HISTORY

Front Range Baptist Academy began in September of 1985 as a ministry of Front Range Baptist Church. The academy started its first year with two full-time teachers and seventeen students under pastoral guide. With income from gifts and tuition, the academy finished the year with all bills paid. The academy added a music program, band, and an athletic program in its fourth year. By 1991, the academy held its first high school graduation, which included two seniors. The construction of the educational building was begun the following year, and enrollment was 102 students. The K4 class was added in 1993 with an enrollment of fourteen students. The enrollment overall has grown through the years, including the current enrollment of 151 students. Through the years, our athletic teams have also won various state championships and tournaments.
