Vision Statement

Frederick Adventist Academy provides a dynamic learning environment to challenge students to reach their highest potential.

FAA’s curriculum educates the whole child. The school provides diverse opportunities to cultivate spiritual growth, mastery of core subjects, health, the arts, the use of technology, and respect for God’s environment. Students are challenged to explore, experiment, and solve problems, and to do so in an environment that fosters a climate of growth and nurturance of life-long learning.

FAA’s students are active learners. The children learn critical thinking and participate in varied aspects of hands-on learning. Students engage actively, positively, and meaningfully in the world, as effective leaders and communicators, and with strong, Christ-centered values.

FAA’s certified teachers are dedicated to quality education. Teachers, along with our staff and volunteers, are committed to the process of growth, service to others, to exploration, and engaging learning. They provide an atmosphere that promotes spiritual commitment to the tenets of Christianity, moral and character development, and service to God and others.

FAA ultimately desires to develop young scholars who will mature to become leaders in their communities, effective managers of their resources, and catalysts for positive change – active learners whose FAith in Action will span a lifetime and into the eternal realm of Christian citizenship.
