Together, we are shaping future leaders who will make a positive impact on their communities and inspire others to do the same. Join us on this transformative journey of building faith, empowering leaders, and creating a better future for all.

 Faith Academy Charter School, Rowan County’s only charter school, has grown rapidly since its inception, after the closing of the public school in Faith in 2021.

  • A ninth grade has been added, along with additional classrooms in first, second, and third grades.

  • A total of 807 students are enrolled for the current academic year. This meets the board’s enrollment goal.

  • The school has a wait list of more than 350 families, after adding 307 students for the 2023-’24 school year.

  • New students are chosen each year by lottery.

  • The school is tuition-free.

  • Our new school building was completed early fall 2023 to house grades K-9 the first year.

  • The former public school will be renovated to house grades 9-12.

  • The board plans to add an additional grade level each school year until reaching the goal of K-12.


Faith Academy Charter School was voted Best Elementary and Middle School in Rowan County by readers of The Salisbury Post in 2022-’23.
