School Notes

  • Florida College Academy provides a learning environment where biblical principles are taught and exemplified. From the beginning, Florida College's founders wanted students to receive an education which included a knowledge of God and His creation. Daily Bible classes and Chapel provide opportunities to focus on Christian attitudes and concepts. Students at FCA are instructed in four principles of respect:
  • Respect for yourself
  • Respect for others
  • Respect for property
  • Respect for authority
  • All faculty members embrace the highest Christian values and uphold the philosophy and purposes of Florida College Academy.
  • With a student-teacher ratio of 11 to 1, students learn in a safe, caring environment.
  • Athletics are important in both physical and social development. Grades 5-9 are encouraged to participate in the extracurricular sports programs. Soccer, basketball, softball and baseball are offered for both boys and girls.
  • Field trips, projects, banquets and other programs allow students to interact in a variety of social situations.
  • We believe a school should provide a warm, nurturing environment where respect for others is demonstrated, and where safety is assured. When we speak of the "FCA family", we are emphasizing the close, personal relationships that exist between students, teachers, parents, and administrators. Located in the city of Temple Terrace, one of the safest neighborhoods in Hillsborough County, FCA strives to provide an environment free of weapons, alcohol, drugs, profanity and hostility.
  • Solid education, spiritual development, social interaction, and safety-compelling reasons to choose Florida College Academy for your child's education. We invite you to come visit our school and observe the warm, caring environment provided for our students. We hope you will become part of the FCA family soon. Your children deserve the best.

School Reviews

We are so glad that we found this school. My oldest son completed Pre-K through 8th grade at FCA and was fully prepared socially and academically for high school. My youngest still attends and has been there since Pre-K. We love that school continues to grow improve. The highly qualified teaching staff are encouraging and professional. Each student is encouraged to reach his/her potential. Respect and responsibility are fostered, encouraged and integrated daily. Students are disciplined quietly and not publically. Bullying is not tolerated. This school is a true gem in our community.
