Academics and Requirements

  • Explanation of Program

    Faith Academy is an AdvancED accredited high school. Faith Academy is a school with a non-traditional approach to education. We have a "non-traditional" design for instruction. Our method of instruction involves a highly disciplinary approach and assists the student's ability to work independently. The students may receive tutorial or small group instruction. All instructors at Faith Academy are qualified and approved for their subject of instruction. The number of courses a student may take strictly follows the guidelines of the Georgia Board of Education. Diplomas from Faith Academy are accepted at colleges and technical schools.

    Each week the student will receive weekly assignments. The student will come into the campus once a week to submit their completed assignments. Every six weeks the student will take proctored exams on campus. Students are required to attend and complete science labs at the school. The student must complete weekly assignments, weekly discussion boards if applicable, six-week tests, and final exams to receive credit for the semester. If a student wants to transfer back to public school, they might be required by the public school to take an entrance exam.
