First Baptist Academy


First Baptist Academy seeks to develop the whole child spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally, and socially. It is our sincere desire to strengthen families and provide positive guidance by teaching Christian values for a sound spiritual foundation. We are a half-day preschool that prepares children for kindergarten and elementary school.


All teachers are experienced in working with preschoolers and have their North Carolina Early Childhood Credentials or higher. All Staff members have been screened through a criminal background check. Teachers have been chosen because of their education, experience, Christian maturity, warmth and nurturing skills. They have many insights into communicating with young parents and are ready to listen and share.

Age groups

We have classes available for children aged three years through four years, Transitional Kindergarten and a half-day Kindergarten* class for five year olds. Class assignments are based on the child's age on or before August 31st of each year. (For Transitional Kindergarten, a child must be 5 by December 31st.)

*We are currently accepting deposits for a possible half-day Kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year. The class will be limited to 12 students. There are currently (as of 3/7/18) 4 spots open. Please call the Academy office ASAP for more information.

    Parent Testimonies

  • "First Baptist Academy is an amazing school! Our son is in his third year at FBA. Attending FBA has blessed my child spiritually, academically, socially and emotionally. He is greeted with a high fives, hugs and smiles from staff as he gets out of our van each morning and returns to me happy each afternoon. I always drop him off knowing he will be safe and growing in his academics and character because of the caring and compassionate staff at FBA. The teachers are truly preparing my child for academic success."
  • "The curriculum is great. Both of my kids have learned so much just coming 3 days a week. All of the staff is wonderful and have made a point to know my family and children by name. Even those teachers who have never had them in class."
  • "Love First Baptist Academy! My boys loved preschool here! The teachers and staff are the BEST. Would not have wanted to send my kids anywhere else.."
  • "The most fabulous thing about [First Baptist Academy] is the closeness and family atmosphere that is all around when you walk in the door."
