Our History

The story of First Baptist Academy began in 1970 when James Moody and Marcene Adams founded Northwest Academy to serve the families of northwest Houston, providing them with a safe environment and a challenging education.

In 1980, the school became a ministry of Houston's First Baptist Church and continued to meet the spiritual and educational needs of its students.

In 1998, HFBC joined with other local churches in establishing Houston Christian High School. The upper grade levels of Northwest Academy became a part of this new school, and students in 8th grade and below moved to a beautiful new facility at the church and became known as First Baptist Academy.

First Baptist Academy's all-school production of "Treasures - Where Your Heart Is There Your Treasure Will Be Also" took place Thursday, December 11 in the Worship Center at Houston's First Baptist Church. FBA family and friends were serenaded by the ballads and carols, with a grand entrance by FBA Infants, and PreK3 through 2nd grade students. Students and faculty shared the story about our Savior's birth through song, dance, art, theatre, and band performances. Together the FBA family engaged in worshiping Jesus, the true treasure of Christmas. Friends of Fine Arts and First Friends provided a festive cookie reception after the performance - a favorite among the kiddos! A special thanks to all the FBA hands who served to make this a special evening.
FBA Student Council hosted a Dessert Live Auction on Friday, October 24th to benefit the charity Every Village. With their combined efforts, $2,079.29 was raised, while at the same time, students learned valuable team-building skills. These are the events that make FBA First in Philanthropy, and First in Fun. Over twenty delicious desserts, auctioned at prices ranging from $30 to $150 each, were provided by FBA middle school teachers. Fifth through eighth grade students, clad in college-wear, formed groups and pooled their funds together to compete in the live auction bidding. Praise the Lord for this great opportunity to share the truth of His Word by donations from this extremely spirited event!
