Faith Academy has maintained a long relationship with the Western Association of School & Colleges (WASC), since our first accreditation dating back to 1972. The school supports the WASC Accreditation Protocols that keep the improvement of student learning as a core, intentional focus of a school. Faith Academy, as a Christian school, is also a member of Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Christian values and ethos remain key to every aspect of student learning and school operation. The School Board, Administration and wider community are, therefore, committed to moving forward with joint WASC/ASCI Accreditation by following the Accreditation by School Progress (ASP) Protocol.
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.

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.
