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.

The First Baptist Academy Drama Department staged their production of Pride and Prejudice this Spring in the Worship Center of Houston's First Baptist Church. For all in attendance, it was truly a magnificent performance. Students spent nearly 100 hours after school and on some Saturdays in rehearsal and their dedication shone through from the opening curtain to their final bow. The drama department is proud to honor eighth graders Eliza Pillsbury, Connor Riggsby, and Chloe Williamson, each of whom took their final bows at FBA on Friday, March 27.
Influential world figures studied by sixth grade students throughout the year, beginning with the ancient Mesopotamians and ending with the twentieth century, were brought to life through their presentations at the Sixth Grade Wax Museum this March. The timeline has 15 unique stations that represent significant periods in our world's history. Groups of sixth graders, dressed as notable persons who made a significant impact on our world during that time period, will great you at each station. Each sixth grader has prepared a short speech about their chosen person. Their group will also display a video and a timeline that further represents their specific time period. Be prepared to meet Hammurabi, Ramses, Alexander the Great, Queen Elizabeth and even Anne Frank! It will be an educational and entertaining tour.
