North Florida Christian School (NFCS) is a private school located in Tallahassee, Florida, accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the Florida Association of Christian Colleges, and the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation. It was founded in 1966 by Pastor Rayburn L. Blair and James H. Pound, Jr. Mr. Pound served as principal and school superintendent until his retirement in 1988. The school has classes from K3 to 12th grade, and it serves students from several counties in north Florida and South Georgia. Dr. Randy Ray is now the school president, and Dr. Rick Fielding is the school administrator.

The school is a ministry of North Florida Baptist Church, formerly known as Temple Baptist Church. Pastor Blair founded the church in 1962 and served as pastor for 30 years, retiring in 1992. Dr. Randy Ray became pastor at that time. In 2005, the church was renamed North Florida Baptist Church.[1]
