For those that need assistance with tuition, the State of Florida offers several programs. First Christian Academy is approved by the State of Florida to participate in the programs listed below:
Florida Voluntary Pre Kindergarten Program (VPK)
This program is designed to prepare four-year-olds for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. The program allows a parent to enroll his or her eligible child (four years old by September 1 and residing in Florida) in a free VPK program. The program is voluntary for children and providers. A school-year program consists of 540 instructional hours.
First Christian Academy’s Preschool Program offers two VPK classes. Our 5 day VPK class is 3.75 hours of instruction each day (morning hours of 8:45 AM till 12:30 PM) and our 3 day VPK class is 5 hours of instruction Monday, Wednesday and Friday (hours of 8:45 am to 2:00 pm). Either of these programs are paid for by the State of Florida for those children that meet the State’s requirements. Our Preschool Program also offers an extended day option for those parents who desire a full day of preschool activities. The fees for these extended hours are the responsibility of the parents.
March 2012: First Christian Academy’s pre school was just awarded the highest VPK readiness score of any school in the area for the second year in a row, a perfect 100.
