      • Implementing teaching methods supported by contemporary educational research

      • Training students to be creative and critical thinkers, self-directed learners, proficient collaborators, skillful communicators and faithful stewards

      We are dedicated to seeing the Gospel permeate everything we do, in and out of the classroom.

      • Pursuing a rich integration of faith and learning

      • Training students to think biblically about every aspect of life

      • Modeling a life of faith and commitment to follow Christ in all that he commands

    4. Multicultural Community
      We are a vibrant, multicultural community bound together by Christian love.

      • Cultivating rich, caring relationships

      • Honoring and respecting people of all cultural backgrounds

      • Meeting the unique needs of Third Culture Kids


  • We believe that the Bible is inspired and inerrant, that all 66 books of the Old and New Testament are God’s complete written revelation to mankind, the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe in one triune God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the same in substance and equal in power and glory.
  • We believe in the complete humanity and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and future personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells and empowers all believers and enables them to live a godly life.
  • We believe that through Adam’s sin all have inherited a sinful nature and therefore all choose to sin. All are thus sinners and deserving of death.
  • We believe that salvation of lost and sinful man is only by the grace of God through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, accomplished through regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that our sins block our fellowship with God. As we confess those sins, God forgives us and our fellowship is restored.
  • We believe in the resurrection of the body, the judgment of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.
  • We believe that saving faith in Jesus Christ unites all Christians as members of the body of Christ. Such a position brings both privileges and responsibilities before God and toward one another in the Christian life.

Faith Academy is a private school that offers a quality education, integrated with a Christian worldview. English language instruction is central to the implementation of the curriculum which is designed for students whose first language is English. However, this does not exclude children whose first language is not English. The concepts in the school’s Statement of Faith serve as the foundation and theological dimension for our educational philosophy.

We believe that each student, being created in the image of God, is of supreme worth.  We believe that the dignity and worth of the individual should be respected. We believe that students vary as to inherent and acquired capabilities and that these differences must be taken into consideration in the educational process.

The Objectives of the Philosophy are:

  1. To encourage each student to put their trust in Christ, and to grow toward fullness and maturity in Him as stated in the Scriptures.
  2. To provide a working, learning, and growth environment based on mutual respect and trust for one another.
  3. To provide opportunities for citizenship training and character development for effective participation in the family and society.
  4. To include those experiences and activities for each student which will lead to the enrichment of their life, through their spiritual, moral, social, intellectual, physical, and aesthetic development.
  5. To assist students in understanding the changing conditions in the world from a Christian viewpoint, and to prepare them to think through their obligations as Christians in new situations.
  6. To provide students with opportunities for direct involvement in the life and ministry of the body of Christ.
