First Baptist Academy is a half-day preschool that prepares children for kindergarten and elementary school. We seek 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 teach curriculum that meets current educational standards. Our students learn about God’s creation and how much He loves them. We have weekly Kindermusik and physical education classes (Ready, Set, Go). Our students visit our church library regularly for story time and book checkout. Of course, we also PLAY! Preschool children learn best through hands-on experiences and play, so we make sure those are the main parts of our daily activities. 

To complement our curriculum, we have touch-enabled interactive projectors (similar to smartboards) in some of our classrooms. We are blessed to be able to offer our students this innovative technology along with traditional preschool activities. This further enhances the teaching capabilities of our staff and the learning experiences of our students. Students interact with the curriculum software to learn phonics, reading, writing and math concepts.


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.  Our staff receives yearly training in early-childhood development and instruction. They are dedicated to helping their students and families navigate the preschool years and prepare for elementary school.

Age Groups

We have classes available for three and four year-olds as well as Transitional Kindergarten.  Class assignments are based on the child's age on or before August 31st of each school year.  (For Transitional Kindergarten, a child must be 5 by December 31st.)
