A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Faith Academy is a K-12 International Christian school. We are committed to equipping our students to be Christ-like, life-long learners by providing a dynamic, relevant education. The school has two campuses; one located in the Antipolo/Cainta area and the second campus is situated in Davao.
Over 20 nationalities are represented in our student body. If you want a progressive, well-rounded education for your child, consider Faith Academy. We have an excellent curriculum with small class sizes. Most of our students go on to higher education somewhere around the world.
Faith Academy values a strong commitment to a school improvement process that keeps student learning and our Christian values and ethos at its a core. Supporting these values Faith Academy currently maintains joint accreditation status with the Western Association of School & Colleges (WASC), and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Through the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) program, the school is also one of only four institutions in the Philippines who are accredited with UK based Cambridge International Examinations, as a Cambridge International Centre.
Faith Academy offers American Curriculum, Korean Studies, Advanced Placement Options, and IGCSE classes. Faith also offers many visual and performing arts opportunities to help provide a well rounded education.
First semester runs from early August to Christmas break with a week break at quarter time in October. Second semester begins in January and finishes in late May or early June, again with a week’s break at the end of quarter three in March. Philippine national holidays are typically celebrated with no classes for the day. In Manila, the school day starts at 7:10 and finishes at 2:30, with extra-curricular events running from 2:40-4:25. In Mindanao, the school day starts at 7:30 and finishes by 2:40 with many students remaining at school until 5:00 because of the favorable atmosphere.

FRIENDS FOR A LIFETIME
The purpose of the Faith Academy is to facilitate the work of missionary parents by creating an environment which will prepare their children to eventually return to their home countries and enter colleges and work fields of their choice. Throughout the educational process the school presents a Biblical perspective while striving toward the goal that each student would experience a personal relationship with Christ Jesus and grow in that relationship.
Our community consists of 2 campuses, faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, community members, prayer and financial partners around the world!
