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.

FBA top fundraisers and runners presented a check of over $14,000 to Living Water International as a result of their efforts from Warrior Day 2015! Our K-8th grade students walked a distance of over 742 miles. As an FBA family, we challenged ourselves to collectively walk a mile carrying jerry cans filled with 40lbs of water in order to experience what girls like "Lucy" are faced with daily. 1,207 jerry cans were carried in the Water Walk Challenge by FBA families, faculty, and staff, resulting in a collective distance of over 7 miles "in Lucy's shoes" – a challenge met and exceeded by our Warriors!
