About Us
Spencer Memorial Baptist School was founded in 1957 by a group of Spencer Memorial Baptist Church members who were interested in providing a Christian education for their children. The names of the church and school were changed in March 1985 to Tampa Baptist Church and Academy. The high school was started in the fall of 1986 with a 10th grade, adding a class each year until the first official senior class of thirteen students was established in the 1988-1989 school year. On June 1, 2007, the name of the school was changed to Tampa Bay Christian Academy to better communicate its mission and the diversity of its students. In May 2013, Tampa Bay Christian Academy of Florida, Inc. was incorporated with the state of Florida.

Tampa Bay Christian Academy of Florida, Inc. is an independent Christian school incorporated with the state of Florida in May 2013. It is not affiliated with any church except as a tenant of North Rome Baptist Church. The academy is managed by its school board. The board is responsible for establishing school policies, approving the annual budget, and recommending staff for employment.
Mission Statement
Tampa Bay Christian Academy of Florida is educating for eternity by seeking to nurture the spirit, mind, and body of the international and culturally diverse Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade student population through a Christ centered, developmentally appropriate and safe educational environment. Our goal is to partner with families and churches to enable students to develop and apply a biblical worldview to become servant leaders in a changing world.
Vision Statement
Tampa Bay Christian Academy will be regionally, nationally and internationally recognized as a pace setter for academic and moral excellence and innovative educational practices, developing well-rounded Christian leaders of godly conviction who influence their world for Jesus Christ through evangelism and discipleship.
