To cover the actual cost of educating a student would require a significant tuition increase. Such an increase would violate one of First Baptist Academy’s core values; enrollment reflecting the racial, ethnic, and economic diversity within the body of Christ. FBA, like other private schools, generates its funding from a variety of sources. These include tuition, private grants, and fundraising from parents, alumni, and other community members. Tax-deductible donations to The Warrior Fund represent a vital 4% of the School’s operating budget, thus reducing each student’s annual tuition cost and encouraging a diverse student body.
