Our History

FCA was established in 1983 by the First Baptist Church (now Family Church) of Port Charlotte, Florida. The church’s vision was to provide a Biblically integrated academic school for the children of Christian families in the area. Originally named First Baptist Community Christian School, it was Charlotte County’s first Christian school and served students in Kindergarten through eighth grade. 

In 1995, CCS added high school classes to meet the needs of families that desired a complete secondary education experience. The first graduating class was in 1999. 

In 2022 the school became known as Family Christian Academy.

FCA is dedicated to providing its students with an educational program that is academically rigorous, culturally relevant and spiritually robust. 

Today, FCA’s students and parents benefit from the vision, faith and experience that comes from educating our community’s young people for nearly four decades.
