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. Solid Education
  • At Florida College Academy (FCA), language arts, science, math, social sciences and Bible principles are stressed as the foundation of all education.

Since its establishment in 1958, Florida College Academy has provided the educational foundation for thousands of students. FCA is associated with Florida College, Hillsborough County's second oldest institution of higher learning.
  • FCA enjoys many advantages by being connected with Florida College. College facilities and resources are available to Academy students.
  • Educational events such as guest speakers, storytellers, lecturers and musicians are often scheduled to perform for Academy students.
  • All students enjoy weekly classes in art, music and physical education. Students in grades 6-9 are encouraged to participate in beginning and advanced band programs.
