Campus Facilities

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.

The Jones Center

In 2012, with the help of the late Hermon Jones and his wife, Bonnie, the school renovated its beautiful log cabin on the FACS campus to serve as The Jones Center for Guidance and Counseling. The front portion of the cabin is the oldest homestead still standing in Shelby County. A little piece of history right here on campus!

In 2021, FACS, in partnership with Creative Learning Systems, unveiled the new SmartLab located on the second floor of the east side of the building. This space opens many doors of opportunities for students to dive into creativity and innovation. The FACS Smart Lab is available for all students to use!
