I read the previous email and was appauled. There should be a place for anouther side of the story. The Duvalls dont know I am sending this....but I feel I should do something to help them-- because they have helped so many.
I have 3 kids that attended FCA for 6yrs. My last graduated from FCA 2yrs ago. Each of my kids received multiple academic scholarships starting with San Jacinto College, then University of Houston and now my oldest is at Baylor on a large scholarship. We were relocating here from Louisiana, Hurricane Rita. The first two years Mrs. Duvall was my oldest two kids (boy & girl) teacher. She was the greatest teacher they ever had. They were academic behind and hated math. Anyone that knows Mrs. Duvall knows she Loves Math, and helps Kids love Math. She has a way of running her Learning Center structured but exciting and fun. She had a one on one relationship with each student in the school, and she was the High School Teacher and the Principal. The 1st year at FCA there was 155 students !
I sat on the Parent Advisory Board 3 of the 6yrs we were there. The first year I was a part of the Parent Advisory Board I learned about the foundation of the FCA Scholarship Fund. This Scholarship Fund was created by a burning passion that every family should have the opportunity to have their student take part in a quality education that teaches Strong Academics with Values and Character. The Scholarship Fund was not made up of corporate donations. Instead, Mrs. Duvall decided to create the fund from within. She took 15-20% (Dollar amount) of the tuition income and allotted that amount to be given back out in the form of scholarship money to parents.
Mr. and Mrs. Duvall have a love and dedication to kids from all walks of live. Yes, your right.they have no tolerance for teachers that dont want to teacher, and just draw a check or TEACH a TEST.
