Two Campuses, One Family
First Baptist School operates two campuses in Charleston, South Carolina. The James Island campus offers a new high school with top-notch athletic facilities, state-of-the-art classrooms, and dedicated space for the arts. The downtown Charleston campus houses the lower and middle schools, providing a state-of-the-art educational building. With these two campuses, students enjoy a unique learning experience, combining academics, athletics, and immersion in Charleston's rich history and culture. The school aims to produce engaged students who contribute to their communities, churches, and families.
PRESERVING THE PAST, SHAPING OUR FUTURE
DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON & JAMES ISLAND, SC
First Baptist School began the 2018-2019 school year by opening a new high school on James Island, South Carolina. The 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. Our new state of the art educational building was completed for the 2022-2023 school year. 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.
