The residents of FFCH are educated by three different school districts. The five facilities located in Fredericktown, MO (Faith, Integrity, Mercy, Joy and Grace) are through the Fredericktown R-I school district, the facility in Ironton, MO (Peaceful Valley) is through the Arcadia Valley R-II school district. Our newest home, Hope House, runs through the Poplar Bluff school district. The schools along with FFCH administration meet to determine the educational setting that is best suited for each individual. The Homes in Fredericktown attend FALC (Fredericktown Alternative Learning Center). If a child is doing well in this setting then they may have the opportunity to attend Fredericktown’s public school system at the discretion of the school and play and participate in extracurricular activities. The children at Peaceful Valley in Ironton attend public school if they are in elementary and an Alternative Safe School located on the grounds of the Arcadia Valley Public school if they are in high school. They too, have the opportunity to go to public school and play and participate in sports and extracurricular activities. The same is for Hope House in Poplar Bluff. All education is through the Missouri Public school system and Individual Education Plans are kept up-to-date and diagnostic testing is available to see if individuals qualify for specific services provided by each district.
