Preparation for the Future: Our students' future is important to everyone at FBCA.
- We aim to have a rigorous academic curriculum from a Christian perspective, believing one aids the other throughout each student's life. Our curriculum is challenging, yet with our small class-to-teacher ratio, we are able to help each student succeed. Generally, FBCA is a year ahead of most public school curriculum.
- Students who join FBCA grow academically, personally, spiritually and socially. Our students test higher than state and national average via the Iowa Assessment Testing. https://www.setontesting.com/product/iowa-assessments-form-e/
- FBCA is fully Recognized with the IL State Board of Education and our diplomas and transcripts are fully transferrable to public and private schools or universities.
