    “Our goal is to redirect students’ focus away from technology and screens and toward learning and building practical life skills,” said Aristo Torres, Faith Family Academy principal.

    “Students will not only learn how to problem-solve, be prepared for middle school or high school, and navigate the outdoors, they will also have the opportunity to learn teamwork, foster intellectual and interpersonal growth, and nurture friendships.“
