Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” Matthew 19:14

Faith Community Academy is a ministry of Berea Baptist Church. It is our opportunity to minister to the preschool and Kindergarten needs of our community, sharing God’s love with our students and their families as well as preparing them for the future.

We believe that learning should be fun, engaging, and inter-active. It should lay the groundwork for a lifetime of learning. Playing is a very important way children learn about their environment and learn social skills necessary throughout life.

Faith Community Academy operates as a religiously exempt preschool. We adhere to the guidelines provided by the Virginia Department of Education for religiously exempt facilities.

Our Mission:

Faith Community Academy provides a caring environment, geared to touch each child with God’s love. Our teachers minister to the emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth of the children in our community. We strive to help children form habits of respect, courtesy, self-confidence, responsibility, cooperation, and independence as life long learners.

Parents are saying…….

“FCA is a wonderful program that allows for kids to learn and play in smaller group/classroom settings and I know that safety and fun is always a priority. I always know my child is well cared for at FCA.”

“FCA welcomed us on short notice and have been so friendly and helpful to my girls. The teachers are very caring and directly communicate with us if there is a concern. It has been a wonderful experience, Thank you FCA.”

“Both of my children have loved their experience at FCA! They look forward to going to school each day and adore their teachers. I love that they are not only exposed to age appropriate academic skills, but also have a structured play time and activities such as music, chapel, and library. I also love hearing about the Bible stories my kids learn at school! FCA’s small size makes it feel like a close knit family. All of the staff know each and every student. I am so thankful for our experience at Faith Community Academy and know that my kids are prepared for social and academic success in Kindergarten!”

“I was worried my daughter would be behind because of not being able to attend in person school because of Covid. All of my concerns flew out the door since after only a few months in the kindergarten program at Faith Community Academy! She has learned so much this school year and had so much fun in the process! This has been a blessing for her and our family. Thank you all for creating a warm and loving environment for our children to grow and learn in.”

“Our son has had the best year at FCA. We are so lucky to have their support and love in his education journey.”

“We can’t say enough good things about every aspect of our experience with you all. We have had such a wonderful experience!”

“My daughter has been made to feel loved and welcomed since her very first day. What I thought was going to be a difficult transition for her came very naturally thanks to Mrs. Hynson, Mrs. Boatwright and the other teachers here.”
