First Church Christian Academy was established in 1981 as a ministry of Fresno First Church of God.
The mission of First Church Christian Academy is to support parents who seek to obey the Biblical instruction, which gives them the ultimate responsibility for the education of their children.
Because the Christian approach to learning differs significantly from the secular viewpoint, FCCA offers a curriculum rooted in a God-centered view of life.
This view holds that God’s truth is the standard for all truth.
Our curriculum, taught by qualified Christian teachers, allows parents to provide their children with excellent academic instruction consistent with the Christ-centered teaching received at home and at church.
We believe that parents and teachers working together can best educate the child spiritually, physically, emotionally and academically.
