Curriculum

Curriculum Overview

Faith Academy offers a Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 program, which utilizes a blend of U.S. and Cambridge International curricula to accommodate the diverse population of children we serve. The school has implemented the Common Core standards for Mathematics and Language Arts, and it has adopted the curricula of highly-regarded US states for most other subjects. The standards and benchmarks which support the curriculum have been modified to suit our international context and Christian values.

Advances Placement (AP)

Students in Grades 11 and 12 may opt to take Advanced Placement courses, which are externally examined. AP courses are essential for those entering universities in most Commonwealth countries, as well as in Korea and Europe. For students planning to study in the US, AP courses offer the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement. The AP Capstone coursework allows students to earn a special certificate, as well as an additional diploma from the College Board. Faith currently offers AP courses in the following subjects:

  • Literature
