School Notes:

Believing that God’s Word is the basis for all truth, we strive to integrate Biblical principals with academic knowledge. First Baptist Academy’s staff recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children and encourages close partnerships between parents and school personnel in every phase of the student’s development.  Parents and teachers work in concert to guide the child in developing his/her abilities.
