First Baptist Academy provides a Visual and Performing Arts Program to foster and develop gifts, talents, and abilities for the glory of God. James 1:17a states, “Every good and perfect gift comes from above.” We recognize that every student is uniquely created by the Master Designer, with a God-ordained purpose and plan. The connecting pages will provide you with an overview of each of the visual and performing arts courses.
Some of the courses offered are listed as Related Arts classes for Elementary school, while others are electives in Middle and High School.

High School Music Department
Every year our high school music classes participate in different workshops or performances, and a local service project. On February 22nd and 23rd, students traveled to Orlando to be a part of Universal Studios Art of Foley Sound Design Workshop, where they experienced the work involved with an animated film. The links below show the product of this workshop, vocals and sound performed by our very own students! They also volunteered with Second Harvest Food Bank to help the ministry with food sorting and cleaning.

d’accordo - Pronunciation: /daˈkɔrdo/ (Italian) in accord.
Philippians 2:2 Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
In 2016, First Baptist Academy hosted the d’Accordo Music Festival, our 2nd annual choir festival where middle & high school choirs from faith-based, private schools in Collier County came together in one accord to make music for His glory! Over 80 students came together from FBA, Saint Ann’s, Royal Palm Academy and St. John Neumann to sing several songs with special guest conductor, Todd Peterson, a strong Christian and Choral Director at Barron Collier High School. Uniting in one accord, these students took part in a “big choir” experience, improved their vocal and ensemble techniques, shared in fellowship with students from other faith-based schools and used their unified voices to let us all hear a glimpse of God’s glory through their beautiful sound. Join us in praying that in years to come this may become an opportunity for all musicians (strings, band, and choir) to come together from our area Christian schools to experience the joy of making music with a larger ensemble and sharing the talents that God has given to our students.
