Thank you for your interest in The First Academy.

Few decisions have the lasting impact on your child as that of school choice. It is during their school days that life-long friendships will be made, spiritual formation will take place, and values will be instilled. As a private school in Orlando, Florida, The First Academy is here to partner with you in making those days the very best that they can be. The First Academy exists today because parents like you found it important to educate their children in a safe, secure, college-preparatory environment that instills values, helps develop character, and cultivates wisdom manifested through academic excellence.

Our families made an eternal investment in their children by choosing Christian education. At all grade levels, the curriculum and classroom instruction is focused on maximizing individual student achievement and developing strength of character. Your child will benefit from state-of-the-art technology-enhanced learning, a world-class athletic facility, modern classrooms and labs, and comprehensive sports, fine arts, and service programs. The First Academy’s mission is to partner with you in preparing children to be Christian leaders who choose character before career, wisdom beyond scholarship, service before self, and participation as a way of life.

We hope that you will find the information on this site to be helpful. We would enjoy the opportunity to show you our impressive campus in person.
