Giving Opportunities

In August of 1987, The First Academy committed to “preparing children for life as Christian leaders.” Through the faithfulness of God and the generosity of his people, The First Academy began impacting thousands of students’ lives. Since then, countless parents, grandparents and alumni have given generously, and today we ask that you, too, help make this possible.
