2024 Summer Term

During the month of July, Faith Builders operates a five-week term. We offer courses during this term designed to prepare and equip teachers in K-12 settings.

Good teachers are always learning and growing, increasing their knowledge and skills as teachers while developing wisdom and character as persons. Summer Term provides an opportunity for teachers to invest in both dimensions of growth. Many teachers have found that the challenge and discipline of Summer Term courses have increased their effectiveness as teachers. Many schools are encouraging that investment by offering financial support to teachers attending Summer Term at Faith Builders.
