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.

Throughout March and April, students raised money for Living Water International. Through a Walk-a-Thon on April 5th, and by collecting money in bottles for several weeks, students raised over $33,000 to help people in third world countries have access to clean water. The announcement was made at the spring pep rally in front of students, faculty, staff and parents. Josh Dyson, FBA Chaplain, presented the check to Gary Loveless, one of the founders of Living Water International and Danielle Dearing, a Living Water International Board Member and FBA Parent and Board Member. Several weeks ago, Living Water International informed FBA administration that they had found a donor who would match up to $25,000 of what FBA students raised. Including these matching funds, we are thrilled to announce that Living Water International will receive over $58,000 due to the great work of FBA students.
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.
