The First Baptist lower school, located in downtown Charleston, integrates Christian worldview with academic excellence. The integration of faith and learning enables our faculty to teach a robust, preparatory curriculum that also nurtures each student’s spiritual life. This nutriment is further developed through weekly chapel where students come together to learn, worship, and pray. 


We also boast some of the best teachers in the Lowcountry, and our faculty has created a continuous curriculum that seamlessly transitions from one grade level to the next. By using a variety of teaching strategies, hands-on activities, and age-appropriate technology, our faculty ensures that each student’s academic needs are met.


Our academic curriculum is also supplemented with instruction in Spanish, art, music, dance, physical education, and more. Our liberal arts approach to education ensures that our students are exposed to both arts and athletics, which develops fully rounded students.


Thank you for your interest in the lower school, and I invite you to contact our Director of Admissions to arrange a campus visit.

Lower & Middle School Principal
