Preschool & Elementary School
FACS preschool consists of PreK (age 3 by August 1 of the year entering) and JrK (age 4 by August 1 of the year entering). Elementary school includes grades SrK-6. Preschool and SrK classrooms are located on the East side of our main academic building with a separate, closed-off playground and dedicated bathroom facilities.
Academics offerings begin for children who are at least three years old (by August 1 of the incoming school year) and fully potty trained. The purpose of our state-certified Pre-kindergarten and Junior Kindergarten programming is to instill a love for learning from an early age. Students also develop necessary skills that will help them be prepared for kindergarten.
Preschool and SrK classrooms are located on the East side of the main academic building with a separate playground, secured entrance and dedicated bathroom facilities.
Hands-on activities and imaginative play enriches young minds and makes for a fun, interactive way to learn letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Memorizing scripture helps build a strong and solid foundation. Students experience this in units of study and even more - like dress up days, field trips, and regular show-and-tell.
Students continue to prepare for elementary school through hands-on learning and engaging activities. They master PreK skills and extend their learning to include sight words, pre-emergent reading skills, and writing words, all while continuing to memorize Scripture. As with PreK, students continue to enjoy dress-up days, field trips, and events that reinforce academic units.
Students in elementary grades are challenged through a strong core studies curriculum that includes phonics, reading, English, spelling and vocabulary, math, science, social studies, and Bible. Teachers teach in whole and small groups and give individual instruction to meet students’ varied needs and learning styles.
Students also enjoy course instruction in music theory, physical education, chapel services, art, library studies, and hands-on STEAM activity (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Students in all grades experience additional academic programming outside of the classroom through field trips, Biz Town, Tennessee Hall of Fame (history fair), Spelling Bee, spring musical theatre, and vocal music and band programs. Extra-curricular programs and events include cheerleading camp, senior twin pep rallies, athletic teams (basketball, football, and cheerleading) and field day.
