What We Do


Pastors Frederic and Gloria Pinkney founded Joshua Christian Academy, a ministry of Joshua Christian Faith Center, Inc. Phase 1 of the visions for this educational service opened in August 1996 with six students and nine employees. With this beginning, the nursery through pre-kindergarten program was established. Through divine ordinance and the power of God, we have added Phase 2 and 3 of four programs to include grade school and upper school (consisting of middle and high school) and our enrollment has increased to over 200 students.
We praise God for the vision and command that He has afforded this ministry while waiting patiently in expectation as He manifests His promise.


The mission of Joshua Christian Academy is to serve as a Bible-based Christian institution of learning, educating students with a blend of academic excellence and distinct Christian values that will prepare them for living a productive life,spiritually,academically,and socially.


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Proverbs1:7
Wisdom and knowledge come from God, therefore man’s education is complete only when God and His Wordareatthecenterofalllearning. In education we are concerned with the total person; the complete intellectual, spiritual, physical, and socialbeing. We believe the needs of the total person can be met only when approached from a Christian or Biblical philosophy.

A Bible-based Christian School, founded on high academic and spiritual standards, Joshua Christian Academy exists to educate all students to high levels of academic skills and knowledge, while fostering positive growth in social and emotional behaviors and attitudes. We seek not only to maximize every student’s knowledge and positively affect attitudes and behaviors, but also to assist students to discover God’s calling in their lives so that they may live for His glory.


The result of cumulative prayer, preparation, planning, research, knowledge and love, our Bible-based Christian school’s goal is to prepare students for life by implanting in them the word of God and His teachings as well as daily magnifying Him in their home, church, school and community. JCA strives to successfully educate the total child.


We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, written by men, divinely inspired and that it is the supreme, infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all that come to Him through Jesus Christ.

We believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal and only begotten Son of God conceived of the Holy Spirit, of Virgin Birth, sinless in life, making atonement for the sins of the world by His death. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension and visible return to the world, according to His promise.

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convict the world from sin, of righteousness and of judgment,and to regenerate,sanctify and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ.

We believe that allmen by nature and by choice are sinners but that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that who so ever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God. We believe in the church – a living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head, and of which all regenerated people are members.

We believe that a local church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, immersed on a credible confession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship. We believe that these local churches were committed for perpetual observance, the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and that God has laid upon these churches the task of proclaiming to a lost world the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior, and the enthroning of Him as Lord and Master. We believe that all human betterment and social improvements are inevitably the by product of such a Gospel.

We believe that every human being is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that therefore, church and state must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

Currently Joshua Christian Academy’s Humanities Program includes such classes as:

  • English Grammar
  • Leading private equity firms
  • History
  • Literature
  • Geography

What People Say

Visit this page from time to time for updates.

  1. My son has been at Joshua Christian Academy since he was 14 weeks. He is now in the 6th grade. Joshua is like a big family; they look out for each other and you can feel the love and concern as a parent. They have a fine arts program that provides students with the opportunity to expand on their creativity. My son loves to play the drums and JCA teaches him the necessary skills that he needs in order to enhance his talent. They also provide him the opportunity to do so in their weekly chapel programs. Most of all, Joshua Christian Academy is a Christian based school that teaches the word of God and values.

  2. My son started in Joshua Christian Academy’s Preschool Program. He is now in the 4th grade and I have been very impressed with the school’s tremendous growth and dedication to the students. There is a strong sense of community and everyone makes you feel like family when you walk through the door. My son is always greeted by name, which is very welcoming. We also appreciate the excellent communication, including weekly school newsletters, weekly class updates on the teacher websites and prompt responses to e-mails. The academics and use of technology are also wonderful and very helpful!

  3. Yes to Joshua! This is my daughter’s first year at Joshua Christian Academy. She has improved in her grades and has taken an interest in chorus this year. The teacher is great at keeping the students focused on their academics and excelling on grade level. As a parent, I appreciate how the teacher keeps me informed of homework assignments via Class Dojo and upcoming lesson topics. My daughter is at ease in school which is important to me. I am glad my family and I chose this school for my daughter's education.
