  • Faith Academy History

    Faith Academy was founded in 1987 by Jacquelyn Griggs to serve high school students. In her extensive years of experience as an educator, Mrs. Griggs recognized the need for education opportunities outside of the traditional school setting. Her desire is for students to not only succeed academically but also spiritually.
  • Faith Academy Provides

    Faith Academy provides students with a positive academic environment and flexible schedules to accommodate extracurricular interests. At Faith Academy, traditional school challenges no longer prevent students from being successful. Faith Academy exists to help students see success in high school allowing them to continue into post secondary education. The mission continues, as Mrs. Griggs desired in 1987, to guide students into obtaining a high school diploma through quality education using non-traditional instruction.

    Faith Academy is fully accredited by AdvancEd and GAC. Faith Academy provides students with the opportunity to work independently to earn a high school diploma. Students are able to receive assignments weekly and complete course work outside the class room.

    Students interact with faculty and staff face to face while maintaining scheduling flexibility. Faith Academy faculty members are available at each campus to assist students in areas where additional help may be needed. Faculty members are qualified and approved for their area of instruction.

    Faith Academy’s students are widely diverse from all walks of life; Faith Academy is able to provide each one with an educational option that meets his or her needs.
