FBA is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of Southwest (ISAS), a hallmark reserved for the finest private schools in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Mexico.
Even at the youngest age at FBA, our students are learning in innovative ways. Our Infant-2 year old program uses Mother Goose Time curriculum that is nationally recognized, enthusiastically taught, and makes learning fun.
Pre-K students take part in play and learning designed to equip them for Kindergarten and beyond. Each week they spend time in music, the computer lab, Spanish class, the library and P.E.
The Math In Focus (Singapore Math approach) program for K-4 students provides a consistent and strong emphasis on problem solving and model drawing, with a focus on in-depth understanding of essential math.
Computer tablets are issued to Middle School students to introduce and incorporate technology at the highest level.
The Harkness Method of teaching and learning pioneered at Phillips Academy in Exeter, NH, promotes active participation and intellectual engagement.
While these are some highlights, we encourage you to learn more about the academic offerings in each school in the Schools and Programs portion of our website.
