We have found a home at First Baptist Academy in O'fallon! We were looking for strong integration of Biblical truth throughout the curriculum and a caring faculty. This Christian school is filled with teachers and staff member that love the Lord, and lead by example. They are willing to go above and beyond for their students, to ensure they succeed. My daughter goes to school excited and feels loved by everyone there. Less than a year, I have seen her grow academically, spiritually, and emotionally. I recommend this school for so many reasons and I am grateful that God led me to FBA.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
