FTC Scholarship

We want to make you aware of a new scholarship opportunity at FBA!

The Leadership Team at First Baptist Academy has been aggressively pursuing a new opportunity to make FBA more affordable for families who seek the financial resources to have access to a private Christian education for their children.

We are excited to announce that we have received approval from the Florida Department of Education to offer the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship to the FBA community!

We have done the math, and in most cases, FBA families who have been recipients of FBA financial aid in the past may qualify for as much or more in FTC funds compared to​ ​the FBA financial aid fund.

For those families who meet the FTC income guidelines, FBA will require proof of FTC eligibility prior to processing their FBA Financial aid application for consideration.

Since 2002, the corporate community has committed more than approximately $3.3 billion, which has funded over 680,000 scholarships to ensure all children have equal opportunity to achieve their maximum potential through education. 


Could you or someone you know benefit?

Scholarships are awarded on a first come/first serve basis!

It’s as Easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Do your children qualify? See infographic above or HERE for income guidelines. If yes, apply for the FTC Scholarship HERE
  2. Apply for admission at FBA HERE
  3. Share your FTC letter of eligibility (6-8 weeks from date of completed application) with the FBA Admissions Department.

529 Savings Plans Offer Exciting New Options for Christian Schools

The recent tax reform law created a great opportunity for Christian schools and families. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law December 22, 2017. In a significant step forward that ACSI strongly supported and promoted, the law expanded 529 savings plans so that they now allow savings for K–12 tuition expenses. The maximum distribution for K–12 tuition is $10,000 per year per child for expenses incurred beginning January 1, 2018.
This means current account owners may begin using these funds immediately for K–12 tuition! (Be aware that states are still updating their laws so your state tax treatment may not yet be finalized.)
The practical effect of the change is that, beginning January 1, 2018, parents can begin to save for both college expenses and for K–12 tuition expenses and the earnings will grow free of federal tax. Special federal tax provisions exist for treatment of gifts to 529 savings plans so that even grandparents or extended family may contribute.

Payment Plans

First Baptist Academy uses the FACTS Tuition Management Program to handle our payment plans. If you pay your tuition through FACTS Tuition Management, you can check on the status of your account, the schedule of payments still to be made, a listing of those payments already made, and a complete listing of all activity through My FACTS Account.  

FACTS Tuition ManagementFACTS Tuition Management is the largest service provider in the industry serving schools in all 50 states. They have been in business since 1986 and specialize in working with schools like ours. 

Tuition Refund Insurance Plan

FBA expenses are incurred on an annual basis; therefore your obligation to pay the full year of tuition is necessary. To protect your investment of a full year's tuition, the Tuition Refund Insurance Plan is now available for those families financing their tuition (more than one payment) and is MANDATORY for those with FACTS accounts (2-12 payments). For those making one annual payment for tuition, you may purchase Tuition Refund Insurance on a voluntary basis. Partial refunds will be provided in the case of a job loss, job transfer out of the area, severe medical issues, death of a spouse, or when a student withdraws for non-medical reasons. Please see the full policy outline here.
