Summer reading provides students with continued and loosely structured backdrop while not in school. Additionally, it introduces them to reading that delights and quickens the soul, the idea being to encourage year-round reading. Each secondary student is challenged to read one required book that is then the basis for discussion once school starts in the fall. Books on this list encourage thought and discussion around the Great Ideas. This list provides not only the required reading but suggestions for further summer reading. Please note, summer reading books are not furnished by the school.2020-SUMMER-READING

The tuition reduction program at FCA is unfunded. Our tuition reductions are given to those with financial need based on a system called F.A.I.R., which stands for:
- Financial Need – Assessment is determined by FAST, an independent financial management company that helps confirm the financial need.
- Academics – The academic and behavior record of the student(s) will be considered.
- Involvement – Student(s) and family involvement through volunteer hours will be considered.
- Reference – Each family applying for a tuition reduction is required to obtain a reference from their pastor. Additionally, all faculty whom your child interacts with regularly will be consulted.
Faith Christian Academy also offers tuition discounts for children of students or faculty members of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, senior pastors, and missionaries. Please complete and submit the ministry tuition discount request for consideration, along with the family intent to return form.
