First Christian School

  • First Christian Academy was founded in 1982 for the purpose of providing a quality Christian education for the people of this community.
  • Pastor Edward Hathcoat and his wife Karen felt the leading of God's hand in starting a school that could once again honor God and place His word as the center of the educational process as it was when our country was founded by our forefathers.
  • Twenty plus years have passed and our purpose has not changed.
  • Teach young people not only how to make a living, but also teach them how to live a Godly life.
  • We at First Christian Academy sincerely pledge to provide your children with the best education that we can humanly produce.
  • We will continue to hold fast to the standard of excellence that was set forth from the beginning of our school.
  • We provide an environment that is safe and conducive to learning.
  • We provide up to date curriculum that will equip the students to meet the challenges that they will face in the 21st century.
