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 189 students in grades K-12. We currently have dual accreditation with ACSI (through middle school) and NCA. The 2011-2012 school year will see the first high school graduation and should complete ACSI accreditation at the high school level as well.
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.
