The curriculum at FBCA is standards based. Curriculum resources are a mixture of the best materials available centered upon the Word of God. ABeka and Bob Jones comprise the core of our curricular purchases.
The goal is not only the academic excellence of the student; but more importantly, the personal excellence of the student. The Bible tells us to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). Keeping this in mind, we attempt to instruct each child in the Christian way of life. Our day includes Bible classes, Scripture memorization and prayer. Throughout the day Bible truths are applied to day-to-day living and working with others.
Believing that reading is vital to learning, we teach according to the phonics method. Mathematics and Science teach the students that there is order and planning in God’s world. Students are instructed in Language Arts and handwriting so that neatness and order can enhance communicating with others. History is the story of God working out His plan on earth through man. Chapel is held once a week and may be led by teachers, school principal and/or ministers. Students with questions concerning doctrinal teaching will be directed to their parents and/or pastor.
What an honor and privilege it is to serve as Elementary Principal at First Baptist Christian Academy.Jessica Tracy
My post secondary studies began at West Texas State A & M University in Canyon, Texas where I received a Bachelor of Music degree and earned my teaching certification. After graduating from WT, I traveled to New York City where I attended the Juilliard School for two years. There I earned another Bachelor’s Degree of Music and a Master’s of Music. I have also earned certifications in Gifted and Talented education and have earned my principal's certification through the Texas Education Agency and the Association of Christian Schools International.
I love music and enjoyed playing the oboe and English horn for 36 years. I reached a time in my life when I felt I needed to step away from performing and began devoting my life to the service of the Lord. God tugged at my heart in a powerful way and instilled in me a heart for ministry and reaching the un-churched. I currently serve with Creek Kids at Clear Lake Community Church at the Clear Lake Campus. I have always prayed and asked God to place me where He wants me for His glory, and I believe that is why I am here at FBCA.
I love the fact that all of our students are being taught and exposed to the truth about Jesus Christ on a daily basis, as well as being challenged academically. I feel our students have an awesome opportunity. I believe they will grow up in a manner which will equip them for a Christ-filled life, and I am excited to be able to watch that happen!
