Friends International Christian Academy
FICA is a new mission school located in Kyanja, Kampala. The school operates under the International curriculum: Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) from 1st through 12th grade. The School is training and certifying its students to the ICDL Standard.
Their programs are designed to train and teach the next generation to serve God in wherever they are. For this reason, the curriculum advocates the following characteristics:
Individualized Instruction: The curriculum stands firm on the fact that each child is an individual. For admission to the program, the child is given a diagnostic test to determine skill and concept mastery, as well as to identify the child’s academic needs. The results of the test are then used to determine the grade level of the child.
Self-instruction and Mastery - Children assume responsibility for their own learning and set their academic goals with the future in mind. Additionally, the curriculum allows for mastery of academic content and development of character through the focus on knowledge, understanding, and wisdom acquisition.
Computer based instruction – The school offers a computer program ‘Read master Plus’ that trains in typing, math, and vocabulary skills. Advanced students are given an interactive computer package, Future Kids/ICDL, that offers skills in cutting-edge computer applications.
