Welcome To
First Baptist Academy

Since being founded in 1996, First Baptist Academy has experienced rapid growth to become one of the largest, private Christian schools in the Naples area for PreK 3 -12 grades. Educating students for life, learning and leadership, FBA enrolls over 500 students throughout Southwest Florida from Marco Island, Naples, Bonita Springs, Estero and Fort Myers.

First Baptist Academy is a ministry of First Baptist Church Naples.  As a ministry of the church, we are blessed to share the 100-acre campus God has provided in Naples, Florida and are also privileged to be a part of the church's mission of "making Christ known, in Southwest Florida and beyond."

First Baptist Academy offers a comprehensive program balanced with a biblical worldview, college preparatory academics, competitive athletics, and compelling fine arts.  Students from preschool through 12th grade learn in a safe, engaging and caring community where class sizes are small and personal relationships with teachers and staff thrive.  We are accredited by ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) and AdvancEd.

Thank you for taking the time to view our website and learning about our academy. The best way to experience FBA is visiting our campus where “every day is an open house.” Come see for yourself why we think FBA is best among private Christian schools in Collier County and the state of Florida.
