First Baptist Church founded its Christian day school in 1979 by establishing a first grade which later grew until it had established classes through the 8th grade. A nursery school and kindergarten had begun in 1969 establishing a base for the subsequent grades. Today, the Academy ministers to over 400 students – three year old through the 12th grade.

The Academy, three year old through 8th grade, is an out-reach ministry to families in the greater Randolph area and surrounding communities. The purpose of its high school, however, is to disciple young believers as they grow to Christian maturity.

The Academy seeks to supplement, not supplant the parental role and its responsibility. Students are encouraged to appreciate both their Christian and American heritage of freedom and human dignity, a gift from God.

Self-discipline is fostered in students based on respect and reverence to God and all authority. The Academy seeks to teach and guide students into a relationship with Jesus Christ and submission to His authority in their lives.

Our generation is in desperate need of men who are pillars of purity and are not swayed by the wind of impurity that continue to increase. Pillars of Purity will be a place where men learn to encourage and support each other to walk as a man of purity.
