The Academy, home of the Eagles (formerly the Lions), was established in 1984 as Faith Outreach Christian School. Classes for a few students, ranging from K-4 through grade 5, were held in the church. During that year, construction was underway to erect the school's official building. In August of 1985, the school occupied its new building. However, construction was not fully completed until August of 1986 when the school expanded through grade 12. The first graduation was in 1987.
