Our hybrid video and live teaching curriculum allow students to get the attention they need in order to succeed academically. On-site teachers are able to reinforce concepts and answer questions so that our students are better able to understand the material.

More importantly, our teachers are believers in Christ and able to lead students in Christian lifestyles. First Place Academy’s desire is to raise a generation of young people who are not only educated but have the ambition to serve and obey the Lord Jesus Christ with their lives.

Why FPA?

Few decisions make a more lasting impact on a child than their education. A child’s education will form their worldview, develop their character and values, and establish their work ethic. First Place Academy is here to provide a safe, secure, college-preparatory environment that instills values, helps develop character, and cultivates wisdom manifested through academic excellence.

Our FPA families have chosen to make an eternal investment in the lives of their children by choosing private Christian education. At every grade level, the curriculum and instruction focus on teaching biblical wisdom, values, character, and maximizing student achievement.

We would love the opportunity to show you first-hand our facilities and classroom environment. Our staff desire to be Living Curriculum, setting the example for Christian living.
