*AP Courses at FBA:

We believe the study of Advanced Placement coursework is valuable. Through it we can understand and evaluate in light of scripture and a biblical worldview the identities, histories, and values of humanity crossing a variety of academic disciplines. In order to qualify for AP credit, the Advanced Placement curricula at First Baptist Academy are based on the course structures provided by the College Board, but reflect our philosophy of presenting all information in light of a biblical worldview. Therefore, FBA students are required to read and evaluate a variety of literature and texts - both Christian and secular - which enables us to discuss societal values and movements from a Christ-centered perspective. In doing so, we seek to prepare students to engage controversial ideas and/or adult themes equipped with a biblical mindset.
