Firm Foundations

Christian Academy & Learning Center

Firm Foundations is first and foremost dedicated to preparing the next generation to serve in God’s Kingdom. We are partnering with parents to provide the spiritual, social, academic, physical and emotional ingredients necessary to form a “firm foundation” for life.

We offer ABEKA curriculum. This is educational material from a Christian perspective based on the inerrant Word of God. Your child will learn the necessary skills to succeed in his/her future academic and vocational experience.

We are looking forward to being a part of your child’s life and sharing the love of God with your family.

“Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; But those who hope in the Lord will receive new strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be afraid.” Isaiah 40:30-31

FFCA Mission Statement

Our Mission is to develop students with Christian character and a Biblical worldview, who achieve their highest potential. Our foundation is the Word of God and its teaching.

The Cornerstone of Firm Foundations Christian Academy is its commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It is truly our desire that “in everything He might come to have the supremacy” (Colossians 1:18).

Our Goal is that each student would be equipped to pursue God’s plan for his/her life while being salt and light in a decaying and lost world.

Our Prayer for our students is “...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give (them) the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that (they) may know Him better… and that the eyes of (their) hearts may be enlightened…” (Ephesians 1:17-18a)


Weekday Care

Thank you for choosing us as your child’s ‘Foundation’ for early education. Your child will receive the best possible preparation for their Kindergarten experience by preceding it with our A BEKA curriculum. We look forward to getting to know you and your family and being able to work alongside you in this important time in our student’s life.

Through the A BEKA program, your child will become adept at letter recognition and phonetic blending, number identification and concepts, along with increased vocabulary skills and full knowledge of the proper behaviors necessary to enter a Kindergarten classroom.

Our prayer is that both you and your child will feel comfortable and loved here. Also, that you will share with us any prayer requests or concerns that you may have. Galatians 6:2 exhorts us to “bear one another’s burdens”. We want to encourage you and your family and make known all requests unto our Heavenly Father. Please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions or would like to schedule time to meet with me and/or your students teacher.

God Bless!
Chyrie Walls
Weekday Care Director



Latchkey is a very unique time here at Firm Foundations. It is our goal to support the transition time from home to school and from school to home. We provide a safe and loving Christian environment for students in Kindergarten through 12 years of age. They will spend time with friends and counselors building relationships and doing fun activities as they wait to move on to their next destination.
