Chapel & Bible

FBTA seeks to excel the most in providing an environment that will foster strong Christian character. Our one standard is Jesus Christ. Our aim is not just to equip our students with training and tools for a successful career, but for a successful life centered firmly on the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible and prayer are central to the school day in every classroom. Chapel services expose students to the regular preaching of God’s Word. A focus on world missions is emphasized and high standards of goodness, truth, decency and good manners are encouraged in each student. Dress is modest and is regulated by way of uniforms.
