Fr. Christmas Academy opened its doors on it’s new campus in 2018 to offer a quality education that would otherwise not be available to the many of our students. We offer an education focused on individuality, creativity and  excellence.

FCA was founded by the Tanzania School Foundation.  Witnessed by TSF, the local schools are overcrowded, dilapidated and government educational investments are minimal.  Tanzania spends less (as a share of GDP) on the
education sector than most of its regional peers. The child population in Tanzania is currently 22 million and is expected to reach 58 million by 2050.  Something had to be done…so we did it. 

FCA offers quality, safe education for students. 

We currently sponsor students.

Our solution to the education problem in Tanzania, is to offer a unique way of teaching. We are required to implement the Tanzanian curriculum, however supplement it with curriculum from around the world. We use the best of Tanzanian and international teaching strategies to provide students with a well rounded education.  We provide a safe and nurturing learning environment.

Building Continues

The Ministry of Education in Tanzania is requiring that the Fr. Christmas Academy build more infrastructure!  (They required that we change our name from St. Nicholas too)

We want to grow the FCA.  Currently the Tanzania government is preventing us from growing another grade every year.  The students are forced to find another school after grade one.  This is not ideal for a number of reasons.  Help us continue educating their students today.
