WHY WE OPERATE THE WAY WE DO

Basic to the philosophy of Fountain City Christian School is the fact that children, parents, and teachers are partners in promoting a quality Christ-centered education. Through interactive, supportive relationships between the home and school contexts, students have a better opportunity to develop their potential as a total person.

At the heart of the education process reside the children and their unique needs, interests and abilities. Each student is accepted as a valuable and unique individual, loved by God, and capable of growth toward the highest spiritual, personal and academic achievement consistent with his/ her ability. This requires the setting of high educational standards and providing each child with the appropriate learning environment and educational experiences to achieve these goals.

    • We believe every child is loved by God and is created in His image.
    • We believe every child can learn.
    • We provide appropriate guidance, experiences and materials for learning.
    • We invite children to share the responsibility for their education, recognizing that they learn best when actively involved.
    • We encourage cooperative learning: child/parent, child/child, child/teacher.
    • We maintain learning goals for which we are accountable.
    • We direct all our efforts toward developing curious, thoughtful, life-long learners who honor God and serve others.

Fountain City Christian School’s Statement of Instructional Strategies

    • We stand for a strong basic curriculum: reading, writing, arithmetic. We expect our children to grow up literate
    • In addition, we regard Bible, science, social studies, music, the arts, foreign language, physical and health education, as
      essential parts of a core curriculum.
    • We favor an integrated curriculum as the most natural and practical way to learn.
    • We educate all aspects of our children. We care about spiritual, social, emotional, and physical well being, as well as academic
      success.
    • We believe that high expectations will help bring about high achievement.
    • We foster self-respect in our children, and cultivate respect for all others in our school, child and adult alike.
    • We encourage a diversity of teaching styles, approaches, and methods.
    • We recognize the differences in children, not only the diversity in their learning styles, but also cultural differences.
    • We advocate for children, and our efforts on their behalf are positive and nurturing.
    • We teach by example.
