Suffolk Christian Academy, formally known as First Baptist Christian School, was established in 1988 when First Baptist Church of Suffolk expanded its Weekday School ministry to include first through third grades. The school added fourth grade in 1990, fifth grade in 1992, sixth grade in 2002, seventh grade in 2003, eighth grade in 2005, ninth grade in 2006, tenth grade in 2007, eleventh grade in 2008, and twelfth grade in 2009. In December of 2012 the school incorporated to become an independent school. The school was renamed Suffolk Christian Academy.
The school incorporation was done in partnership with four area churches — Southside Baptist Church, Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church, Open Door Church, and First Baptist Church of Suffolk.
