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.

Recently, students, faculty, staff and parents participated in a Walk for Water - raising money and awareness for Living Water International (an organization providing clean water wells in third world countries). After the walk, students competed in Field Day activities followed by a fun carnival. It was a great family event that was focused on serving others.
