FBCA launched 7th grade in 2012 and 8th grade in 2013, as they faithfully continued the process of expanding the ministry of educating today’s youth to be tomorrow’s leaders for society. Currently FBCA serves approximately 300 students in preschool through grade seven offering full-day kindergarten and up to two sections of each grade. FBCA values a low teacher/student ratio, and class sizes are limited to no more than 20 students.
At FBCA we understand that all students are created and loved by God. We exist to provide a Christ centered Bible-based education. Along with high academic standards, we emphasize the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We encourage students to strive to reach their full potential through their study of academics and scripture. We also encourage them to discover the gifts and talents God has blessed them with and to answer God’s spiritual calling to serve others for His glory.
Governance: Under God, in loving submission to one another according to God’s Word.
Bible Verse: And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.Luke 2:52 NIV
