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.

Young ladies grades kindergarten through eighth grade were escorted by their fathers or special guests on Saturday, January 18 at the second annual Father Daughter Winter Ball, hosted by First Friends Parent Association. Held in the Fellowship Hall at Houston's First Baptist Church, close to 200 guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and photo opps. "The Winter Ball has been on the Smith family calendar since the day after we attended last year!" Stephen Smith, FBA parent enthusiastically stated. "Our girls went nuts and are already looking forward to next year. I love showing my daughters what a real date looks like!" The event was fun-filled with lots of energy, as FBA father Bobby Lee noted, "Dads sighed with relief when another dad convinced the DJ to put on some slow dancing music to give us a break." Lee continued, "However, our little dates jumped up into their dads arms so THEY could do the footwork. I don't think anyone was complaining though. Unfortunately, they do grow up." First Friends bid guests "sweet endings and warm wishes" with hot chocolate favors at the end of the night. Please stay tuned for the date and venue of next year's Father Daughter Winter Ball, and visit www.hfba.org/firstfriends for other great activities and events.
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.
