Welcome from the Head of Schools

Welcome, and thank you for partnering with First Odessa Christian Academy for your student’s education. You are part of something very special, a community of disciples and learners that will change our world for Christ!

As a Christian school, our focus is to develop the spiritual formation of each student to have an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ. The mission, vision and values of FOCA are the foundation of our academic institute. Our mission is to boldly teach Biblical truth, Christian character, and rigorous academic curriculum in a safe and nurturing learning environment. Here at First Odessa Christian Academy, we believe all parts of our lives bring glory and worship to God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 states “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” We live and teach this  wholeheartedly with a vision focused on producing academically-excellent students with a sound Biblical worldview.  Each student will be challenged to live a life marked by love, trust and obedience to God, along with hard work, drive, and passion for learning. This vibrant relationship will encourage constant growth- both spiritually and intellectually.

Our  academic plan combines a rigorous curriculum, engaging instruction and high expectations to prepare our learners for college. We accomplish this by bringing the home, church and school into an unwavering partnership that is critical to student success. When you join First Odessa Christian Academy, you become part of our family.

Please let me know how I can best serve you. I am blessed to be the leader of this great school and look forward to working with you and your children!

In Christ,

Mr. Tyler Press, M.Ed
