Welcome to First Baptist School : : Christian Education in Charleston, South Carolina

Since 1949, First Baptist School has provided students in the Lowcountry with the best Christian school education in Charleston, SC, and we are proud to continue this tradition of excellence during our 70th year of operations.


As your family considers which school is the right fit, I would ask you to look at what makes First Baptist School different. We are a school committed to providing a top-quality, Christ-centered education for students in grades K2-12 to meet the challenges of a changing world, while holding to a strong Christian worldview. Our entire faculty and staff are devoted to teaching the whole child and allowing them to grow in the specific talents that God has given them. We work daily to ensure that we are developing servant leaders from within our student body so that they may better serve their families and communities. Our goal each day is to strive for a standard of biblical excellence so that we can better partner with and serve our families in a way that truly honors God and His word. 


God has richly blessed us at First Baptist School, with a historic downtown campus for grades K-8, as well as a state of the art campus facility for our high school located on James Island. The differences mentioned above that we celebrate at First Baptist School and our two campus locations have allowed us to experience significant interest in the 2020-21 school year. We are committed to small class sizes, so to ensure your spot for the upcoming school year, it is important that you apply today!


We hope that you will come and experience the First Baptist School difference first hand!


God Bless and Go Canes!
