Our philosophy is based upon the Word of God. The primary objective and purpose of the academy is to train scholars in the way of life presented in the Scriptures while giving them a safe and nurturing learning environment. We seek to develop the whole child by addressing the physical, academic, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of each child.
We use the A Beka curriculum with a developmental age appropriate approach. Opportunities are available for each scholar to experience success and challenge on a daily basis. Teachers will have the opportunity to implement a Christian viewpoint into every area of learning.
To be considered for admission into First Baptist Christian Academy you must do the following:
- The student and parent must meet with an administrator for an interview and tour of the facility.
- If accepted, an enrollment packet and roster fee must be completed and turned in to hold the scholars spot. Spaces are limited, fill up quickly, and are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is your Admissions Policy?
“FBCA admits students of any race, color, or national origin to all rights, privilege, programs, and activities generally available to others. FBCA does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, national or ethnic origin in the admission procedures, in the administration of its educational policies, or in its hiring practices.”
What is your Attendance Policy?
FBCA ATTENDANCE POLICY
Regular attendance is required for all students enrolled at First Baptist Christian Academy. Excessive absence hinders the scholar’s progress. Sporadic or irregular attendance causes the scholar to lag in academic and spiritual growth, thus endangering academic and spiritual progress. It also makes it difficult for the teacher in conveying the important concepts that need to be taught.
Parents are asked to abide by the following:
- Parents should notify the school office by 8:30am when their child is absent unexpectedly and prearranged notification was not possible. Parents should also forward a note of explanation immediately following the student’s absence.
- An absence from school without a specific written medical or dental note from a doctor will be considered an unexcused absence. Students are entitled to five (5) excused notes from the parent, and not a physician, for a reasonable explanation of absence.
- An absence will be incurred if a scholar is absent for more than three hours.
- Three tardy arrivals will equal one absence.
- All students must arrive to school no later than 8:30am. Car rider begins at 8:05am. Car rider will end at 8:30am. After 8:30am, all students must be walked into the front office and signed in.
- Student pick up is 3pm – 3:20pm each afternoon. Please pick up your child at the proper time. Late charges will apply if this is not followed. Please refer to the student handbook for additional information.
- VPK students must attend 80% of the monthly class time in order for the voucher to fully cover students’ monthly tuition. Fees not covered by ELC due to lack of proper attendance will result in parent being charged for the remaining balance that was not covered by ELC.
All Preschool/VPK children are required to be signed in and out daily regardless of arrival/departure time.
