- Thank you for your interest in First Baptist Christian School. FBCS is a dually accredited, state approved school for 1st - 12th grade. Since our doors opened for our first school year in 1989, God has blessed us with amazing growth. What began with just three teachers is now a growing school that offers students a quality education, sports and other activities all in a Christian setting. First Baptist also offers its parents and students a small school environment that means our teachers and staff are able to offer a personalized educational experience.
- FBCS is a dually accredited, state approved school and therefore we follow the Louisiana state standards for curriculum in grades 1-12. Our graduating seniors qualify for the TOPS Scholarship Program and FBCS participates in the State Transcript System for 9-12 grades.
- First Baptist Christian School strongly adheres to the belief that its purpose is to direct the educational experiences of its students while developing their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The school's desire is to move its students into active discipleship in a Christian congregation and to equip them to be effective witnesses in the community. We believe it is our responsibility to nurture the growth of students in the areas of academics, personal relationships, physical growth, and spiritual understanding.

We have been very pleased with this school. Our kids have been students for 5 years now and we feel they are currently receiving great instruction and challenging academics from Christian teachers who are very knowledgeable in their respective subjects. They have also enjoyed participating in the different sports the school offers. I love that they have a great support system in their leaders and their teachers regularly take the time to make sure they understand what is being taught.

I transferred my boys from another private school in Slidell two years ago and what a difference it has made in our lives! FBCS definitely challenges them academically, but also gives them a well-rounded experience so they enjoy school again. FBCS makes learning enjoyable and is up to date with technology allowing parents to communicate with teachers and keep up with their children's grades and other activities. I looked into all the private schools in Slidell and by far FBCS is the most impressive!!!

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
