This is a big anniversary for this program! 35 years is a long time. In that time, we have seen the growth of our area explode in population. With it has come the need for good Bible based Christian and Catholic programs that have been sorely needed in our area. First Academy along with Mount Dora Christian Academy have been the leaders of our area with providing families, institutions that fit their needs.
