History of FCA
Having recognized that there are great pressures that children in government schools bear and that they tend to erode certain spiritual values, Pastor David Auckland, founder of Faith Baptist Church, felt compelled to start a Christian school. It appeared obvious to him that God's timing for such a venture was in 1973.
Over 50 students were enrolled in kindergarten to fourth grade that first year. The school expanded to include nursery care and grades 5-9 in 1974, and well over one hundred students were matriculated that year. In 1975, the school expanded through the high school grades and had a total enrollment of 270 students. Early in 1977, a nursery school was added so that academic skills would be taught from age two. The present student enrollment from nursery school through twelfth grade is approximately three hundred.
Our school curriculum continues to expand. We offer Calculus and Trigonometry, Anatomy and Forensics, Honors English (10th - 12th grade), and a variety of other courses ranging from Accounting to Robotics. The school facilities have also grown as Faith Baptist Church has grown. We continue to update our facilities to provide an environment conducive to learning.
Our graduates now number over six hundred. They are literally dispersed around the entire world. We thank the Lord for all of our students who are serving Him.
