Our Vision

Children are our greatest asset for the future. The investment in their lives today brings innumerable benefits for tomorrow.

Now, more than ever, there is a need for our children to be educated with excellent, academic standard, and sound Christian Principles. The objective of Faith Christian Academy is to prepare students' spirit, soul and body so that they will become qualified to carry out God's plan for their lives. Since its inception in 1982, former graduates have pursued or are pursuing higher education programs in science, politics, medicine, and many other areas, while others are serving by ministering the Gospel.

We highly recommend Faith Christian Academy for your consideration. We are committed to excellence or nothing at all.

-Bishop Keith Butler and Pastor Deborah Butler

School Supply


Pastor MiChelle Butler
Word of Faith International Christian Center

“I was extremely prepared for high school and college for that matter. I remember that it was actually a slight problem for me for a while because I became bored my freshman year of high school considering my educational level was so far beyond my peers. In some classes, I was actually moved up a grade.  Also, I was not shocked at all by the workload and commitment that came along with high school.  Unlike many of my peers, I had learned study skills and time management in elementary and middle school at FCA.  Therefore, while everyone else was trying to figure out how to manage the work, especially in college, I sailed right through.


FCA devotions also helped me to understand the Word and relate to my life at a young age.  I never thought that the Bible was confusing because at four years old, FCA had me applying memory verses to my own little life and my classmates.  Now I teach others how to do that over the pulpit…talk about early preparation.”
