Natalie Thomas Student Campaign

Give Today

Academics to Excel. Faith to Inspire.

Over the past two years, The First Academy has been richly blessed to be able to complete the Gather space and the Royal Kitchen & Eatery. Both of these spaces were made possible by the generous support of our Gospel Patrons, those TFA families and friends who gave sacrificially and invested in the lives of our students.

As I walk through campus daily, I see that these new facilities are areas where our students are building community with one another, praying for each other, and huddling together to study for an important test or quiz. Our future Christian leaders are growing spiritually and academically because our generous donors made it a priority to invest in building something that means so much more than just brick and mortar.

Now that we have finished the two projects mentioned above, our Leadership Team and School Board feel that it is imperative to complete the vision for the heart of our campus. This final phase will include the renovation of the Natalie Thomas Gymnasium into a fully functioning student center. The Natalie Thomas Student Center will provide space for students and members of the TFA community to study, socialize, dine, host chapel and assemblies, attend Fine Arts performances, and engage in campus life. The renovated facility will provide collaborative spaces for students to connect with their teachers and peers as they grow in Christ.

I pray that you join us in Growing the Next Generation of Christian Leaders. The Best is Yet to Come,

Steve D. Whitaker, Ph.D. Head of School
