Our History

Suffolk Christian Academy, formerly known as First Baptist Christian School, was established in 1988 when First Baptist Church of Suffolk expanded its Weekday School ministry to include first through third grades. By 2005, the school served through 8th grade. In 2010, the school celebrated the first graduating class in the school’s history. Now the school educates students in Pre-K3 through 12th grade. In 2013, the preschool and extended care program obtained state licensure as a Child Day Center.

In December of 2012 the school incorporated to become an independent school. The school was renamed Suffolk Christian Academy. The school incorporation was done in partnership with four area churches—Southside Baptist Church, Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church, Open Door Church, and First Baptist Church of Suffolk.
