Institution Mixte La Foi de Lafferonney (official French title)
Referred to by the original name: Faith Academy
Directed by FanFan Janvier
Fanfan felt a strong leading from God to build a school for his people. He’s been amazed how God has worked in ways far beyond him to bring education to so many. Here’s a video from his perspective:
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 almost 550 Students.
Students start as young as age 3 (two years of pre-k)
Grades pre-k to 9th grade are offered. A 7th grade class was added Fall 2016; 8th grade in Fall 2017; and 9th grade in 2018 to complete the school.
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 a 9th Grade class (The first batch of 9th graders ALL passed the national exam at the end of the year!)
- Building a library which will have Creole, French, & English literature
- Preparing for music instruction in keyboard, guitar, and drums
- A congregation meets in the Chapel each Sunday. The Church of God of the Mountain Assembly of God averages more than 200 in attendance each week.
