Student Life: Academic + Spiritual
City First Christian Academy is more than a school—it’s a community that offers stability, encouragement, structure, friendship, school spirit, fun and prayerful support. Our Warriors receive well-rounded curriculum through our exceptional academic program, which integrates Christian faith into every aspect. It is an environment where depths of character are explored, and love and integrity are both taught and expected.
Students who attend CFCA:
- Discover a relationship with God
- Develop a lifestyle of growth
- Deploy their gifts through serving
- Demonstrate God’s love to the world
We cultivate these through:
- School-wide character curriculum
- Weekly chapel service
- Student Chapel worship team
- Community service activities
We encourage parents to join us in the process of instilling positive character in our students through a biblically-based curriculum that includes a priority for valuing all people and much more. We want to establish in children how to have Godly character and to exemplify God in their actions every day.
Our three-year Character Curriculum cycle introduces one new character trait each month. The topic is discussed in class, chapel, on the playground, in the lunchroom and is highlighted in our Work, Care, Serve Program. Every grade discusses the same scripture and talks about the principles.
Preschool through Elementary: Students have a monthly memory verse that goes along with the character trait for the month. By having students memorize the verse for the entire month, they retain the verse in long-term memory.
Middle through High School: Students review the same character trait in Bible class, along with class commentaries.
Parents: Parents can find the Character Curriculum theme in the teacher’s regular update, which includes the character trait your child is learning, the verse they are memorizing, and discussion points. Our hope is that you will take an opportunity to connect with your child about the character trait and share a story from your own life of when you learned a valuable lesson related to each topic and how God guided you through it. In Deuteronomy, Moses is talking to the children of Israel and instructs them to teach their children to love the Lord and follow Him. He says to tell your children stories to “Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up (Deuteronomy 6:7).” Children love to hear their parents tell stories! What better way to help your child learn about the heart of God than through conversation and your own life lessons?
We hope you will partner with us in this process and engage your child at home!
