History of the Church and School
Family of Christ Christian School was founded in 1999 as a new mission in the New Tampa area. The church was blessed with the purchase of a beautiful 31-acre wooded campus located in Tampa Palms.
In November of 1999, when the church moved into the first building, the program included a preschool and Kindergarten program. The mission of the church was to add a grade each school year, and the school now includes Kindergarten through Eighth grade.
The hours of operation are as follows:
- Kindergarten - 5th: 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (Elementary)
- 6th - 8th: 8:10 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (Middle)
Philosophy and Objectives
Family of Christ Christian School's philosophy is to foster a Christ-centered educational environment in which children are provided the highest quality of Christian education. The curriculum provides a solid emphasis on academic skills, balanced with Christian teaching of Biblical truths, and how they apply to everyday living. Academic and enrichment programs are planned for the child's spiritual, mental, social, emotional, and physical growth. The entire program offers many opportunities for the child to observe the miracle of God's wonderful world.
