First Christian Academy started in 1996 as Education Station, which was a year round preschool for 2 -4 year olds and kindergarten. As Education Station grew to second grade, it was determined that there should be a distinction between the preschool and the school. The preschool continued to operate under Education Station and the elementary school was renamed First Christian Academy. Education Station began as a ministry of First Christian Church of Tarpon Springs, which is now named Generations Christian Church and located in Trinity. The school prospered and grew to 215 students in preschool through grade 8.
In 2012, the school had the blessing of relocating to First Baptist Church in New Port Richey. The school and the preschool now operate together as First Christian Academy and Learning Center.
The lovely First Baptist Church campus on Trouble Creek Road is the ideal location for a school. The buildings and grounds are beautiful, secure and excellently maintained. First Christian Academy and Learning Center is committed to providing our students with a solid academic foundation and sound spiritual training. We also provide enrichment classes in art, music, library, PE, computer, and Spanish each week.
In 2016, Ms. Susan Kunsman became the new Administrator of the school. She has served as a teacher in Christian schools for 16 years and as an Administrator in a Christian School in Kentucky for 9 years. From 2013 until 2016, Ms. Kunsman served as an educational consultant for the International Mission Board and lived in Lima, Peru.
The Director of the Preschool Learning Center is Mrs. Tifanee Wright. She has served as Director since December of 2009 and works to maintain a safe, organized and fun learning environment for our youngest students (infant through VPK).
