Faith Assembly Christian Academy was co-founded in 1998 by the late Apostle Mary D. McKenzie and the late Bishop Leroy McKenzie III in Durham, NC.  Their vision was to save the next generation by changing one child at a time.  They believed in building the whole child – spiritually, academically, physically, and mentally.  The sudden death of their nephew added fuel to there mission of changing the next generation. 
The McKenzie’s desire was to provide a quality Christian education at an affordable price.  The academy started with Kindergarten through the 3rd grade.  As the years passed, they began to add grade levels until the first graduating senior class walked across the stage in 2006.
