FCPA opens August 6 in person, virtually

First Preparatory Christian Academy (FPCA) will begin the 2020-2021 school year on Aug. 6, with in-person classrooms and a virtual learning option, according to FPCA Headmaster Dr. Charles Canup.

“We will be offering the parents the option of traditional face to face instruction or virtual instruction,” Dr. Canup said. “We have limited space available across grade levels.”

Dr. Canup said his staff will adhere to a strict sanitization schedule that will include bathrooms and classrooms at designated times throughout the day.  

“All students and faculty will be screened using touchless thermometers anytime they enter the building and at any time faculty/staff deem necessary,” Dr. Canup said. 

For the time being the Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) which governs the athletic activities for FPCA and other private schools, has authorized the play of fall sports.

“FPCA’s Athletic Department and Administration receive regular updates on the status of sports from GISA,” Dr. Canup said. “If allowed, we are playing.  We will strictly adhere to any safety protocols GISA mandates.”

The Georgia High School Association has also given the green light for fall sports. However, the Liberty County School System announced they were suspending all fall athletic and extracurricular activities due to the increases in coronavirus numbers.

For now, FPCA seems to be the only high school sports in Liberty County for the fall.

Anyone interested in enrolling should contact the Registrar at (912) 876-0441, or email at, in the front office to arrange for a tour of the school and to schedule a student interview. 

FPCA is also accepting applications for qualified substitutes for the 2020-2021 school year.  Contact the Registrar to sign-up.
