Preparation for College & Beyond

Our high school offers an academically challenging curriculum underpinned by sound biblical principles so students are prepared academically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally for any opportunities and challenges they face. While high school may be the final step in a student’s academic experience at FPD, we know that it is not the final chapter in their journey. When FPD students graduate, they are prepared to attend some of our nation’s finest colleges and universities, serve as leaders in their communities, and share God's love wherever they venture.

1-to-1 Technology Program

In 2013, FPD implemented the 1-to-1 Initiative with each student in fifth through twelfth grade receiving a school-issued tablet pc on which to complete his or her assignments. Since students and teachers operate from the same devices, classes can collaborate effectively and use the devices for further study and research.

Courses and Curriculum

FPD’s high school offers two tracks for students – a college-preparatory track or an honors track. Both prepare students to excel in college with the tools and skills needed to perform well in college courses. The honors track offers additional honors and AP classes. Students are encouraged to speak with the high school principal and college counselor if they have questions about course options.
