First Baptist School's James Island Campus Provides Creative Outdoor Learning

Updated: Dec 12, 2019

Through this blog series, we'll be highlighting First Baptist School's C.R.E.A.T.E. (Christ Reveals, Educates, & Affirms Through the Environment) program. Come out and learn more about the program during the C.R.E.A.T.E. Expo on Friday, October 11th, before the homecoming game!

When First Baptist School's high school moved on to its own campus on James Island in 2018, it provided not only new facilities, but also a new outdoor learning space in the 62-acres surrounding the campus. The land has created a place for teachers and students to experience an enhanced outdoor learning environment where all curriculum can be taught using new methods, facilities, and activities.

The C.R.E.A.T.E. program will provide a certified schoolyard wildlife habitat, hands-on educational adventure for all grade levels and subjects, and collaborative "creation" by students, teachers, parents, and the community. During the first Club Day, students participated in building a split-rail fence at the entrance of the BCL trail. These hands-on projects will continue throughout the year, giving students a chance to create discovery trails, demonstration stations, and unique teaching facilities.

Please join us before the Varsity Football game on October 11, 2019 at 6:45 pm for the C.R.E.A.T.E. Expo! You'll have the opportunity to explore the BCL Trail and demonstrations will take place throughout the first quarter of the football game.

If you're interested in getting involved with the C.R.E.A.T.E. program, please contact the High School office!
