Partners with Indiana Wesleyan University to create Faith Collegiate dual enrollment program
COLUMBUS, INDIANA, UNITED STATES, August 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — FaithPrep Academy of Indiana, a new private online Christian school opening this fall, will host a series of online and in person Information Sessions next week across the state. These sessions will allow Indiana families looking for online learning options to meet with school leaders and ask questions about this innovative program. A complete list of Information Sessions as well as general program information can be found at www.faithprep.com.
The FaithPrep leaning model provides a unique student experience that promotes personalized learning with a purpose. In collaboration with Stride K12, the leading digital learning company in the country, it offers a world-class online platform and curriculum along with the tools, training, and support needed for successful online learning. It also uses the Servant Learner program from Faith Academics that integrates Christian worldview curriculum and focuses on social and emotional learning, character formation, leadership development, and life preparation. The school’s mission is the help students pursue academic excellence, develop Christian character, and discover their gifts, talents, and purpose to follow God’s calling in life.
One of the distinctive features of FaithPrep is the options for students to take online dual enrollment courses and earn college credits through the Faith Collegiate program as well as career readiness courses and earn industry certification through the Faith Pathways program. Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion will be a lead partner for the dual enrollment courses. The career readiness program is provided through Stride Career Prep.
Students will also be able to attend learning centers or “Faith Centers” in certain locations around the state. These centers will promote socialization with other students, offer faith-enrichment activities and provide general program support. FaithPrep will use several of the IWU Education Centers across the state for their Faith Centers, including those in Indianapolis and Greenwood.
FaithPrep Academy of Indiana is authorized by the same governing board which operates Columbus Christian School. Kendall Wildey will serve as Superintendent of both schools. The school was approved by the Indiana Board of Education and is a participant in the Indiana Choice Scholarship program.
According to Wildey, this new school will compliment and support the growing movement of Christian education around Indiana. “FaithPrep Academy of Indiana is designed for those families seeking a full-time online learning option that provides strong academics in a Christian school environment. With the expansion of the Choice Scholarship program, FaithPrep Academy of Indiana will be able to provide a faith-based school program that is both accessible and affordable to families across the state.”
Enrollment is open to all Indiana residents in grades K-12. Tuition is $6,250 for grades K-5 and $7,250 for grades 6-12. There is a $200 enrollment fee. Fees for Faith Centers and Faith Collegiate courses are additional. IWU alumni and staff get a discount on tuition as an affiliate partner. Under the law that was revised this year, most families in the state will qualify for the Choice scholarship which would cover a significant portion of the school’s tuition and fees. FaithPrep Academy of Indiana begins classes on August 30th but will enroll students throughout the year.
