Central Florida Christian Academy

The purpose of Central Florida Christian Academy as a ministry of First Baptist Church of Central Florida, is to glorify God by partnering with families to educate, inspire, and equip every student to know and serve Jesus Christ among all nations by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Central Florida Christian Academy's purpose and philosophy are based upon a Christian world view holding that God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, the ultimate reality, and the source and essence of all goodness and truth.
God has revealed Himself through nature, circumstances of human life and history, and more explicitly through His Son, Jesus Christ, as revealed in Holy Scripture, the Bible.
The highest good is realized in the exercise of His will and, on the part of man, in the conformity to that will.
The ultimate objective of Christian education must be to help young people realize their full potential as human beings in God's perfect will for their lives.
Each student must be helped to become the "perfect", that is, whole, complete, or fully equipped person in Christ.

The end of next month will mark the completion of our 3rd year at CFCA ...My son will be returning for a 4th school year (with intentions to stay through 12th grade) !! The teachers and staff are all professional, and friendly and genuinely seem to love my son !! Their focus and goal are clear to me - They want each child to grow and excel academically, morally, and in their faith. In a lot of ways, this (affordable)Christian Private school has been the answer to our prayers. I highly recommend CFCA to all parents !!

I love CFCA. It has changed our lives. At the time I had no clue where God was leading me, but 13 years later, I know exactly this is the best place to raise my kids. The teachers are incredibly involved, communication is outstanding and my kids have grown so much in their spiritual lives. I can't believe it is all coming to an end next year. I am so grateful to all of the teachers and administration.

Our children have been attending CFCA for 11 years and we couldn't be happier! CFCA teachers are highly qualified, extremely encouraging, and genuinely care about our kids. Our children appreciate the opportunities to play sports, be involved in student government, as well as take AP classes to help prepare them for college. CFCA is a Spirit filled school and we love it!

Since 1973 this school has seen it's share of changes. Founded on the aspects of spiritual integrity and academic excellence - CFCA is now educating, inspiring and equipping students and the best part is they truly partner with families to do so. If you are looking for a school that communicates well with it's students and families - it's CFCA. It is NOT hard to be involved here. It's a second family. A home away from home for my kids.
