Our School

First Baptist Academy is a private, non-profit Christian school operating as an extension of the teaching ministry of First Baptist Church Opelika. The curriculum provides a traditional Christian education founded on the principles of the Scriptures. These principles are incorporated into each subject throughout every class and by all instructors, to develop within each student a Christian philosophy of life and a biblical worldview.


Our vision is to become a dynamic Christ-centered educational ministry whose graduates are spiritually mature, intellectually sound, emotionally balanced, and influential in the world, all for the glory of God.


Our mission is to glorify God through academic and spiritual excellence. Accordingly, First Baptist Academy will partner with the home and strive to:

  • encounter students with the truths of the gospel; 
  • edify students to develop a Christlike personality;
  • empower students to become personally and socially responsible adults;
  • encourage students to discover their purpose for lifelong ministry.
