First Baptist Academy's Lower School equips Bridge Kinder through Fourth Grade students with foundational skills they need to grow academically, mature socially, and develop spiritually.
All FBA teachers model our core values in the classroom. As an accredited school and to fulfill our vision of developing scholars, every teacher holds a teaching certificate and are given multiple opportunities to participate in continuing education courses.
First Baptist Academy proudly offers a Bridge Kindergarten program as an optional “gift of time.” The student/teacher ratio is smaller than the Kindergarten ratio, which enables students to receive individualized instruction from the teacher.
Leadership opportunities are available for Fourth Grade students through delivering morning announcements for the whole school and leading worship in Lower School Chapel.
