First Baptist School of Charleston

First Baptist School of Charleston is a high-expectations community. The team works collaboratively and cheerfully, conscious of the trust that parents place in them.

First Baptist School was originally established in 1949 as an educational ministry of the First Baptist Church. Establishing a K2 to 12th-grade school gave the church an opportunity to positively affect the lives of students and families across the Lowcountry. With a strong biblical foundation, First Baptist School provides a caring learning environment with an academically rigorous curriculum centered around a Christian worldview:

  • The educational program is grounded in Christian teachings and is presented from a Christian perspective.  

  • The development of the “whole child” is emphasized as physical, mental, social, and spiritual growth are nurtured. 

  • Four fundamental, life-long relationships are developed: to God, to one’s self, to others, and to one’s environment. The development of these relationships is incorporated in the teaching and application of the curriculum.

Charleston is ranked by many prominent polls as the number one destination city in the United States. Charleston is an urbane, edgy, innovative, diverse, dynamic city of 800,000 with spectacular scenic vistas. With an eclectic and enterprising arts scene, including the signature Spoleto festival in the spring, diverse entertainment and sports venues, and restaurants that put Charleston at the forefront of nouveau cuisine, the “Holy City” offers a remarkable blend of the avant-garde and historic.
