The educational philosophy of Faith Academy is based on a God-centered view of truth and man as presented in the Bible.
The purpose of the school is to raise up Jesus Christ as the standard of excellence in education and the student's identity in Christ as the foundation of his spiritual, mental, physical, and social development.
The authority for such an education comes both from God's command and from the fact that parents are responsible for the total education and training of their children. At the parent's request, Faith Academy becomes a partner in giving this education.
Faith Academy is an evangelical interdenominational school. It is not aligned with or supported by a particular church or denomination.
It is a member of Association of Christian Schools International and is fully accredited with the Texas Alliance of Accredited Private Schools. For the Spiritual and Moral Growth of the students, Faith Academy seeks:
To teach the Bible as God’s inspired Word and to develop attitudes of love and respect toward it.
To teach the basic doctrines of the Bible. (Titus 2:1)
To lead the pupil to an understanding of Christ as Savior and Lord. (Rom. 10:9-10).
To develop a desire to know and obey the will of God as revealed through prayer and searching of the scriptures.
To impart an understanding of each Christian’s place in the Body of Christ, and each student’s involvement in the Great Commission.
To develop the mind of Christ toward godliness and sin and to teach the students how to overcome sin.
To encourage the development of self-discipline and responsibility of the student based on respect and submission to God.
To help the student develop for himself a view of all truth as God's truth by integrating life and studies with the Bible.
Faith Academy began as an idea from a committee in 1993. Classes began for the first time in the fall of 1994 with nine students in Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Grades were added as the years progressed, and in May 2003 Faith Academy had its first group of Seniors. Including that year, 119 students have graduated from Faith Academy.
Faith Academy admits students, faculty, and staff of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available by the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
