Christian Education in James Island, SC
Welcome to the of website for the First Baptist School of Charleston. The website is a teaser, designed to pique your interest in the school and inspire a visit to our campuses downtown and on James Island. A visit to campus affords you the opportunity to observe the stimulating reality of the claims that we make on this site. A visit allows you to collect and later reflect on useful images of the physical plant, discourse in classrooms, engagement of students, and instructional quality. I expect that you will be refreshed by the enthusiasm, candor, and courtesy of students as well as the passion and dedication of teachers. From both groups, you are likely to deduce that teachers and students have strong relationships, an essential constituent of an education that lasts a lifetime. Size indeed matters. FBS is large enough to expose students to classmates with diverse outlooks and backgrounds but small enough to ensure that all students are known and respected. The culture of the school integrates academic substance, social propriety, and spiritual nourishment. Faith is addressed as an inevitable perspective that naturally emerges from a reasoned approach to knowledge.
First Baptist School is faithful to the vision of its founders, who created the school as a Mission of the church at a price that would be affordable to a broad cross section of Charleston and its environs.
I look forward to meeting you and discussing the multiple opportunities for adolescents to grow into solid thinkers, conscientious citizens, and honorable people, ready for the challenges of higher education.
