Life & Vocational Skills
The men help in building maintenance, grounds-keeping, vehicle repair, cutting firewood, and other practical tasks and chores. The women are trained in preparing meals for students and on-duty staff, and assist in preparing the campus for guests, food preservation, and general housework and campus upkeep. In addition to the regular work, sometimes there are unique projects, such as learning how to prepare and repaint interior walls. Occasionally as part of the afternoon work schedule, men and women have vocational classes on a wide range of topics including everything from drywall repair and basic plumbing to baking bread and making cheese.

Certificates & Academic Standards
While the emphasis at the Institute is primarily spiritual, not academic, a grading system is used and grades are recorded. Transcripts are provided for those who request them. Upon satisfactory completion of each year’s program, students receive certificates of achievement. Graduates of the full three-year course receive special recognition and a diploma.
Fairwood is not academically accredited by a recognized board of accreditation. Its program is unique. Based on the application of Scripture to daily life, the objectives of the school are chiefly spiritual: God’s recognition, and development in hearts that most often cannot be measured by earthly standards. While there is an organized program, the Holy Spirit may at any time indicate changes “without notice,” a flexibility that would be lost with accreditation.
