What makes TFA distinctively different than all the rest? Is it our beautiful campus, the attractive facilities, the flourishing Fine Arts or championship Athletic programs? Those items are wonderful, but it’s not what makes us special.

Over the course of the last few months, I spent time asking members of our faculty and staff just what sets The First Academy apart from other schools. What I heard from faculty and staff is that we are unique because we are educating for eternity and strive toward doing all we do with excellence. Ours is a high calling and a noble mission as we partner with families to raise the next generation of Christian leaders.

I’ve captured some of the responses from our faculty and staff in this powerful video. It’s not a sixty-second commercial or a fast-paced hype reel. What you’ll find is heartfelt and sincere expressions from teachers who love your children and believe the best about them.

Thank you for the incredible honor of partnering with you in preparing your children for this life and the life to come. I want you to know that we will unapologetically continue to remain focused on Christ and pour into the lives of your children on a daily basis.
