Mission


Our Mission is to equip students with the Truth of God's Word while developing their character, intellect, and potential to explore, create, challenge, and lead.
Psalm 86:12; Matthew 28:19; II Timothy 3:16-17

Welcome from the Interim Head of School

Welcome to First Baptist Academy! We have the joy of equipping students with the Truth of God’s Word in an educational environment. When asked “What makes FBA the place for my child?” I can say we whole-heartedly follow Proverbs 22:6 which states, “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

One way we train up a child is by offering a biblical worldview of all subjects. We train our students to see the Bible as the foundation of all other texts, such as in math, in science, in history, and in language arts.

Another way we train up a child is through our gifted faculty who love the Lord and love our students. They pour their hearts into this place and are the true heartbeat of our school. Please come on a tour and see for yourself!

Additionally, we train up a child to Explore, Create, Challenge, and Lead through our academics, athletics and fine arts programs. I love our momentum to educate, train and discover student’s unique gifts through an eternal lens.

We are thankful for each child who spends a season with us and take it with great responsibility. My prayer is that God will lead your family to join our FBA Warrior family. We anticipate your arrival!

Faithfully serving,


Teresa Chambers, M.S., CPA

History

Originally founded as the independent Northwest Academy, First Baptist Academy was adopted by Houston's First Baptist Church (HFBC) and relocated to the present shared facilities in 1998. Together, the communities of Northwest Academy and FBA share a combined history of more than 45 years.

Today, we are one of Houston's top rated private schools because of our academic rigor, diverse athletic opportunities, and outstanding fine arts program. Our students experience the love of Christ each day because of the incredible faculty & staff and their dedication to pour into their students spiritually, while challenging them academically, athletically, and creatively.
