AboutFaith 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.”

To place an order, call the school at 248-4872 or see a Faith Christian Academy student. You will also receive information on how to pick up your pizza on Saturday, February 2nd between 9:30 and 1:30.
