Port Charlotte Community Christian School is relaunched as Family Christian Academy
Local Christian School – formerly CCS Mustangs – begins 2022/23 school year as FCA Mustangs
PORT CHARLOTTE, FLORIDA, CHARLOTTE, June 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Port Charlotte, Florida — Founded in 1983, the private Christian school associated with Family Church Port Charlotte, formerly First Baptist Church Port Charlotte, enters the new year school with a new identity.
Community Christian School becomes Family Christian Academy and will continue to provide an excellent education and campus experience for K-12 students.
Charlotte County’s First Christian School
Family Church Port Charlotte is one of the most established congregations in Port Charlotte and has been operating since 1961. The school was founded from the church in 1983 as part of a shared vision to provide a biblically integrated academic education to Christian families in the community.
FCA was the first Christian school in Charlotte County, originally named First Baptist Community Christian School, and served students from kindergarten through eighth grade. In 1995, the school started a secondary education program.
The school’s goal over these four decades of operation has been simple:
“FCA is committed to providing its students with an educational program that is academically rigorous, culturally relevant, and spiritually sound.”
Port Charlotte Family Church
Jim McCarty, D.Ed. Ministry, is the senior pastor of the church, which has a dozen full-time staff and is located on the same campus as the school. While the entities are run separately, the church’s pastoral staff are regularly involved in school chapels, ceremonies, and supporting the spiritual culture of the academy.
The staff and congregants are proud of the continued growth the school has experienced over the past five years. Pastor Jim explains, “We are delighted to partner with Christian parents in the academic and spiritual education of their children. We intend to make this coming year the best of all, to the glory of God. »
New name: same mission
The school associated with Family Church Port Charlotte has been a haven for Christian families who want to raise their children with a Christian worldview. At a time when spiritual awareness, moral strength, and biblical literacy are steadily diminishing, many believing parents rely on a Christian education to ensure their children get a healthy start in life.
In addition to a foundation of biblical understanding, Family Christian Academy has a record of success in preparing students for academic and personal achievement. Students represent a graduation rate that exceeds the public school system and enrollment rates above the college average.
The school’s principal, Mark Winningham, D.Ed., explains the vision this way: “FCA strives to provide academic excellence. Our desire is to partner with parents to support the academic and spiritual growth of their children.
FCA is located at 20035 Quesada Avenue in Port Charlotte and is now open for enrollment for the 2022/23 school year.
