UNIFORM POLICY

FCA UNIFORM POLICY

All students at FCA are required to wear school uniforms.

 

Objectives for FCA uniform policy:

  • Safety. Uniforms make it much easier to identify our students.
  • Promotes FCA pride, unity, and brand awareness.
  • Reflects our image appropriately with a consistent appearance.
  • Modesty is important. Our clothing offers coverage and comfort for students.
  • Helps students feel less social pressure.
  • Helps students stay focused and disciplined and generally betters their ability to achieve educational goals.
  • Differentiates FCA from others in the community.
  • Uniforms can eliminate label competition and offer an optimal learning experience.
  • Uniforms are more cost-effective. Changing to uniforms saves time on decisions about what to wear.

Theater is offered to FCA students who want to learn theatrical skills and performance with an emphasis on pantomime, stage movement, oral interpretation, acting, and theater heritage.

Faith Christian Academy drama productions unite the entire school, grades K-12th.  All students are encouraged to participate and bring his or her individual talents and abilities to the various productions. The magnitude of sound teamwork is a guiding principle in FCA theatre.  FCA theatre strives to build confidence in each individual area of talent while demonstrating how these talents can be combined to create something extraordinary.

Typically, the FCA Drama Club performs two main productions each year. Additionally, the drama club performs smaller productions throughout the year in the chapel services as well as special mission outreach dramas.

Visual Arts

The visual arts program at Faith Christian Academy is designed to bring the best out in each student taking art classes.  Time is given to each child to nurture the talent that God has blessed him or her with.  Art should be enjoyable to view and to do.  At FCA, every attempt is made to make art a fun process that will connect with your child.  The art program is designed to strengthen each child’s overall development and build his or her self-esteem.

Children are taught the basics of art in a way that is easily understandable.  The students can measure progress, making each one feel good about their work.  Creativity is a gift from God, and children are encouraged to explore the world of art and develop their art form or style.

Much time is spent as children learn to draw using geometric shapes as the foundational blocks of skillful drawing.  Children are taught how to use pastels, charcoal, paint, colored pencils, and a variety of other tools and media to create pleasing artwork.

Students are offered after-school art classes/clubs to sharpen their artist skills.  Students will enter at least two art contests during the course of the school year.  In the past FCA artists have fared very well in statewide contests, placing first place several years. God has blessed us with outstanding artists.
