About Us

Peggy Fedun

At Fredonia Hill Baptist Academy, we aim to produce well rounded students. The Bible tells us in Luke 2:52 that "Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and men." We strive to develop our students in the same way. Our school holds high academic standards and students work at a challenging pace. Students develop their bodies through our physical education program. Daily Bible teaching gives children a solid understanding of God's love for them. This will lead him to self-respect, self-confidence and self-expectation. Seeing himself as a beloved child of God that is committed and obligated to God's will and commandments, a child develops a sense of respect for others. Our school is able to accomplish this through a strong qualified faculty, the best curriculum, controlled classroom size and reliable testing.

For more than 40 years FHBA has provided rigorous and innovative Christian education in Nacogdoches. Our teachers are committed to helping students to succeed and flourish through small class size and traditional values. We emphasize the importance of a well-rounded education – one that embraces the academic, spiritual, social, physical and emotional elements of life.

The early school years provide the educational foundation students build upon for a lifetime! At FHBA, we understand how critical this foundation is to the students’ future success. As students build this educational foundation, our goal is that they also grow in the word of God and develop a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We invite you to tour our campus to see what a difference this superior educational environment can make in the life of your child!


Our History

Fredonia Hill Baptist Academy was established in 1972 to offer the community a top quality Christian preparatory school with the goal of producing students prepared to be successful in school and in life. Fredonia Hill Baptist Church chose Mrs. Branch Patton as principal. The school opened with fifty students and four teachers in pre-kindergarten through second grade. As the enrollment and community support grew, classes were added.

When Mrs. Patton resigned in 1980, she asked Mrs. Joe Harris, the second grade teacher, to assume the leadership role. As the school continued to grow, grades were added until we became a complete elementary school –pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. Classes in technology, physical education, music, and Spanish were also included in the curriculum. After serving the school for forty years, Mrs. Harris retired in 2012. Mrs. Harris chose Mrs. Fedun to assume the position as principal. Mrs. Fedun taught kindergarten for nine years at FHBA before taking the role as principal.

Today, with the support of our wonderful Parent Organization we are thrilled with the comfort, convenience, organization, and suitability of our recently re-modeled facilities.
