Q&A with Admissions Assistant, Chelsie Scheffer

Zoe Zamora
Chelsie Scheffer has been a part of the Fort Bend Christian Academy team since the spring of 2016. You can find Chelsie in the Office of Admissions as the Admissions Assistant and also serving as the Eagle Varsity Cheer Team Assistant Coach. 
Chelsie has a wealth of experience and knowledge regarding Fort Bend Christian Academy. Not only does she serve our prospective and new families wholeheartedly, but she also walks alongside current staff, students, and families with ease and excellence.

Q: What can new families look forward to as they prepare to begin a new school year with FBCA? 

A: I often say, "Welcome to the Fort Bend Christian Academy family" when talking with new families who have come to FBCA. When you see "Together We Soar," we mean it! This community comes together to love and support one another. FBCA often reminds me of the early churches Luke spoke about in Acts Chapter 2. 

"Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people." Acts 2:46-47

Q: What resources are available for new families as they acclimate to life at FBCA? 

A: Many individuals on campus can be a source to you as you transition into FBCA. The Mentor Moms have a wealth of knowledge and are eager to connect with you! The Booster Club is a great way to not only support Eagle athletes but to stay connected to all athletic activities. I may be biased, but the Swoop Club is one of the coolest ways to support FBCA! Moms in Prayer is a huge blessing to this community, and I know they are always looking for individuals who want to love our students and staff through prayer! 

Q: What kind of extracurriculars can new students be a part of? 

A: Lower, Middle and Upper school each have unique opportunities to be involved beyond the classroom! Be it our sports teams for students in 6th-12th grade, clubs offered during community time, various Bible Studies for our Upper School students, or academic-based clubs, there is a spot for every student! 

Q: How do you see the mission of FBCA play into the lives of students? 

A: 1 Thessalonians 2:8 gives the best picture of FBCA that I can think of. It reads, "So we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well." 

Through Chapel, daily Bible lessons, and Theology courses, students are walking alongside the FBCA staff to learn and grow in faith. Academically our students are prepared across campus to be prepared for life beyond FBCA. Speaking with recent alumni each year during Homecoming, I always hear the phrase, "college is so easy." I am quick to remind them that college is not easy, but they were simply prepared well. 

Fort Bend Christian Academy has over 130 staff, faculty, and coaches who pray daily for and with students, leading them to look more like Christ in everything that they do.
