Letter to Parents Interested in First Baptist School
Thank you for expressing interest in First Baptist School.Since 1949, we have provided a unique educational experience for students from across the Charleston area in a safe Christian environment.The faculty and staff are committed to providing the best in academics and extracurricular activities while working in partnership with our families to prepare students for extraordinary lives.
First Baptist School is known for these qualities:our nurturing environment, our affordable fees, and our successful students.We consider ourselves a family, and while with us, students are encouraged and educated by caring certified teachers.Small class sizes give students the latitude to explore new ideas, challenge themselves academically and grow with confidence.Our parents are involved in meaningful ways, and teachers communicate with parents regularly.(Visit the “RENWEB” link on our website for examples.)
The founding mission of First Baptist is to provide academic excellence with a Christian perspective at an affordable rate.We remain committed to keeping our tuition reasonable so that our doors are open to a diverse range of families from across the Charleston community.
Our students’ successes speak for themselves.All First Baptist graduates attend college.Over the past five years, our students secured over $11 million in academic, athletic, and fine arts scholarships to some of the finest institutions in the country.Students are involved in a wide variety of activities and athletics with the guidance of enthusiastic and supportive mentors.
Situated in the historic district, First Baptist offers the distinctive combination of a charming campus and modern programming.We have adopted a long range plan that focuses on positive growth.We have added two year pre-kindergarten class to our lower school.We are committed to integrating technology into all aspects of learning.We purchased smart boards and portable computer labs to be used in classrooms throughout the school.And we provide professional development for our teachers to integrate using these tools effectively.
