MISSION



HISTORY

In August 1998, First Baptist Academy opened its doors to begin educating students. This school was founded to train minds, develop moral character and enrich the spiritual lives of all people who may come within the ambit of its influence.

Now, more than 20 years later, FBA has expanded from serving Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students to serving Infants through Eighth Grade students, and their families. More than 800 students have graduated from FBA and entered highly respected high schools in the greater Houston community.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to equip students with the TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD while developing their character, intellect, and potential to explore, create, challenge, and lead.
Psalm 86:12; Matthew 28:19; II Timothy 3:16-17

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

The educational philosophy of First Baptist Academy (“FBA”) is based on a God-centered view that all truth is God’s truth, and that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God which contains this truth. We acknowledge and affirm that every person has been created in the image of God with a unique identity. Thus, we want every person in our school to grow as an individual; acknowledging, appreciating, and pursing the identity which God has given and following the course which God has established.

FBA challenges students to attain academic, emotional, physical, and spiritual excellence to the glory of God. This philosophy guides our endeavors to promote high academic standards while helping students achieve skill in creative and critical thinking using an integrated curriculum across all subject areas. Thus, students will be able to pursue the post-secondary education of their choosing preparing them to be knowledgeable Christian participants in our nation and the world.

Today, our alumni are serving and leading in their communities making an impact in professions such as education, business, medicine and ministry, for His Kingdom.
