Expected Student Outcomes

EXPECTED STUDENT OUTCOMES

So, what does a graduate of Freedom Christian Academy (FCA) look like? To articulate this goal, we have developed the portrait of a student who completes their education at FCA and we call these our Expected Student Outcomes. These outcomes are based on the four pillars that make up our educational goals. Our goal is to graduate students who are equipped with a scholarship, inspired by discipleship, motivated to citizenship, and prepared for servant leadership. Please follow the link at the bottom of the page to review the complete document explaining our Expected Student Outcomes.

Scholarship

As an academic institution, it is our responsibility to educate students well. Learning should include a thorough teaching of core content and the skills to learn more through a Biblical lens. Students should be equipped with 21st Century fluencies, able to think critically, work collaboratively, engage in discovery and investigation, and think globally.

Students will utilize a variety of resources, including technology and thoughtful questioning, to evaluate information for effective problem-solving. Students will display respect for the preparation and process for all God-given vocational and professional callings.

The students will be able to…
• utilize a variety of resources, including technology, to evaluate information.
• demonstrate the ability to develop thoughtful questions in the pursuit of problem-solving and decision-making.
• demonstrate the ability to use Biblical truth to analyze and evaluate information and concepts to determine validity.
• evidence responsible stewardship concerning the academic talents and opportunities given by God.
• take a logical, scholarly, and responsible approach to discovery and investigation of God’s creation.

Leadership

As a Christian institution, we have the responsibility to train students to develop a spirit of servant-leadership. Freedom Christian Academy seeks to instill in students a Biblical view of servant-leadership with a clear focus on service in all aspects of life.

Students will identify and understand the inherent tension between egotistical individualism and servant-leadership. Students will apply the spiritual principle of “washing the feet of others,” as modeled by Jesus Christ.
