Your residence home is much more than a place where you eat and sleep. It's the place where you experience life with others; it is a place to live and interact with other students who each have interesting backgrounds and experiences; a place where you develop lifelong friendships; where you read books, write papers, and discuss assignments with your peers. Your residence home is a place where you grow in your relationship with the Lord through prayer gatherings and Bible studies. It's a place where you are loved by Christian houseparents who have a God-given desire to see you grow in every area of your life.
Most of our homes have eight rooms with two students living in each room. Either rooms are joined by a bathroom (suite) or a common bathroom is shared. A cozy living room is typically located in the front of the house where students can stretch out to watch television or chat with other students. A kitchen and laundry room are also located in the homes so that students can take care of daily responsibilities. The houseparents have an apartment connected to the home, providing students with just the right amount of accountability and supervision.
Every home has a married couple, often with children of their own, giving the kind of family stability that youths need. These couples are loving "parents" to our boarding students for most of the year.
The environment of the home is strengthened by the many dedicated Christian men and women who serve as teachers, administrators, work directors, and valuable friends on the FCA staff.
