It is our joy to assist parents by providing a school where their children can receive an outstanding education and Christian values. For 20 years, First Baptist Christian Academy has been a great place for educating children from preschool through High school. Children here love to learn! In addition to academic achievements, they also learn to love God and love others!
Our entire faculty and staff are dedicated to helping each child reach his/her greatest God given potential. We believe that well educated Christian youth will have a great influence for good on our future communities and our nation. Our prayer is that these young people will not only learn to be successful in this world, but will come to know Jesus personally and experience the joy of serving Him now and for eternity!
Please take the opportunity to visit our campus or review our web site and see for yourself the great work being done here at FBCA! We would love to have the opportunity to assist you by providing a quality Christian education for your child!

Stanford Achievement Test 2014:
GPA: The weighted grade point system is used. It is based on students' numeric semester averages in all courses taken. Honors/AP classes are weighted with an extra point added to the GPA. Only classes taken at FBCA will be included in GPA determination for honors; however, all high school classes are used for transcripts. FBCA does not rank students because of small class sizes.
The grading scale:
A = 90 - 100
B = 80 - 89
C = 75 - 79
D = 70 - 74
F = 0 - 69
