Faith Christian Academy has partnered with Central Christian College of Kansas (CCCK) and Missouri Western State University (MWSU) to offer several classes for dual credit. Both colleges are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and both are members of the North Central Association.
In this program, students can earn both high school and college credit, at the same time, for a reduced college tuition rate. Students may earn a maximum of 21 hours of college credit. 2020-2021 dual-credit classes available to juniors and seniors are:
|Grade||High School Class||College Title||Credits Earned|
|11th||American Literature||EN-LT 205 Intro to Literature||2 credits|
|11th||Worldview III||MT-PH 261 Introduction to Philosophy||3 credits|
|11th/12th (Fall)||Music Online||MUS103 Fundamentals of Music||2 credits|
|11th/12th (Spring)||Music Online||MUS103 Fundamentals of Music||3 credits|
|12th (fall)||Political Theory||SS-PO 203 American Government||3 credits|
|12th (fall)||Advanced Literature||EN-CP 103 English Composition I||3 credits|
|12th (spring)||Civics||SS-PO 210 History, Civics and Social Responsibility||3 credits|
|12th (spring)||Advanced Literature||EN-CP 104 English Composition II||3 credits|
|12th||Worldview IV||MT-PH 364 Contemporary Culture||3 credits|
All dual-credit classes, with the exception of music, are offered simultaneously with regular FCA classes. They are taught on the FCA campus by FCA teachers who serve as adjunct faculty with CCCK. The workload is the same – there is no additional work required to get college credit. There is, however, a fee of $85 (per credit hour), in addition to FCA tuition. This fee is significantly less than what a student will be charged for each class once in college.
Music Online classes are offered online through MWSU and require work outside of FCA classtime. The fees for these online courses are different from the fees for CCCK courses but are still a great value.
Enrollment for dual credits takes place each fall. Juniors and seniors will be notified by email when registration opens. Contact FCA’s College and Career Advisor, for more information about this program.
