Admissions

Schedule and Appointment

Schedule

The admissions procedure begins with a time to come and meet with either Mr. Scott Cain, the elementary administrator, or Dr. Charlie Graves, the secondary administrator. Elementary is K3 through the 5th grade and the secondary is 6th grade through the 12th grade.

Realizing that attending FBS is a privilege and not a right, an interview with the administrator is required of each student along with their parent or guardian. The purpose is to present the school’s philosophy and to give the parent/guardian a better understanding of the basis for Christian education. Students enrolling in grades 6th through 12th are also required to meet with our senior pastor, who also serves as the superintendent of the school. We also require a reference form from the student’s pastor.

Shadowing

During the school year, we encourage your son or daughter to attend school for a day, oftentimes called shadowing. We will place a classmate with your child for the day. Shadowing gives new students an opportunity to familiarize themselves with our students, staff and the classroom environment at our school.

Forms

General academic screening tests are administered for all students entering First Baptist School from the 2nd grade through the 12th grade. These tests determine the student’s achievement level. Admission is not complete until all the necessary forms including transcripts from the previous school verify their academic status.
