Reopening Plans

We are excited about starting another school year in person on September 8, 2020!
Our Health and Safety Plan (link below) will show the steps we are taking to mitigate the risk of
COVID-19 in accordance with CDC guidelines. We have spent the summer preparing and making
the necessary adjustments to our classroom(s).

Shenango ValleyFaith  Academy

In August of 2003 my wife, Cindy, and I followed the call of God upon our lives to start a Christian school which would serve the needs of families in the Shenango Valley in Mercer County, Pennsylvania by providing an educational alternative which espouses Christian values in a non traditional environment. Shenango Valley Faith Academy was birthed and currently resides in the Trail Blazer Building, 100 W. Ridge Ave., Sharpsville, PA 16150. 

Shenango Valley Faith Academy (SVFA) is a K-12 school which is recognized a a religious-based non-public school by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. We have a very low student to teacher ratio which allows us to provide individualized attention to each student.

Statement of Faith

We believe that the ultimate goal of Christian Education is to move students of all ages into a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.  Everything that is taught and emulated to our children should be founded in God’s Word. We believe that the role of the school is to be an extension of the local church and the home.  Our goal is to train up our students in the essential and indisputable teachings of the church – the body of Christ.

Mission Statement

Shenango Valley Faith Academy seeks to provide quality Christ-centered education to students utilizing the Accelerated Christian Education model, which is goal-centered and individualized to allow each student to excel at a rate commensurate with his or her skill level.


We are an independent Christian school. We are not affiliated with any particular church or denomination.
