Who We Are

Welcome to Fairhaven Christian Academy.  FCA began in 1995 with a group of close friends desiring to homeschool their children in God-friendly learning environments and to support and encourage each other along the way.  In 2005, FCA incorporated as an official 501c3 non-profit private school. 

As Fairhaven continued to grow in numbers and services, the mission remained the same.  Fairhaven continues to assist and support homeschooling families in their endeavors to educate their children.  

One of the most important aspects of Fairhaven is that its foundation is a co-op.  The school has services, special events, and classes because the moms and dads of the school volunteer their time and abilities--this includes the current leadership team and Board of Directors.  Without everyone helping, Fairhaven would not exist.

Our Educational Philosophy

We believe we are helping to strengthen the future through the schooling of our children at home. God placed the authority and responsibility for the training and educating of children in the hands of the parents. The home is the basic center of learning; all other arenas should be but an extension of the home and parent. True knowledge (wisdom) comes from God through His word. With educating our children at home, we are making sure they are receiving the firm foundation on which to stand in the future. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9, Proverbs 22:6, Psalm 111:10, Psalm 1:1-2, Luke 6:40, Colossians 2:8, 2 Timothy 2:14-26)

Statement of Christian Beliefs


The following is a brief summary of some foundational Christian beliefs that
we hold as essential elements of the Christian faith. Though certainly not
an exhaustive list, we have chosen 7 key areas that we believe reflect our
commitment to maintaining a Christian school. Why do we ask our
members to affirm such a “doctrinal statement?”

Firstly, the mutual support and encouragement that we offer to one
another is based on the concept of “Christian School.” Such relationships
can only occur between those who profess a faith in Jesus as their Lord
and Savior.

Secondly, many people who inquire about our school are curious about
what we mean when we say we are a “Christian School.” Having a
statement of Christian beliefs helps them to determine if they align with
FCA guidelines, as well as to discern with what types of families they will
share their homeschooling experience.

Thirdly, though all of our members are Christian, we recognize that we
come from various traditions, backgrounds and expressions of the historic
Christian faith. Many of our churches may have doctrinal statements or
standards that differ in certain aspects. We believe that one of our
strengths as a school is to enable believers from these various traditions to
cultivate Christian love and unity through homeschooling with others. Thus,
a common statement of belief helps us bridge the gap with other Christians.


1. BIBLE: We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God, the final
authority of faith and life, without error in its original writing both in
doctrine and historical details, and that all true knowledge is consistent
with its revelation. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

2. GOD: We believe that there is one self-existent God, who has always
been and will always be, who is manifest in three persons, Father, Son
and Holy Spirit; that knowing him truly is the foundation of all knowledge,
wisdom and understanding. (John 1:1-4, John 14:17, Matthew 28:19,
Colossians 1:16-19)

3. JESUS CHRIST: We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God
manifest in the flesh, born of a virgin. He is the Savior of mankind through
His death on the cross. He rose from the dead, ascended to God, and will
return again as Judge of the living and the dead. (Hebrews 1, 1 Peter
2:24, Acts 5:30, Acts 1:10)


4. MAN & SIN: We believe that God created mankind in His image for
relationship with Himself and to govern the earth. All mankind are
sinners, inherently from Adam and individually (by choice) and are
therefore in need of forgiveness and salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9,
Romans 5:8-12, Romans 5:19, Romans 3:23)

5. MARRIAGE & SEXUALITY: We believe that God has established
marriage as an exclusive relationship between one man and one woman
and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship,
whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore
sin. (Genesis 2:24-25; Romans 1:18-31; I Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20) We
believe that God created the human race male and female and that all
conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one’s birth gender is
immoral and therefore sin. (Genesis 1:26-27; Deuteronomy 22:5)


6. BODY OF CHRIST: We believe that while church attendance isn’t
required for salvation, it is an important part of Christian family life. Being
involved in the body of Christ through corporate prayer and worship, bible
study, caring and serving, and breaking bread together is reflective of a
life pursuing Christ, for both adults and children. As a school, our goal is
to encourage educating children to see God in all subjects, which reflect
the wisdom, grace and glory of God and lead to a deeper relationship with
Him. Being part of a church community is generally evidence of a life
being lived with that purpose. (Hebrews 10:24-25, Matthew 28:19-20,
Romans 12:4-5)

7. SALVATION: We believe Salvation is a gift received by faith alone in
Christ alone and expressed in the individual’s repentance, recognition of
the death of Christ as full payment for sin, and acceptance of the risen
Christ as Savior, Lord and God. (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9)
