Friends in Jesus Learning Center opened in 2001 as an outreach Christian ministry of First Friends Church serving the Hampton Roads community. Our goal was to provide a warm and nurturing Christian childcare environment for children ages two and a half through twelve years old. Christian education through the ABEKA curriculum is a very important part of the program.


In 2003, Friends in Jesus Learning Center began the expansion of its educational program with the addition of a Kindergarten program. Since that time our program has expanded from first through sixth grade. This program evolved into First Friends Christian Academy. We include preschool, kindergarten through sixth grade and before and after school care.


During the summer months, we offer a fun filled camp program for children ages two and half through twelve years old. Interesting field trips and water days make this an exciting program.


The experienced staff has established the trust and confidence of our parents by providing a secure, clean, friendly Christian based classroom environment. Teachers are well trained in the ABEKA curriculum. Ongoing training keeps our teachers current on educational methods and tactics, as well as knowledgeable in the needs of both the children and their parents program. Staff is also trained in CPR and first aid to ensure the safety of all our children.


Many denominations come together in the student body, faculty, staff and parents to create a strong school united in the teaching of God’s world. We count ministering to your child as a privilege from God. We strive to provide a safe, loving environment where we can lift up your child spiritually and academically.


Our mission statement state that Friends in Jesus Learning Center and First Friends Christian Academy staff will strive to provide the highest quality childcare and educational security in the Christian care and education we render.
