Two Campuses : : One Family

First Baptist School began the 2018-2019 school year by opening a new high school on James Island, South Carolina. Our new facility contains top-notch athletic facilities, state-of-the-art classrooms, dedicated space for the arts, and much more, all of which is located on 40 acres of land that borders a serene live oak forest. Because our James Island location is just a short drive from downtown Charleston, the faculty is able to immerse students in the best of Charleston’s history and culture while still providing a top-tier campus for academics and athletics. 


Our lower school and middle school, which house preschool through grade eight, are located in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. The South-of-Broad campus is just two blocks from the Battery, a short walk from the Dock Street Theater, and minutes from educational resources like the South Carolina Aquarium and Fort Sumter.  


Our two school campuses allow us to give students an unparalleled learning experience: students might practice creative writing beneath the live oaks of White Point Garden and then attend a basketball tournament hosted on our James Island campus later on the same day. Or, students might conduct a Biology lab experiment in our new high school and then explore the Holy City while learning how to create an iconic image in photography class.  


At the end of the day, our two campuses and faculties work in tandem, giving students some of the best athletic and academic experiences in the Lowcountry, while producing students who are engaged in their communities, churches, and families.

The James Island High School opened for the 2018-2019 year. Updates to our downtown campus began Fall 2019.  Learn more >>
