Firm Foundation Early Learning Academy began August 9, 2010 with only 9 students and five full and part-time teachers. We waited with baited breath as the Lord began to unfold His plan for the new academy of the Abundant Life Church. It still amazes the teachers to see how the Lord orchestrates everyone to work together as a team. Each child is instructed and nurtured by every teacher. There are no ‘lone rangers’. “Each joint supplies another” to insure that each student receives all they need to succeed.
We've completed two very successful years of studying and growing in God's grace daily. To enhance our progressive curriculum, we've added Robotics to the afterschool program and have also implemented plans which will allow us to explore the fields of alternative or renewable energy, gardening and the science of flying. We're very excited about the upcoming year, awaiting new teachers, new students and the new fields of study.
Firm Foundation is the education program for the Abundant Life Church in Lithonia,, Georgia. The vision that God placed in the heart of Woodrow and Francine Walker has grown and expanded like the mustard seed which Jesus likened to the Kingdom of God in Mark 4:30-32. The prophecies, which state that “Abundant Life would be a church without walls”, is being fulfilled as it continues to “bridge the gap, change mindsets and transform cultures to the standard of Christ”. Firm Foundation is part of that vision. Our mission is to teach and nurture students in science, math, history, language arts as well as enrich their learning experience with art, music and foreign language. We are committed to introduce each child to Christ, sharing His life, His love and His Word. It is our desire to encourage future leaders to be totally committed to Christ.
