Founded in 1933, Neighborhood Church (Stafford Academy) has a history in education. Through the years the church has operated daycare and preschool ministries, an elementary grade school and a school for children with learning disabilities. In 1986, the congregation made a significant decision to relocate south of Portland.
In 1994 the church began constructing facilities on 30 acres southwest of the Interstate 205 and Stafford Road intersection. The campus was sufficiently developed to begin Stafford Academy in the fall of 2004. Excellent classrooms, common spaces, and play areas make a great campus for preschool through kindergarten with a goal of growing thru 8th grade in the future. The Neighborhood Church believes Stafford Academy is a great blessing to our community and a wonderful ministry for the Neighborhood Church congregation
