Lower School Chapel

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 include a time in which students have the opportunity to praise and worship together 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.

Lower School Chapel takes place on Thursday mornings at 8:20 am on the Stageside of First Orlando’s Faith Hall. Lower School parents are invited and encouraged to attend any and/or all Lower School chapels.
