This Week at Faith Academy:
 February 6-10, 2017

“When you invest in a life entrusted to the care of Faith Academy, you invest in GOOD SOIL. NEVER under-estimate the POWER and LIFE found in one seed…the seed that God has put in your hand, entrusted to your care. We live in a generation that desperately needs godly leaders, and Faith Academy is giving themselves to raise them up!”

Speaker at the 2017 Faith Gala

Calculus Class Takes Flight: This past Tuesday Faith Academy calculus students took learning to new heights when they convened class at IFLY in Austin. Once they arrived and received some background instruction, their goal was to calculate their personal terminal velocity, which occurs when the IFLYer is stable or when there is no acceleration in either direction. Once the calculations were completed, each student was able to try out the IFLY wind tunnel.
 
“Not only did our students thoroughly enjoy the field trip to IFLY, but it provided them an opportunity to apply what they have been studying in the classroom in a real world setting,” said Faith Academy calculus teacher Dona Birkhead.
 
Upcoming Faith Academy calculus students hope that the IFLY trip becomes an annual tradition.

Coach Flanagan 361-442-9341 Coach Becker 830-385-1594.
