In 2011, First Class Clackamas Teens was started as an offshoot of First Class Happy Valley Co-op as an academic community for homeschool teens. This program was birthed from seeing the need for teens to gain more academic instruction and social interaction with peers in a program designed just for them while still being homeschooled.
We offer classes on Mondays for 16 weeks per term, including a student-led chapel, as well as special events and field trips.
FCCT is for junior high and senior high school age students age 12-18. Participating students must be 12 yrs. old by November 1st and 18 or under by the beginning of the term.
FCCT Statement of Faith
I. The Word of God: The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)
II. The Trinity: Within the one Being that is God, there has existed from all eternity three coequal Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14, John 1:1-2, 14)
III. Salvation: All men are in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and act. (Romans 3:23 and 5:12, Ephesians 2:1-2) Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to by faith, not by any personal works, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone. (Acts 13:38-39; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)
