Thankfully, the Opportunity Scholarship helps families pay tuition and fees for schools like Faith Christian Academy, a private school in Goldsboro, NC. For the 2024-2025 school year, the Opportunity Scholarship pays up to $7,468 for families that qualify. Figuring out whether or not your family qualifies for the scholarship can be a complicated process. We’re here to simplify that for you!

  • Live in North Carolina
  • Have not graduated from high school

At Faith Christian Academy, we want as many children as possible to receive a high-quality education that is grounded in a biblical worldview. That is why we work hard to provide other scholarship funds to families with multiple children enrolled at FCA who do not qualify for the Opportunity Scholarship.
