Maybe if I had a tour around the new school before my first day I would have not been so disorientated.

FSH Christian Academy began from the hope of one woman to find a place that her daughter, who received a brain injury and suffered from post-concussion syndrome, could continue her senior year and graduate on time; and the desire of another woman to meet the educational needs of students on an individual basis in small classroom settings. Acquainted with the strengths of homeschooling and private education, Karen Holmes discerned God was changing her career path, but she did not know how or when God would use her.
