Celebrating our Past, Cultivating our Future 

First Presbyterian Academy (FPA) has worked diligently to provide a Christ centered education where we understand that each student is a child of God and has specific needs.  We join hands with our families as we nurture, guide, and teach our students.  This ministry, that the Lord has set before us, is a true labor of love with an awesome responsibility.

The Armor Fund

In God’s word (Ephesians 6: 10 - 18), we are admonished to put on the whole armor of God.  Each piece of the armor serves a specific purpose as we work in God’s vineyard.  FPA has decided to rename our “Annual Fund/Ignite Fund” as the Armor Fund.

In making a gift to the Armor Fund, you are supporting the academic programs, service-learning opportunities, athletic achievements, faculty, and artistic pursuits of the FPA student body.

Bridge the Gap

Why is there a need for the Armor Fund?  Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of the FPA educational experience.  Financially, there is a gap between tuition and the actual cost of operating the school.  To continue to move forward and provide needed programming, we turn to our entire community for involvement and support in keeping education accessible to all families who are seeking and who value a Christ-centered education

We are thankful for the generosity and donations of our community through the Armor Fund.  YOU too, can help bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of the FPA experience.

Become a part of God’s ministry at First Presbyterian Academy.  Our extended family includes alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, board members, and generous supporters.  Thank YOU for making a difference in the Crusader community.


Armor Fund opportunities are unrestricted and used for operational expenses, maintenance needs, faculty and staff needs, professional development, salaries, athletics, fine arts, and much, much more.  Join the Armor Club today!
