Based out of Orlando, Florida, The First Academy, a Christ-centered, college preparatory school, serves over 1,450 students from preschool through high school.
When we were founded in 1986, The First Academy began its academic, fine arts and athletic programs and has continued growing them ever since. We elevate students to their highest levels of achievement, and develop character before career, service before self and participation as a way of life.
We would enjoy the opportunity to show you our 45-acre campus in person. To schedule a tour, attend an Open House, or if we can provide you with more information on why it is great to be a part of The First Academy, please contact our team or register on the Admissions Event form below.
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. 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.
Tuition cost includes most textbooks, technology, and lab use. Non-US residents pay an additional annual fee of $3,500.
