Faith Christian Academy

We began in 1988 as a group of parents who, just like you, were concerned about what our children were being taught in the public schools. Since then, the prevailing secular philosophy found in most core curriculum has only gotten worse. In contrast, we believe that God`s word, His principles, and His standards for living should be foundational to a child`s education. Today, thirty three years later, Faith Christian Academy offers classes for Preschool through 12th grade with full accreditation. 100% of our teaching staff is ACSI certified and 50% have Master's Degrees.
If you're tired of feeling lost and powerless in the public school system, we're here to empower you as a parent again.
Our faith-based curriculum and strong values will be in line with what you're already teaching at home, and our online Parent Portal will give you total access to the curriculum our teachers are using, so you're never left in the dark again.
