Faith Academy is a K-12 Christian international school that is located on two locations: the Manila Campus, located at Cainta, Rizal, and the Davao Campus, located at Davao City.

History[edit]

Founded by a group of missionary parents, Faith Academy was established in 1956. Faith Academy's first campus was once located in a rented house at V. Mapa Street in Manila. A small mission school in Davao later joined Faith Academy and became known as Faith Academy Davao. In 2008, the Davao branch combined with a highschool called MICA (Mindanao International Christian Academy) and changed its name to Faith Academy Mindanao. In 1962, Faith Academy moved into its current property which is located on the suburb of Metro Manila, Cainta, Rizal in Rizal province. In 1970, Typhoon Yoling caused significant damage, but the school was reconstructed. In recent years, several additions have been made to the Manila campus, most notably the Dick and Helen Cadd Fine Arts Center. Other additions are the Middle School building, reconstruction and additions to the aquatic facility, and various student council gifts such as the vanguard trophy case. [1]

Composition[edit]

The school provides Christian K-12 education, mainly to children of missionaries.

Location[edit]

The Manila campus is now located at Cainta, Rizal, a suburb of Metro Manila, and the Davao Campus is located at Davao City.
