Quick Info

Far West Academy is a Preschool – 12th Grade, faith-based, non-profit, private school. Our mission is to develop the whole child: mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

We are committed to helping our students, “do all things through Christ” (Philippians 4:13) who strengthens them. High academic achievement, professional, and personal success are all possible for our students as they develop with the light of Christ.


At Far West Academy, our preschool program starts at 6 weeks old to 5 years and sets the foundation for educational and social success. It is designed to teach the whole child through a blend of hands on learning, teacher guided activities, spiritual guidance, and active play. Our teachers are certified professionals who strive to help and guide students as they grow in to independent learners.

We currently use the Abeka preschool curriculum which teaches traditional preschool curriculum along with Christian values. It allows the students to learn through a mix of music, reading, math, art, drama, social studies, science, and physical activities that aims toward improving small and large motor skills. In addition, the students take a Music and Spanish class to expand their learning environment from just the classroom.

Here at Far West Academy, we strive to guide each student individually through their own personal needs and goals. With parent support, we know we can help students grow through these beginning stages.


We having loving and caring teachers in our lower school, small class sizes, and opportunities every day to grow mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Because of our small class sizes, our teachers get to know the strengths and weaknesses of their students and can individualize the instruction. In addition to reading, writing, and arithmetic, our students study music, art, Spanish, and physical education.

We welcome parent help and work diligently to communicate with our parents in order to form a team focused on helping the individual student.

We use the Abeka curriculum. Click on the link to learn more.


Our Middle School is compartmentalized giving our students the opportunities to study a variety of subjects, both academic and elective.  The study of music, Spanish, and physical education continue at the secondary level.  This is a time for growth in all areas as students begin to grow into young adults.

Even though it is natural and right for students of this age to begin to exercise independence, we still welcome parent involvement and communication.

The Middle School is also using the Abeka curriculum.

Blended Learning

Simply put, blended learning is a combination of the best of a traditional brick and mortar school with the best of on-line instruction.  It is not simply the use of technology in the classroom.  It essentially has three parts:

  1. “Blended learning is any formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online learning, with some element of the student control over time, place, path, and or pace.
  2. The student learns in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home.  In other words, the student attends a physical school with real flesh and blood teachers.
  3. The modalities (modes or manners) along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.   This means that if students are learning U.S. history in a blended way, the online and face-to-face components work together to deliver an integrated (coordinated or harmonious) course.

Our secondary levels are compartmentalized giving our students the opportunities to study a variety of subjects, both academic and elective.  The study of music, Spanish, and physical education, continue at the secondary level.  This is a time for growth in all areas as students begin to grow into the adults they will be some day.

Even though it is natural and right for students of this age to begin to exercise independence, we still welcome parent involvement and communication.

I am very particular about schools for my daughter, Alisi, who is 7. I wanted a school that will offer her the same loving and caring environment that I offer at home. Since my daughter will be spending at least 7 hours a day at school, I want her to learn, but at the same time be able thrive in her environment. Walking in the office and having a picture of Jesus Christ at the school already put a peaceful feeling in my heart. Administration staff always treated me with kindness and respect and it trickled down to the teachers. I always felt uplifted after talking with Brother Lamb and Sister Payne. This is when I knew they would treat my daughter the same way. Sister Mears was such an awesome teacher. She communicated daily/ weekly on class dojo, provided a caring environment, and was consistent and prepared. Sister Harris was inspiring with the music program and my daughter picked up the ukulele so fast and participated in the Talent Show. She truly cared about my daughter. Her Spanish teacher Hermana Kidd was the sweetest teacher who taught my daughter how to pray in Spanish, and I’m thankful prayer is allowed at this school. In addition , my daughter loved GaGa ball game she learned in P.E., from Brother Stratton. All of the teachers and Admin staff have left a positive influence on my family. I drove about 45min to get to the school everyday, and they were always understanding if we were little late. The drive this year was so worth it knowing I trusted the people I left my daughter with. Thank you FarWest Academy for an amazing uplifting year! Kindness goes a long way, and I felt that tremendously at FWA. If we weren’t moving out of state, we would be back next year in a heartbeat!!!”

“The staff at Far West Academy is warm, friendly, and loving.  It is a wonderful place for my child to attend.  I know that my student is receiving a quality education that fosters character development.  Far West has been a blessing to my child and my entire family.  We are very grateful for this school and the men and women who work there. Our first grade teacher is the best! We just love her.”

“I went to many different schools to find one that would be a fit for Kyleen. She hated School because of the way the kids treated her. The teachers could care less about helping her or what was happening. Far West Academy has changed all that.  Her teachers care more then I could ever imagined.  The kids are also awesome. She is happier then she has ever been and is able to go to High School with peace of mind.
We are truly blessed to find this School.”

Mother of a High School Student

“I picked FWA because of the heart of the school and the teachers and staff that work here.  They have been a blessing to my family.   I enjoy the small class sizes and how all students are accepted by others.  FWA has proven to be more than just a school, but a family.”

Far West Academy is like a safe haven for my children. I don’t have to worry about their safety . I am so greatful for the opportunity to have the teacher’s l did for my family. Not only do I have my own 3 children attending, but my 2 nieces and nephew also attend. They all LOVE their teacher’s. Our students are genuinely happy and have such a close connection. But the best part of that is when you join us, you will be welcomed right into the fold with open arms. We have a strong staff of parents who know what it’s like to want your children to be happy at school. My kids absolutely love this school. They actually miss school whenever we’re on break. NOT being in the drudge of public school has been a blessing to our families. Our kid’s aren’t under pressure, they feel welcomed everyday and everyone knows their name. You will be recognized as part of our family here at Far West.
