“I am very blessed to have attended such a great school for so many years. Without a doubt, Faith Academy prepared me for future academic success upon graduation, but more importantly, life lessons and words of wisdom learned there continue to guide me and ring true years later. I hold dear to the friendships made with classmates, teammates, faculty, and staff. Faith Academy always has been, and always will be HOME.”

“I will always hold Faith Academy dear to my heart and am thankful for the relationships I had with my coaches and teachers who were like parents to me. They prayed for me, encouraged me, mentored me, and gave biblical guidance that molded me into the person I am today. Faith helped to lay the foundation for us to have a strong marriage and raise our family with Christ as the center.”
