In support of The First Academy’s mission to prepare children for life as Christian leaders, Lower School Chapel is an integral part of the overall school experience. Weekly chapels includes a time in which students have the opportunity to corporately praise and worship through engaging and meaningful songs. There is also a Bible-centered lesson either through a guest speaker, individual class or grade level presentation. Both of these components, worship and lessons, help students learn the importance of worship and the study of God’s Word with a focus on the biblical truths that they are learning as part of the Lower School Bible curriculum. In addition to a continued emphasis on the school year theme, chapel will focus on a different biblical character trait, each month, including the following:
