Dear FBA Family and Friends:
God has called us to the task of partnering with Christian parents who are seeking to instruct their children in the ways of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Instructing and shepherding students infants through 8th grade is not only a privilege, it is a great responsibility. Every day, students are challenged in their pursuit of academic excellence to order to prepare the entirety of their being to engage their world for Christ. At FBA, biblical truth is woven into every fiber and discipline so as each student matures, he learns to view the world and the culture in which he lives through the lens of God's Word.
The Christian educational philosophy practiced by First Baptist Academy is Kingdom Education. This philosophy is built on the understanding that when parents, churches, and Christian educators partner together with intentionality to lead children to Christ, build them up in Christ, and equip them to serve Christ, they are able to achieve this critical mission of preparing the next generation to love and serve Christ and others.
Rigorous academics are vital to our program as we guide students to increased knowledge and wisdom using God’s Word as the lens by which we teach our students to view His world. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We understand that the way we view and teach our students about God’s world is different from “the world’s” view. At First Baptist Academy, we seek to have the mind of Christ to glorify God with our lives and further His Kingdom.
All for His Glory,
Susan Johnson, Head of School
