McDonald Meets FBCA's High Expectations for its Grads 

It is the mission of Fort Bend Christian Academy to equip students to thrive spiritually, academically, socially and physically. FBCA has high expectations for its graduates, especially “lifers” who have attended the school from pre-k through senior year. These leaders exemplify what it means to have obtained a well-rounded, college-prep Christian education. Jared McDonald, class of 2018, is the portrait of an FBCA graduate.

He’s earned Academic All-State twice, and he participates in many other school organizations.

Jared is a member of National Honor Society, Rho Kappa and FBCA Young Life. He’s played multiple sports including basketball and track and field. He has attended mission trips to Miami, North Carolina and Costa Rica as part of FBCA’s Eagle Week. He’s even made time to donate blood on multiple occasions.

“I’ve loved being a part of the FBCA family, making friendships that will last the rest of my life,” Jared said. “I’ve also really appreciated having a great relationship with each of my teachers because it has allowed me to succeed in the classroom.”

McDonald's older brother, Andrew, is an FBCA alumnus, and his younger brother Aidan is sophomore at FBCA.

“We decided early on that we wanted the boys to go to a school that would come alongside us in teaching them the tools they would need not only for academic success, but also for the spiritual development of their personal relationship with Jesus,” Deanna, Jared’s mother said. “The world they are living is very antagonistic to Christians, and FBCA has helped to equip them as God's warriors with His belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shield of faith, helmet of salvation and sword of the Spirit. FBCA has nurtured our boys to become grounded men of faith. Their international trips with Student Leadership University and Eagle Week have given them a global vision for their call to service and protection of those in need. We are excited to see Jared do battle on the Division One football field at Davidson next year, but are even more excited to see him be God's champion in this world that so desperately needs Jesus.”
