Our Philosophy of Education
We recognize that God is the source and center of all knowledge, wisdom, and meaning. All that He has created us 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.
Results From Our Academic Program
Our teachers are gifted, dedicated, and provide individual attention when our students need it. As a result, our young people thrive academically. Academy students compete in regional and national Beta Club activities, and consistently, FCA has increased its ACT score to an average of 21+. This score exceeds the state average.
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 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. Go to Lands' End School Uniforms for uniform needs.
