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.
