Institution Mixte La Foi de Lafferonney (official French title)
Referred to by the original name: Faith Academy
Directed by FanFan Janvier
Faith Academy is located outside of Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti.
This rural area is significantly more populated than it was when the school first began in 2006!
Faith Academy provides education for nearly 450 Students.
Students start as young as age 3 (two years of pre-k)
Grades pre-k to 8th grade are offered. A 7th grade class was added Fall 2016. 8th grade was added Fall 2017.
Faith Academy’s feeding program provides lunch to all students.
Teachers identified one of the biggest obstacles to learning was hunger. The kids were too fatigued or distracted by hunger to pay attention. All students are now offered a free lunch.
Recent Changes or Projects:
- Adding an 8th Grade class (9th grade to follow next school year)
- Building a library which will have Creole, French, & English literature
- Preparing for eventual music instruction
- A new congregation meets in the Chapel each Sunday. The Church of God of the Mountain Assembly of God averages more than 100 in attendance each week.
