Thank you for choosing to become part of the FBA family where every child is viewed as a special gift from God entrusted to our care.
We recognize each child is created with a unique personality and purpose. Our dedicated teachers provide an active, learner-centered environment where every child is engaged and challenged to grow academically, spiritually and physically.

Life, Learning and Leadership Lessons
Growing a School Garden
Students will learn about the Spiritual Discipline of Stewardship as they care for, maintain, and harvest plants. They will also learn of the benefits of growing a garden, and will learn how to use natural pesticides, worm castings, and Organic soil.
Students will learn about Plant Life Cycles in south Florida. Students will also learn about soil preparation, planting, watering, composting, and harvesting. Students will investigate what plants grow well in south Florida through experimentation.
Students will gain personal satisfaction that comes from the personal investment of time, effort, energy, and “sweat equity” needed to sustain a high yield school garden. In Genesis, God tasked mankind with the Stewardship of His creation.
FBA students will experience the joy and reward that results from diligence of “working with their hands”.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
“FBA is all about life, learning, and leadership. Our teachers really care about us and show us what true leadership looks like. We’re also given many opportunities to be leaders for the younger grades and be mentored by the older students. The experience is different from the other school I’ve gone to. I think it’s because our teachers not only want to see us thrive academically, they also have compassion for everything we’re walking through.”
