FBCC CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Coming Fall 2021
First Baptist Church of Castroville is excited to announce that the FBCC Christian Academy plans to open in Fall 2021 as a ministry of the church and to provide the premier place for K4-5th grade Christian education in the area.
The Academy is planned to serve K4 through 5th grade.
An Open House will occur in early 2021 with a registration deadline in April to finalize what grades will be offered during the first year.
The Mission of FBCC Christian Academy is to provide a God-centered learning environment where children will feel safe and loved. This is a place where children can grow intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically, allowing them to become the Christian leaders of tomorrow.
FBCC Christian Academy offers grades K4-5th grade. Cutoff birth date for admission into K4 and Kinder is September 1.
FBCC uses the Abeka Curriculum that meets or exceeds the state-mandated common core. All subjects are taught from a biblical world view, and with Scripture and biblical principles used to teach and illustrate concepts.

MORE ABOUT TUITION
Tuition is payable in advance. Parents must pay for the entire month and payment in full is due by the first Monday of the month. Payments are considered late on the 3rd working day after the due date. A fee of $5.00 will be assessed for each day payments are received late.
To receive the Member fee, the parent must have been a member of First Baptist Church of Castroville through baptism, statement or transfer of letter from another Baptist church for a year before the first day of school. The membership is based on the official Church Clerk membership roll. If the parent’s membership reaches the one-year mark at the beginning of the second semester, the child will receive the Member Fee rate. You may refer to the church bylaws on the church website for more information about church membership.
Tuition is based on facility and staffing that we must have available in order to care properly for your child. Therefore, if your child does not attend for any reason, tuition is NOT reduced. No reduction is given for unexpected closings, holidays, severe weather closings, absences, vacations, or domestic problems.
FBCC Christian Academy follows the Medina Valley ISD school calendar.
