The Frankfort Christian Academy is excited to announce a new technology integration program for our high school students!

Royals1:1 places iPads into the hands of each of our current high school students, providing them with technology integration with our current curriculum. TFCA has six learning goals for the Royals1:1 initiative: Adaptability, Collaboration, Innovation, Creativity, Productivity, and Ethics. TFCA is committed to integrating these goals into our biblically centered curriculum, providing a world class, 21st century Christian education.


Royals1:1 initiative will foster the development of student adaptability as they learn to integrate the iPad and technology into their daily educational routines.


With the Royals 1:1 initiative, through the implementation of iPad technology, students will have “real-life” opportunities to engage, interact, and minister to peers and others outside our school walls.


Royals1:1 will provide a common platform for students to seek solutions to problems that may seem difficult or challenging.


Royals1:1 will encourage students to think creatively, encouraging “out of the box” thinking in order to create and problem-solve.


Royals1:1 will integrate productivity strategies into curriculum, and will encourage students to utilize these strategies to increase productivity outcomes.


Royals1:1 will provide students authentic opportunities to make ethical choices utilizing a Biblical worldview.

Royals1:1 will provide real-world opportunities for students to utilize technology for the building of Christ’s Kingdom, through Adaptability, Collaboration, Innovation, Creativity, Productivity, and Ethics.

Love. Learn. Lead.

As with most Christian schools, The Frankfort Christian Academy has a mission statement that guides our instruction and decision-making: “The Frankfort Christian Academy partners with Christian parents to provide a Biblically integrated education which equips students to embrace biblical truth, to strive for academic excellence and to exemplify Christ-like servanthood in homes, churches and communities.” Often times, however, the intention of a mission statement can be lost in the wordiness. Therefore we must take it apart to focus on its true meaning, asking the question “What is it that we truly want for our students at TFCA?” 


More than anything, we want students at the The Frankfort Christian Academy to know that they are loved. In Mathew 22:37-39, Jesus tells us that the greatest commandment is to “love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”, he goes on to tell us that the second greatest commandment is to “love your neighbor as yourself”.  We want our students to see the love of Christ in our teachers, administration, and in fellow students. We want our students to know that God loves them and that they need to share that love with others.


At The Frankfort Christian Academy we want our students to learn about God and His WORD.   Not only do we educate the mind, but also the spirit. In order to do this, we must go beyond rote memorization of scripture and provide life-application examples for our students. God’s Word and its impact must be interwoven into every subject area. As it says in Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth!” we too must help our students discern Truth, and use it to guide their choices. True learning must be more than words; it must be a tangible relationship with Christ.


We want students at The Frankfort Christian Academy to lead others to Christ.  The Great Commission in Mathew 28:19 commands us to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. Our prayer for each student is that as they graduate from our school they may go forth into the world and make an impact for Christ. Regardless as to where God calls them to serve, our students will carry Christ’s love and the wisdom of God’s Word with them, and they will be confident to share their faith with others.

Meet Our New Staff, Part 1

There are a lot of new faces around the school, and it'll take us a few posts to introduce them all. Starting off our introductions series, we have three new additions to our faculty and staff team!

Katie Ammon, Administrative Assistant

The 2013-2014 school year marks Katie's first year at TFCA, although Katie has served families and students in the Franklin County Public Schools system for 8 years.  The past 5 years, Katie enjoyed being a stay at home mom to her two children, Taylor Grace and Riley. She is very excited to be serve and be a part of the TFCA family.

Q:  What do you like to do in your free time?
I like to play with my two children, Taylor Grace and Riley, read, walk, bask in the sun, and fellowship with others.

Q:  What is your favorite Bible verse?
I have several that have really inspired me. They are 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Jeremiah 29:11, Ephesians 3:20

Q:  What is the most rewarding thing about being a teacher/working at TFCA?
The most rewarding thing about working at TFCA is serving others.

Thomas Smith, MS/HS Science Teacher

The 2013-14 school year is Mr. Thomas Smith's first at TFCA. He earned his Bachelors of Science in Physics from Mississippi State University, which was followed by some time in the US Army and 4 years of optics research and development at the Air Force Research Laboratories in Dayton. He instructed labs in Physics 1 and 2 at the college level while at MSU and looks forward to teaching at TFCA in a manner that is engaging, thought provoking, and in line with scripture. He and his wife, Leah, and daughter come to us from Church of the Messiah in Xenia, OH and will be looking for a congregation to call home in Frankfort.

Q:  What do you like to do in your free time?
A:   I enjoy organic gardening, Frisbee, carpentry, and various other things.  Hopefully I can get back to gardening before too long, since I need fresh air and sunlight lest I wilt.

Q:  What are you looking forward to most in the 2013-2014 school year?
A:  A new place, a new task, and lots of new people.  This should be quite the adventure!  I look forward to awakening minds to the majesty of God's creation through the fullness of His Word.

Q:  What is your favorite Bible verse?
A:  I find that taking snippets of scripture (often out of context) can be a treacherous.  So, let me give a chapter: Psalm 119.

Summer Reading Check-In

It's summertime, but that doesn't mean you can put your books aside until school starts! Our 4th-12th graders all have summer reading to do and we hope they've gotten much of it done already!

I (Krista) decided to do a little Summer Reading Check-In with three of our English teachers, Mrs. Wainscott (4th-5th Grade), Mrs. Hudson (6th-7th Grade), and Mrs. Gilbert (8th-12th Grade) to make sure they've been hitting the books this summer!

How to Visit TFCA

We want you to visit our school! Why? Because we know that once you visit the school, you'll be able to see the awesome work that God is doing through our faculty, staff, and our students. God's hand is evident all over our school, and we want you to see it!

Scheduling a Visit

It's simple to set up a visit at TFCA! There are several ways to do it:
  1. Call the school at (502) 695 - 0744. Ask for Krista Dulaney, but if she's unavailable, anyone can set up a tour.
  2. Use the Request A Tour form on our website, which will send us your information!
  3. Email Krista Dulaney, TFCA's Director of School Relations, and ask for a tour.
  4. Come to one of our Open House events, where we will have faculty and staff available to take you on a tour and answer your questions!

What To Expect

When you arrive for your scheduled tour, come to the main office of the school. Enter into the reception area and give your name to the person who greets you. TFCA Staff members usually know when a tour is scheduled, so your arrival shouldn't be a surprise! You'll be asked to fill out a short form while you wait; this information is used to follow up with you in the future.

Krista Dulaney does most of our school tours, but other office staff members can do so as well. Sometimes you may be joined by our Principal, Kim Burgess, or Vice Principal, Carrie Beth Tigges. We'll walk you around the school and show you all of the main areas (library, computer labs, multipurpose room, gymnasium, cafeteria, and classrooms) and any other areas that are of particular interest to you. For instance, if you have an incoming 4th grader, we'll be sure to show you all of the classrooms your 4th grader would be in at TFCA. We'll ask you questions along the way to make sure we show you everything your child is interested in!

Depending on the time of year and day you come in to tour, you may get to speak with the teacher(s) for your child's grade and one of our Principals. We'll do our best to answer every question you have or we'll take your information, research your question, and get back with you! You'll leave your tour with an information packet which includes a student application.

Beyond a Tour

Sometimes parents and students want to do more than go on a tour. We can set up a Shadow Day, where the student can sit in on classes with TFCA students. They'll have a student matched with them all day who will take them around, help them find what they need, and introduce them to fellow students! This is an especially good option for middle school and high school students, when the social aspect of a school is so important.
