The First Academy

The First Academy is a Christ-centered, college preparatory school whose mission is to prepare children for life as Christian leaders who choose character before career, wisdom beyond scholarship, service before self, and participation as a way of life.

Teachers at The First Academy are called Living Curriculum Influencers. They are 1) Christ Followers, 2) Prayer Warriors, 3) Servant Leaders, 4) Relationship Builders, 5) Faithful Encouragers, 6) Grateful Communicators, and 7) Engaging Instructors. Though they come in all different shapes and sizes, have varied backgrounds and experiences, and possess unique personality types, I believe these seven characteristics set them apart from all other teachers in Central Florida. We are blessed to have these remarkable men and women leading our students.

Besides our exemplary teachers, The First Academy is also blessed with other qualities necessary to be a great school:

  • A modern, secure campus with state-of-the-art infrastructure supporting the latest in learning environment technology
  • An award-winning academic curriculum, including our Lower School being named to the prestigious list of Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education
  • A world-class athletic facility (Payne Stewart Athletic Complex) that is home to numerous state championships
  • A vibrant, award-winning fine arts program
  • A commitment to character development and service to others
