FAITH INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY
Davao City, Philippines
Faith International Academy exists primarily to support families in Christian ministry by providing a quality, international, Christian education.
In March 1956, missionary parents met in Manila to found a school. After praying and working with a small mission school, and with the help of several mothers, Faith Academy Manila opened in July 1957. In the early 80’s a United Christian Academy in Davao asked Faith Academy to facilitate a branch in Davao. Faith Academy Davao opened, and the present campus was dedicated in 1987. In 2008, Faith Academy in Davao consolidated with Mindanao International Christian Academy to become Faith Academy Mindanao. In 2013, it was decided that the school was established enough to become legally independent. In 2014, recognition was given, and FIA came into being.
