Frequently Asked Questions
What curriculum do you use?
The primary vehicle for learning at The Father’s House Christian School is the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum, which is built on the five basic elements of learning. These are: 1. Students will learn at a level of curriculum where they can perform. 2. Reasonable goals will be set. 3. Students will be self-controlled and motivated. 4. Learning will be measurable. 5. Learning will be rewarded.
Is there a dress code?
The guidelines for student dress code are: modesty, neatness and cleanliness. A full uniform is to be worn every day, except on designated casual days. Gym clothes are to be available at school every day to accommodate any unexpected change in the schedule. Uniforms should be neat, clean, and modest. Parents are to ensure that their children wear appropriate outside clothing and footwear for the weather conditions as the students will be outdoors at least once almost every day. Students are expected both to arrive at school and to leave from school in uniform. Permission from the teacher is required for exceptions. All items brought/worn into school are required to be clearly labelled (uniforms, footwear, outerwear, mittens). Easy to use labels can be purchased at www.oliverslabels.com/MCS
Please contact the school for a complete description of the dress code.
What is the merit store?
Students earn merits in many ways: by passing PACE tests, doing volunteer work, completing special projects, and memorizing Scripture, etc. The merits are spent at the merit store for the purchase of items they select. Students participate in shopping at the merit store twice each month.
