Welcome back to another school year! The middle school faculty and staff have been working hard to prepare for a great experience for your student! This year we will be encouraging everyone to be “Above the Line” in all we do and say. Micah 6:8 charges us to “do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” These are areas of our life we can all work on. We will seek the Holy Spirit to lead us in living “Above the Line.”
Allow me this opportunity to alert you to changes in our beginning of the year activities. Monday, August 13th will be a new format. Our Back to School Family Fun Night will include our annual barbecue as well as a new opportunity to see our fall sports teams introduced. More information will be coming shortly.
On Tuesday, August 21st, we will have a Curriculum Night for parents only. This will give you an opportunity to follow your student’s schedule, meet their teachers, and learn how to help him or her how to be successful this year. Please mark your calendars for these two events!
Please join me in welcoming new faculty and staff this year. Leeanne Scullin will be teaching Language Arts and Lindsay Villemont will be teaching History. Kristen Bonnett will be in the school office as my Administrative Assistant. Also, Rebecca Curran has joined the staff as our Guidance Counselor. Robin Lowery will be in the role of Receptionist and she will help facilitate all attendance this year. All of them are excited to work with you!
Please join me in praying God’s protection, provision and blessing for this school year as we live Above the Line! Looking forward to seeing you all soon and all the Lord has in store for us this year!

FBA Middle School Highlights
Middle school students excelled as the top fund raising group in the community for The Pregnancy Resource Center’s annual Walk for Life. They also excel in ministering to St. Matthew’s House, Florida Baptist Children’s Home, and Harbor Chase.
Middle school students are trained in conflict resolution skills. How do we build a real, right relationship with the Lord and others? Real, right relationships are the focus of middle school life.
Middle School students are featured speakers in end of the year chapels. They make presentations in apologetics, biblical world view, bioethical issues and our American Heritage.
Eighth grade boys are enlisted and then mentored, discipled, coached and trained to be steward leaders for the middle school and beyond. Vision, skills, incentives, resources and an action plan are all vital components to the leadership program that meets once a week throughout the school year.
Eighth graders are trained in etiquette which they put into practice when they go to a formal dining event.
Eighth grade students are trained to take a stand against abortion on demand by learning how to debate the issue in the public square.
Seventh and eighth grade students are trained to understand and communicate the five biblical principles that our founding fathers used in the Declaration of Independence to fashion the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America.
Middle school students have an opportunity to take Band, Strings or Choir. Middle school is dedicated to the valuable role that music plays in academics and life.
Students are trained in biblical world view so they can articulate with clarity and conviction what they believe and why they believe it.
