Quality Christian Education

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 over 270 students in Pre-K3 through 12th grade.

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—First Baptist Church of Suffolk, Open Door Church, Southside Baptist Church, and Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church.
