Academy Pillars of Excellence
At Faith Lutheran Academy, we strive to ensure that each child is offered a developmentally appropriate, well-rounded education, which will provide growth in the following areas:
Faith in Jesus
Teachers and staff will instruct, model, and witness our faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Students will be provided an environment and opportunity to grow in their knowledge and understanding of God’s purpose for His people in our community and the world. God’s Word will be integrated into all parts of the curriculum. We will instruct and respond to God’s love by sharing that love with others in word and deed through the application of God’s Word and Sacraments (Baptism and Holy Communion) not only with students but also with families.
Students will be given the opportunity to practice Christian values, conflict-resolution skills, cooperation, respect, and teamwork. These experiences will help students develop life-long spiritual, intellectual, social, physical and emotional wellness. All actions of staff, parents, and students should be Christ-like in their actions by exhibiting the Fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). While feeling embraced as valued members of our "Faith Family".
Students are taught the skills to be able to learn through their own inquiry and curiosity while attacking new challenges with excitement and confidence. We provoke, inspire, and motivate life-long learning to take place in and out of the classroom. A variety of educational experiences are provided to assist students in developing habits that encompass spiritual, intellectual, social-emotional, and physical skills for life.
