Why FPD

Choosing a school home for your child is a big decision. Below are a few reasons why FPD is unique in its approach to educating and equipping students. We see each child as a unique gift to our school and would love to speak with you more about the opportunities for your child.

Encouraging Lifelong Learning

We prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind to succeed. Our faculty find unique ways to bring studies to life so students gain a passion for learning and a desire to be lifelong learners.

How does a Christian school stack up academically?

Our unwavering commitment to exemplary academics goes hand-in-hand with building a strong foundation of faith within the hearts and minds of our students. Our AP exam passing rates, SAT scores, and ACT scores surpass state and national averages. FPD is also Macon’s only three-time recipient of the National Blue Ribbon for Exemplary Performance. Our alumni are not only accepted to some of our nation’s top colleges and universities, they are well-prepared to excel in their studies and future careers.


Exploring How to Make a Difference

Our Community Service program goes well beyond volunteerism. We give students the opportunity to see issues face-to-face and explore ways they can have an impact. Starting in elementary school, we encourage servant leadership. We offer multiple opportunities to explore areas within our school, community, nation, and world through which students can share Christ’s love and make an impact for His glory.


Finding Community

FPD offers numerous athletic, academic, and artistic opportunities for students starting in elementary. These provide opportunities for students in all grades to find peers with similar interests and develop strong friendships. Likewise, parents are not alone in their journey to raise their child. We join together as partners, providing helpful guidance and answering questions about a child’s progress and development.


Finding the Best Direction

Students are bombarded with a million messages on which way to go. We provide resources to help them discover their best path. Our teachers and coaches serve as Christian mentors who provide advice along the way. Likewise, we offer opportunities for upperclassmen to mentor younger peers through student mentor groups and student-led chapels.
