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.

  • 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.

  • FBCA is a member of the Illinois Association of Christian Schools: and has partnered with the Association of Christian Schools International for staff training.
