  • Frontier is a K-5 elementary school and will add 6th grade starting in the 07-08 school year. My kids have attended FCA for about 5 years now. We could not be happier.

    The teachers are very highly qualified with all having at least a bachelors degree, some having a masters and above, and the rest only hours away from acquiring their masters as well. They love our kids and know them on a personal level. The classroom sizes are small so our kids get more one on one attention that at most schools.

    The leadership of FCA is great. I have never seen such a cohesive team of staff, board members and parent volunteers. While the local schools rate below average, FCA rates average with significant improvement. FCA is only 6 years old and had improved in every area each year. We are expecting continued improvement in the future, thereby significantly surpassing all schools in the area.

    In my opinion, you cannot beat FCA. My kids will attend this school until they graduate out.
