel through different stages of development, the curriculum also needs to be divided into stages to accommodate their abilities to grasp and learn material. Above all, this learning will be done in the context of a Biblical framework.

High School (wisdom stage)

Students are encouraged to apply knowledge and understanding to the problems they will need to overcome as Christian leaders and good citizens. We want them to employ faith, courage and persuasion as they seek to answer the rhetorical question “why not?” Summer reading is required for all students.
