FBA is a great school. My three kids have gone there for over 10 years. My oldest was able to graduate with due credit and tools to help her succeed in college. My son will graduate from FBA this year. I have also taught at the school for over 10 years. Great administration.

We found FBA when looking to remove our children from public elementary and middle school. Since that time, one child has graduated from FBA and is about to have a Bachelor's degree in 3 years and the other is in high school. FBA has provided a safe, nurturing environment with advanced curriculum, to include dual credit classes, setting students up for great success both at FBA and after graduation. The small school setting allows students the opportunity to be in many extra curricular activities, creating well rounded students universities are looking for. We are blessed to have found FBA!!!

My children have been attending FBA for 8 years now and I have loved every year and so have they! They thank me all the time for sending them to FBA as they know its a sacrifice for them to go there, although its the most rewarding sacrifice!!! They have an advanced curriculum while still doing things that make sense for when they enter college and the workforce. Speech, Spelling Bees, Science Fairs, Art Fairs, Music, Band, Theatre, and sports. My kids get to do it all which make them very well rounded! There are other schools I could choose from but I have not found one I felt like I do with FBA.

My children started in the Preschool and I saw the love and structure they were shown. It gave me a peace of mind being away from them. They continued into elementary and I know they are being provided a great education with the morals and values we have at home. Although it our responsibility as their parents to help build their character, I know I have the support from the school too.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
