For more than a quarter century, FACS was housed on a 6.75 acre campus on North Highland Street. In November of 1999, First Assembly Memphis Church and First Assembly Christian School moved east to what is now a 55-acre campus in Cordova. The main church and school building are known for its beautiful spire atop the highest point in Shelby County at 8650 Walnut Grove Road.
In 2009, FACS opened a second academic building on the same campus; the new facility was given its own address, 8636 Walnut Grove Road. And in 2019, a large addition to the original 8650 Building was completed.
Students have access to two full-size gymnasiums, two dining halls, fine arts music wing for chorus and band, a multi-purpose room with theatre staging, lighting, and sound, spacious multi-purpose activity rooms for children and youth, well-equipped science, computer, and art labs, and beautiful worship spaces for chapel and musical performance.
Built to serve as a dedicated space for this female sport, the softball field is home to the Lady Crusaders and hosts TSSAA regulation games.
Significant renovations to the baseball field and an indoor baseball training facility were completed in 2016, made possible through the generosity and hard work of FACS parent Brenda Carter and other members of the Baseball Boosters.
The FACS baseball locker room is a great space where the team can come together to prepare for games and practices, bond as a team, and store their gear.
Built by families who gave generously, the press box adds to the nostalgic playing atmosphere of the beloved American sport. It is also equipped with a concession stand where proceeds help support the growing program.
Our FACS outdoor baseball field is a large, rectangular playing surface that is designed specifically for FACS baseball games. It consists of several main components, including the playing field, the dugouts, the backstop, the outfield fence, and various markers and other equipment. The dugouts are located on opposite sides of the field and provide a shaded area for the players to sit and store their equipment during the game. The backstop is a fence located behind home plate, and it helps to keep stray pitches and foul balls from leaving the playing field. The outfield fence has a high barrier that surrounds the playing field and marks the boundary between fair and foul territory. Ours is made with a chain-link fencing. Various markers and equipment are can also be found throughout the field to help players and umpires keep track of the game. These include foul poles, which mark the boundary between fair and foul territory, and bases, which are made of soft foam rubber. You will also notice our scoreboard, which displays the score and other game-related information. The FACS baseball field is a well-maintained playing surface that provides a safe and enjoyable environment for players and spectators alike.
Located in the 8636 Building, the varsity gym hosts TSSAA regulation games and tournaments. A second gym is also available in the main building, allowing multiple teams to practice and play.
Lovingly named in honor of an FACS family, Baker Soccer Field is equipped for regulation play and serves as a great addition to the athletic offerings at the school.
Our press box is located on top of the bleachers and overlooks the football field. It is a designated area for journalists, broadcasters, coaches, and other media personnel to cover and report on the game. With the clear view of the entire field, this allows the action to be shared in real-time. Overall, our press box is a critical element in football games, providing a designated space to report the action to fans and the broader public.
Named in honor of the first playing field for the FACS Crusaders, Hanks Stadium holds countless memories for FACS families over the years.
