Faith Academy Class of 2019
Our school encompasses a student’s entire academic journey, from K3 to 12th grade, so our students have the unique opportunity to grow with us from the very beginning of their education until the end. The family atmosphere at Faith Academy engages our students academically and enriches them both spiritually and socially.
Faith Academy provides opportunities for all of our students to find their place—whether that be through the arts or technology, on a stage or behind the scenes, on the field or in the engineering workshop, serving others or leading their peers, there is truly something for everyone.
Not only do we offer honors, AP, and dual enrollment classes through the University of Alabama, our graduation rate is 100%. Nearly 70% of our students receive scholarship money, and the average ACT score for our college-preparatory students is a 27.
The ultimate mission of Faith Academy is to help our students identify their purpose by learning who they are in Christ, utilizing their God-given talents, and living out their personal callings so that not only do they become successful after they graduate, they also live fulfilled lives.
We offer more than a dozen different sports for both girls and boys at Faith Academy with competition in some areas beginning in the 3rd grade. Students at Faith Academy learn more than simply the rules of the game. Our winning tradition is based upon the principles of teamwork, respect, initiative and honoring God above all else.
Not only do we emphasize academic excellence, but we also focus on spiritual growth. Our students grow through daily Bible classes, chapel services, mission trips, and opportunities to serve within our own community. Our staff meets each morning to pray for our students and serves alongside them at home and abroad.
