Meet Our Staff

"Teacher, we know that you are true and teach the way of God truthfully." - Matthew 22:16

The teaching faculty of FCA are committed disciples of Jesus Christ, called and gifted as teachers. Each has affirmed their own confession of faith in Jesus and have agreed with the Statement of Faith of First Christian Academy. In addition to these most important credentials, all of our Elementary, Middle, and High School teachers have Bachelors Degrees and are fully certified through ACSI and/or the state of Florida. Our Preschool faculty maintain the required state coursework and certifications.
