At Faith Christian Academy, we are more than just a school – we are a family nurturing a tradition of excellence for over 55 years. FCA partners with families in Goldsboro, NC, to provide a Christ-centered education for students from preschool through graduation. Our dedicated faculty and strong academic program are just the beginning. Our passion is to help each student discover and pursue God’s will for their life.

Our history

Faith Christian Academy was founded in January of 1967 under the leadership of Reverend Frank Davenport and the members of Faith Free Will Baptist Church. They saw the need for a Christian school to assist parents in the training and educating of their children in a goldy environment. Over the course of many years, FCA has undergone multiple building projects and renovations. The academy now resides on twenty-five acres of land along with Faith Church. It is because of parents like you, who understand the importance of a Christian education, that Faith Christian Academy is able to continue serving the Goldsboro, NC and surround areas.

our purpose

Faith Christian Academy is designed to assist Christian parents in the training of their child in a Christ-centered philosophy of life as commanded in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Our desire is to graduate young men and women who are academically sound, patriotic, community minded, socially refined, and Biblically knowledgeable so that they will live their lives based on Biblical principles. 

our philosophy

Faith Christian Academy believes Christian education is a mandate from God as stated in Matthew 28:18-20, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Because of Scripture verses like Proverbs 19:27; Deuteronomy 6:6-9; and Colossians 2:8, we must provide an atmosphere more conductive to the precepts of the Bible and be in harmony with parental admonition. We support parents that teach their children morals, such as truthfulness, purity, honesty, patriotism, faithfulness, and a high regard for standards. Every subject is taught in light of Biblical truth. We accept God’s Word as the final authority. Our academy is a ministry and a part of Faith Church. We exist because of our church, and we operate in harmony with our other church ministries as well as a traditional philosophy of education.

our administration

Faith Christian Academy’s chief administrator is the Pastor of Faith Church. He is considered to be the shepherd of the academy and the one ultimately responsible for the direction and guidance of FCA. The School Board is compromised of Faith Church’s Deacon Board. The Deacons are nominated by the church body and serve with the Pastor as advisors of the school. The School Administrator is put in place by the Pastor and School Board and is commissioned to operate the school. The Administrator oversees the day-to-day affairs and operation of the school ministry.
