About

Faith Christian Academy is Whitley County’s only interdenominational Christian school, providing excellence in education for children since 1991. Located at State Road 205 and US 30 in Columbia City, Indiana, Faith Christian Academy offers advanced, yet individualized curriculum for preschoolers through eighth grade. God in the classroom, dedicated educators, involved parents, smaller class sizes and specialized attention for each child mean a learning experience unsurpassed in Whitley County.

  • Christian school educators emphasize the worth of every child.
  • Christian school educators openly share the love of Christ with students. They point students toward the Savior of the world, not away from Him.
  • The opposite of Christ-centered education is man-centered education or humanism, declaring man instead of God as the authority for truth.
  • Christian schools attempt to inspire loyalty to the church.
  • Christian school educators attempt to inspire students to love their country and to have respect for civil government.
  • Christian school education equips students with basic academic skills with which to effectively apply themselves to live lives that are useful and productive.
  • Christian school educators are themselves important role models for students. Someone has said, “Ninety percent of what students ultimately retain from their education is what they learn from watching the lives of their teachers.”

Back to School Night/Open House

It's that time again. Time to start thinking about getting back to the business of school. Our FCA Open House/Back to School Night is set for Monday, August 19th. Open House will run from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. and our Back to School Orientation program will be from 6:30 - 7:00 p.m. We hope to see everyone that night as several very important things will occur. This is a great opportunity to drop off school supplies, meet and/or reacquaint yourself with your student's teacher and a chance to listen to me and Pastor Larry explain important changes and improvements for the coming school year. Additionally, we will ask all parents to update their student information pages. This year, however, we will not ask you to fill out a new page. Instead we are asking parents to change any information that is no longer correct on last year's student data page. If everything is still correct you need only sign the verification page. While some of you are old hands at the ways of FCA we still encourage you to come that evening. We look forward to seeing everyone that evening and seeing bright shining faces by 8:00 the following morning. If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of us at the school (244-4872).
