No one can teach a child all (s)he needs to learn. Therefore, FCS strives to teach a child how to learn. God has created us as curious beings. Our teachers nurture that natural curiosity by creating opportunities for students to participate in hands-on activities, allowing students to develop critical thinking skills which can be applied in new situations.
Some examples of our active learning have been:
Re-enacting Pilgrim life
Composing a song to learn a character trait
Creating models of ocean habitats
Jumping on a giant number line
Designing miniature theatre sets
Finding the precious promises of God in a treasure chest
What do we teach?
Gospel-centered Bible lessons with a focus on God and His work through Christ
An appreciation of reading through Christian reading curriculum
A structured phonics and grammar program
How to make oral presentations
An immersion science program that explores God's world
Literature-based history and geography
Fairmont Christian School desires for children to grow in...
...faith by integrating Biblical truth throughout the day using Scripture, prayer, and praise to God.
...discovery and love of learning by nurturing a sense of curiosity.
...learning through intentional instruction and practice of character traits.
