FBA - First Baptist Academy


To all of our amazing teachers at FBA...
Thank you for everyday you spend with our kids... for every hug and smile... every bit of patience... every lesson taught... every caring moment... every single thing you guys do for every single kid in the school! You guys are exactly the example kids need to look up to, and we have, hands down, the best there could EVER be in teachers! Love you guys and appreciate all you do!
Ok guys! I have got several items for girls ...
Size 4t and size 5t...anyone want them for their very own?
We love FBA!!!!! Congratulations to our little kindergarten grad.
Khloe is missing all of our friends right now. We are
so sad that we didn’t get to have a ceremony for these babies. We are praying that everyone is staying safe and that we will all be together soon.
The Smith Kids sure do miss their special teachers at FBA and their classmates ❤
My daughter attends FBA Tuesday, Wed, and Thursdays. I work in Atl and am unable to pick her up. Looking for a sitter Tues-Sat 35 hours a week or someone who can pick my daughter up on those days and bring her home! I love FBA and am so happy with all the staff and supportive parents and don’t want to take her out! If any parents know anyone, please reach out!!! Thanks 🙂
Itz sofia noble on board
1st Grade Is Amazing... the kids are not only cute but... they is just so smart... and the teacher is pretty INCREDIBLE too!

What a pleasure it was to listen to our FBA Christmas musical! Everyone did a great job from bells to solos to speaking parts to hand motions and to praising our Lord and Savior!


1st grade through 8th grade families, we'll see you tonight at our FBA Christmas musical! Students need to report to their classrooms at 5:35pm. Sanctuary doors will open at 5, but please hold on to your kids until 5:35. Each student is allowed 4 guests which will max out our sanctuary, so please be mindful!
Be ready for a great message!

Our FBA Bike Club has become much more than just a club! The Covington (Ga.) Police Department has partnered with us in this endeavor! They ride along side our students, help with traffic crossings, teach trail etiquette along with making sure our bikes are ready to go each week with plenty of air in the tires and seats adjusted as needed! This week the police department generously provided a beautiful new bike to one of our students after his broke! I can’t say enough about these guys and the fun that we’ve had through our new bike club! Thanks to Jan Hudson for taking the lead!!
