Located on beautiful Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach Christian Academy (FBCA) welcomes students to a dynamic learning environment that inspires students to be our future achievers and leaders.

From the moment you walk on our campus, you can feel the love that teachers have for each student.  Teaching at FBCA is a calling that is student centered and founded in faith. Each child’s educational journey is strongly connected to highly qualified and dedicated teachers who collaborate with parents for spiritual growth and academic success. Our teaching/learning model is unique.

  • Class sizes are intentionally small not exceeding 12 students to a classroom teacher.
  • The majority of our teachers hold advanced degrees.
  • Teachers embrace each child’s potential recognizing the importance and value of parent expectations.

FBCA uses a fully integrated, project-based learning platform with strong emphasis on reading, writing, mathematics, science and history. A full enrichment program, ranging from Steam, Stem, Gardening, Computer Literacy to the Arts, Music, and Bible Studies to Physical Fitness and Nutrition, create a well-rounded student.

High Academic Standards are validated annually by the outstanding results of our students on the Terra Nova 3, a nationally recognized, norm-reformed benchmark test. Testing and assessment are important, but the ability of students to achieve and succeed are our higher goals.

FBCA is a committed private Christian school, with love and dedication, to creating the whole student. The FBCA Knight is a student who is a joyful learner. The world is our classroom and mission field. Students’ families and staff perform faithful ministry locally and globally. We prepare future Christian adults to have a head and heart for Christ in stewardship as they engage new lifelong opportunities to serve.

Our Teachers & Staff


Dedicated, highly creative, Christ-centered and committed to the success of each child are just a few of the words that describe our high-achieving teachers and staff.
