   Faith Academy, founded in 1994, is to be a place of encouragement and excellence in academic and character training where The Light of the World - Jesus Christ - lives in and enlightens those who teach and learn. 
   Faith Academy believes that a quality education is the result of teachers that are Christian in practice and philosophy and a curriculum that integrates God's truth into all courses and adequately prepares the student for future educational endeavors.
   It is Faith Academy's desire to have a curriculum that challenges the student, stimulates his or her curiosity, promotes creativity, teaches the discipline of study habits, develops critical thinking, and encourages individual responsibility.  
   Faith Academy is fully accredited with the Texas Alliance of Accredited Private Schools. Curriculum used at Faith Academy includes publications by ABeka, Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), Bob Jones Press, Positive Action, and other administrative approved supplements.


   On Mondays we gather as a student body to orient our week around the greatness of Jesus. 

   An exciting and participatory way to do this is through music!  Students that have a desire to lead others in worship through honing a musical craft (vocals, drums, guitar, piano, etc) are encouraged to join our rotation!

Vocals: Emily Maddox, Addie Kuespert, Eric Carlin, Julia McKinney, Emily McKinney

Producer/Manager/All Things Musically Awesome: Jake Mayfield

   No matter what the sport is our Knights and Lady Knights are prepared to play for Christ and the Faith Academy Community on and off the field.

  We strive to keep our athletes mentally, physically and emotionally ready to go to battle against the competition with Biblical-driven effort and sportsmanship. Our championship culture demands the best from all of our athletes. 

   FA offers the boys the opportunity to play football, basketball, baseball, track, cross country, golf, swim and tennis. We offer volleyball, basketball, cross country, track, softball, golf, swim and tennis for our Lady Knights.

   More information about our sports programs, policies and fees are under the Athletics tab.

    The Faith Academy Bellville Early Education Center (EEC) is now open and we are excited at the 50 plus students we have enrolled from 18 months to 5-year-old. While a grand opening date has not been set, we are serving students and instilling Christ in the hearts of our Little Knights.

   We ask for continued prayers and support as we expand our school. Nothing is impossible with Christ and we always believe He has great things in store for our school and community.
