Franklin Christian Academy Senior Daniel Allen earned his Eagle Scout, the highest advancement rank in Scouting, earlier this year.
To earn the Eagle Scout rank, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. Although many options are available to demonstrate proficiency in these areas, a number of specific skills are required to advance through the ranks—Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. To advance, a Boy Scout must meet specific requirements ranging from tenure in a unit and leadership positions to the earning of merit badges.
Daniel has been in Boy Scouts for 10 years and for his Eagle Scout project he worked on a flag pole for Franklin Christian Academy. He completed his project last summer and officially received his Eagle Scout honor in February 2019.
Franklin Christian Academy (FCA), the only accredited Christian middle school and high school in Franklin, has openings in 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th grade for the 2019-2020 school year.
FCA stands on three pillars: Challenging Academics, Life-Giving Community, and Transforming Discipleship.
Because FCA is a small school, students have opportunities to simultaneously delve into academics, the arts, athletics, and student leadership/ministry. Educators work together when scheduling practices and events, to allow students’ participation in multiple areas.
School tours are available on Thursdays. Call 615-599-9229 to schedule a tour.
