Statement of Purpose
Simply stated, the purpose of Faith West Academy is to provide EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE for our students in a CHRISTIAN ENVIRONMENT.
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence ~~ 2 Peter 1:3
EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE – shall be defined as the attainment of the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve excellence in academic and productive endeavors undertaken during and beyond attendance at Faith West Academy. The achievement of excellence for each student shall be defined as being equipped to fulfill his or her God-given potential. Faith West Academy shall provide educational excellence for all students who 1) have needs it can meet and 2) fulfill enrollment requirements. The mean achievement test composite score for Faith West Academy students as a group shall be in the top 25% of students tested nationally.
CHRISTIAN ENVIRONMENT – The Christian environment is most notably characterized by love, peace, and joy. In this atmosphere, Faith West Academy students shall be taught by teachers who believe and live such Christian principles as “seek ye first the kingdom of God” and “love your neighbor as yourself.” Students shall receive ministry that will help them develop a positive self-image as well as love and respect for authority and their fellow students. We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, beastiality, transgender conduct, incest and use of pornography) is in opposition to the Biblical standard for sexual behavior. Faith West Academy seeks to integrate Christian faith and academic learning so that God is glorified, non-believers come into relationship with God, believers mature in principle and practice, and believers are trained in Christian service and ministry to others.
PARENT INVOLVEMENT – For the education program at Faith West Academy to be a success it is absolutely essential that parents assist and support both students and staff through involvement, encouragement and prayer. It is our goal to communicate this to all parents upon enrollment and throughout the school year.
