In the fall of 2006 Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church answered the call to the vision of Pastor Lonnie E. Anderson, Jr. Members began praying and interceding for the need of a Christian academy, as presented in the Pastor’s vision. The following year a group of people, who had a burning passion, met to help incorporate a school. Thus the Fredrick Douglass Reese Christian Academy was birthed Oct. 12, 2008.
Our vision is to establish our own Christian academy, where the Bible, Foreign language, and a true sense of Blacks in History are a part of the curriculum; create an educational atmosphere that will challenge our children to reach for academic excellence; a place where the name of Jesus is not resented, but taught as a reality and a sure foundation to all of life’s challenges; a disciplined scholastic environment where prayer is embraced and the expectation to excel is fostered and nurtured; a Christ centered educational structure where our children can grow up knowing and appreciating the history of the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible); the majestic pearls of the Poetry books; the wisdom of the Prophets; the grace of Gospel; the history of the Church in Acts; and the biblical precepts in the Epistles and understand the signs of the times in Revelation.
...and you will know
the truth and the truth
will make you free.
FD Reese Christian Academy seeks to partner with you to cultivate you child’s development by providing a Christ Centered Education that nurtures individual growth, instills discipline and respect for authority. We expose students to the contributions of people of color in history and develop Christian character according to the Word of God.
The purpose of F.D. Reese Christian Academy is to encourage Christ likeness in every student. To accomplish this purpose we want to provide conditions whereby boys and girls can receive the truth of God’s Word to develop Christ-like attitudes and actions. Jesus instructed His disciples in John 8:32, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free,” Not only is it our objective to teach the truth, but also to teach our students how to apply the truth wisely to their own lives. In John 16:13 we are promised that “when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth.”
Our Christian school has the responsibility to provide the best possible education. A Biblical worldview in the vital areas of life, spiritual growth, education, personal self-discipline, and patriotism, must be strongly stressed to each student during his years of training. We desire to minister to the needs of the whole child and to promote his spiritual and moral growth, academic and intellectual progress, and physical and social development.
Additionally, our Christian school is to be an extension of the Christian home and church, and thus provide a continuity of training for Christian young people. We, as Christian educators, desire to train each student to accept individual responsibility to God for his actions and to challenge him to glorify God in every facet of his life.
