"Changing a Generation One Child at a Time"
Family Worship Christian Academy is a private Christian institution located in Opelousas, Louisiana. Started in 2005, FWCA offers a rigorous academic program for grades pre-k through 12. Our students are tomorrow's future leaders, and we are determined to help them to become outstanding citizens in a changing world. With an emphasis on academic preparation, moral development, and spiritual growth, FWCA is a campus that helps students reach their fullest potential.
We offer a stimulating learning environment for our students utilizing A Beka curriculum integrated with other research-based curriculum that is challenging for students at every grade level. Our classrooms are equipped with teachers and tools that help to facilitate learning and growth in students.
The mission of Family Worship Christian Academy is to assist each child in reaching his/her fullest potential academically, physically, spiritually, and socially through rigorous academic preparation and a variety of opportunities to explore new horizons.
Through Giving, We Receive
FWCA students are involved in a variety of community service projects throughout the school year. One project, Operation Christmas Child, gives students an opportunity to join forces with Girl Scouts of America to send shoeboxes of necessities and small gifts to children throughout the world. Girl Scout troop members help to collect donated items from students and staff. They then box the items and prepare them for shipment.
In addition, our Mission Team traveled to Tennessee in July 2014 to participate in a nationwide mission effort to help those in need. Our team dug a dry well in record time for an elderly couple. The experience was life-changing for our team as well as the lives they touched. The Mission Team continues their mission efforts locally throughout the year.
Our school also continues to provide monthly support for "Fara" and her family who live in Haiti. Through Worldvision, our students have the opportunity to "Give a dollar, and save a life." Fara's family was adopted by our school as an overseas outreach since 2013.
We are so blessed to take part in projects like these that reach beyond our community and throughout the world. We believe that our students are learning the importance of giving to those in need. The projects also help our students to remember how blessed they are to live in America.
