What you need to know
FSSM meets Wednesday nights from 6:00PM-9:30PM from September through to May. As well as the second Saturday of each month for Outreach.
Currently the First Year class size averages at approximately 20 students. Second Year class averages about 12. Additionally an Intern is assigned to each student to be a key source of support and help (each intern oversees approximately 3-5 students).
Each First and Second Year class is then broken up into small groups of 4-6 students which meets regularly during class time.
FSSM is focused on personal transformation. And because we are a part time school, the homework is key to maintain learning, growing, and connection throughout the year. There are no grades given, but participation and timely completion of homework are expected. The goal of assignments is for you to grow wisdom and favor, not just to gain knowledge, but also to draw you into an encounter with God and give you an opportunity to increase in favor as you practice faithfulness, integrity and honor in everything that you do. We desire all students to receive revelation, inspiration, and impartation through the assignments that are given.
There are a mixture of assignments due at the competition of each book read consisting of either a SIMPLE book reports, workbook questions, as well as a couple very creative and fun presentation. Don't let the homework scare you from attending school! The homework is primarily FOR YOU and is not meant to purely be a burden. If you have concerns about certain assignments you are always welcome to talk with our school administrator to find out how YOU CAN complete all assignments successfully.
Reading on your own time is expected and is a large part of our curriculum. There are approximately 2000 pages of mandatory reading throughout the year. That works out to 6-8 pages of reading every day of the 9 months of school from beginning to graduation. That’s on top of 2–3 chapters of the Word daily. So plan on reading 30–60 minutes a day, minimum. Thankfully, it’s all amazing, life-transforming content.
