A T H L E T I C S

Welcome to the Faith Christian Academy Athletic Program. It is our desire that we intentionally pursue athletics to further grow and mature our students, and in this glorify God.  Athletics are an integral part of our educational process here at Faith Christian Academy.  It is our belief that participation in athletics provides the opportunity for developing lifetime skills that will help students in becoming well-rounded individuals. We hope that all students will participate in some level of our athletic program. FCA encourages parents, guardians, friends and family to invest in FCA athletics in a positive way to help enhance the memories and experiences of each student athlete.    

Faith Christian Academy competes in and adheres to the rules of the Mid Hudson Christian Athletic League (M.H.C.A.L.) and the Hudson Valley Athletic League (H.V.A.L.)

Winter Wrap-Up:

Faith Christian Academy's Athletic Program found great success this Winter season, on all fronts. 


The Boy's Varsity Basketball team finished the year with a 17-10 record, while capturing both the MHCAL regular season and tournament titles. Also, the team finished 3rd overall in the Hudson Valley Athletic League (best finish in school history) which poses very tough competition.

The Girl's Varsity Basketball team ended the season with a 16-10 overall record, taking 2nd place in both the MHCAL regular season and tournament. They also finished 3rd overall in the Hudson Valley Athletic League (best finish in school history) and advanced to the Semi-Final game in the HVAL playoffs.

The Boy's Middle School Basketball team finished the year undefeated with a 15-0 record. The team owned both small margin, and lopsided victories on their resume, making for a very memorable season to say the least (note: the team went head-to-head with Spackenkill Middle School's basketball team in an unofficial, non-league game). The Boys were also named the MHCAL regular season and tournament champions. The team has a bright future with many of its players expected to return next Winter.

The Girl's Middle School Basketball team played its inaugural season and finished with a 6-0 record. The team will be expanding its schedule and focus next season in the MHCAL and HVAL, with Coach Ron Devincenzi at the reins, stepping in as the new head coach. FCA's Athletic Program is very pleased with the results from the first year, and strongly believes that next year the team will be even more efficacious.

The Varsity Bowling team, also a new addition to the Athletic Program, found success throughout the Winter. Four of its Bowlers consistently placed in the top five at each match - a match consists of three schools and around 45 athletes. Also, three of FCA's Bowlers (Brandon Chen, Michael Millan and Elijah Smalls) placed in the top six in the HVAL Friendship tournament, which consisted of four schools and 60 athletes.


Congratulations to all of our Coaches, Parents and Athletes for making a commitment to the Program and allowing our students to experience a different scope of success being outside of the classroom.


We look forward to a very bright future as Faith Christian Academy's Athletic Program continues to "grow, mature and glorify God through participation in athletics." FCA is also very grateful for the countless hours of sacrifice that its Athletic Director, Mr. Arnesen, dedicates to the school. Mr. Arnesen continues to visualize the future for the Program, while striving to keep Christ first, Education second and the rest succeeding.
