Our Philosophy of Education
We recognize that God is the source and center of all knowledge, wisdom and meaning. All that He has created is for His own glory and purposes; all learning is a gift from God to be used responsibly by students in their unique ways.
French Camp Academy embraces an environment of Christ-centered excellence in education that encompasses respect for one another and focuses on life-oriented, active learning to make God a part of everyday life for its students.
In all courses, our certified teachers seek to integrate faith and learning in the classroom. For the most current course offerings, please contact our principal's office at 662.547.6113.

We have four words to describe the dress code at French Camp Academy: modest, clean, neat and appropriate.
All students during school hours are required to wear plain or pleated-front khaki pants or shorts and designated polo-style shirts (gray, white, or cobalt blue).
During winter months, students must wear the Land's End Polar Tec, a full-zipped front jacket that's comfortable and attractive. Closed-toe shoes must be worn and can be purchased at the store of your choice. Go to Lands' End School Uniforms for uniform needs.
