CRESTVIEW — Opening a private preschool at Lifepoint Church has been a dream for years, Christina Drake said.

Now, that dream is becoming a reality.

Lifepoint Academy, located in the church's South Ferdon Boulevard building, has been certified with the Florida League of Christian Schools, and now is enrolling children and accepting teaching applications.

It couldn't come soon enough, Drake, the school's director, said.

“It’s something needed in this community,” she said. “We are looking to add a godly-Christian influence into (a child’s) young development.”

Enrollment for 75 children, ages 3 to 5, is underway for the academy’s first day, Aug. 18, Drake said.

Contact Drake, 682-3518 or, for more information on the preschool.
