About First Baptist School of Laurel
First Baptist School, a ministry of First Baptist Church of Laurel, began in September of 1971 as an all-day day care program for the families of Laurel. Over the years it expanded to Kindergarten, Elementary Grades, and in 2000 the Middle School began with classes through the 8th Grade. In the spring of 2002, First Baptist School celebrated the first Middle School Graduation. Our alumni have excelled in both public and private high schools as well as higher education. Many alumni credit their years at First Baptist School for giving them not only the knowledge but the character to navigate an ever-changing world and society.
We exist to support Christian families in the education of their children. Our school ranges from Preschool 3 through 8th grade. First Baptist School of Laurel is also a Maryland State Approved Nonpublic School.
