Summer Term

Dates: 
Jun 28, 2021 to Jul 30, 2021
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.

Many teachers have found that the challenge and discipline of Summer Term courses has increased their effectiveness as teachers. Good teachers are always learning and growing, increasing their knowledge and skills while developing as individuals. Summer Term provides an opportunity for teachers to invest in their capabilities as a teacher. Many schools and churches are encouraging that investment by offering financial support to teachers attending Summer Term at Faith Builders.

While the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be coming under control, there is a possibility that we will need to implement some mitigation efforts to avoid an outbreak during Summer Term. We will provide details to students before the term.
