Welcome to FBA!

Thank you for your interest in First Baptist Academy!  We are so excited about the way God has blessed our school and we look forward to what we believe God is doing as we journey toward the future.  In the fall of 2002, First Baptist Academy opened with its first ever kindergarten class of 16 students.  Since that time, we have grown to 230 students in grades K-12.  We currently hold dual accreditation with ACSI and AdvancED/NCA. 

First Baptist Academy is a ministry of the First Baptist Church of O'Fallon and as such is governed by the church through the Senior Pastor/Governing Board and the School Administrator. The Statement of Faith found in the Parent Handbook outlines the Biblical and Spiritual beliefs on which the church and school are founded.

First Baptist Academy provides a Biblically-based, student-focused, academically-challenging, and culturally-relevant educational environment. Designed to develop the entire child to his/her God-ordained potential, First Baptist Academy implements the school's educational philosophy through emphasizing academic and Biblical excellence and by holding students accountable for the highest standards of conduct and behavior. The Philosophy of Education and Mission Statement found in the Parent Handbook clarify these positions.

We appreciate your interest in First Baptist Academy and encourage you to seek whatever answers you may need in determining if FBA is the right school for your child. Please contact the school office (618-726-6040) if you wish to have a copy of our application packet which includes the Parent/Student Handbook, an explanation of our tuition and fees, and an application form. Thank you again for your interest in First Baptist Academy.
