First Baptist Academy is an Early Childhood - 8th Grade educational community committed to the pursuit of knowledge and the development of wisdom in a Christ-centered setting. Students’ individual strengths and talents flourish in a nurturing atmosphere that encourages personal growth and corporate unity.
Our campus, shared with Houston’s First Baptist Church, provides a familial setting in which Early Childhood & Primary (Infants - Pre-K), Lower School (K-4) and Middle School (5-8) students grow alongside one another. A spirit of inquiry and joy characterizes students’ development geared toward the realization of their giftedness in Christ and the opportunity to use those gifts for His glory.
We believe these distinctives set First Baptist Academy apart among Houston’s private school offerings. At the same time, we stand among the city’s most prestigious group of schools accredited by Independent Schools Association of Southwest (ISAS) due to our rigorous academics, diverse athletics opportunities and an exceptional fine arts department.
We are proud to be voted the “Best Private School” by readers of the Memorial Examiner.
