JENNIFER STEEN: Our oldest son had been in a Christian school in Tampa prior to our move to Lafayette, and we wanted that to continue. We heard about First Baptist Christian School and it was an instant fit. The teachers and staff made the move to a new school easy for all of us. Now our three children are in eighth grade, fifth grade, and pre-K4. God has surely opened doors and blessed us with our FBCS family. We have all met friends that have impacted our lives. The environment at FBCS is conducive to sharing and growing together. My children have said more than once that they love the fact that they learn about God and His love for us at school, and that they wish that everyone could. They are growing in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and with man. FBCS has a wonderful curriculum, but what is most dear to my heart is that our children have a pride in where they go to school, in whom they represent, and in what it means to be a follower of Christ.
BETH HALL: We moved to Lafayette just prior to the start of the school year. As we searched for schools online, we were excited to find FBCS. After wonderful phone conversations, a school tour, and testing, we enrolled Nathan, our 7th grade son. We had peace that FBCS was the right school for him. But as the first day of school approached, nerves kicked in for all of us. Nathan would be walking unfamiliar hallways and into new classrooms, with new teachers, and new kids. As any parents would, we spent the whole first day of school wondering about his day. Was he having a good day? Were the kids nice? Did he feel welcomed? When I picked him up from school on that first day, he jumped into the car and immediately said, “I loved it! The kids treated me like they have known me my whole life!” FBCS has strong academics and excellent Bible teaching, but as a new family, feeling accepted and welcome made FBCS feel like home.
PRINCETON LEWIS: Our family has had the privilege of calling FBCS our home for almost two years now and it has been nothing short of amazing. During our search for a school we were looking for a place where the boys could grow into young men, be instilled with Christian doctrine, and excel academically. Not only did FBCS meet our expectations, they also provided us with a family of caring teachers, staff, and student body that would embrace our family and welcome us with open arms. Stellar academics coupled with competitive sporting programs like basketball and track and field made our experience at FBCS first class. When I first visited FBCS in search of a school the one thing that left an impression upon me was the painting on the wall of Proverbs 22:6 ‘Train up a child in the way that he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.’ We are truly blessed that we are able to call the FBCS community our family.
HANNAH VICE: My daughter, Lilly, started Pre-K3 in August. Since the first day, FBCS has exceeded my expectations. Lilly has been blessed with a wonderful teacher and classmates. She has learned so much in such a short time. The biggest blessing is hearing her talk about the love of Jesus. The faculty has continued to instill this knowledge and understanding in her heart. We are looking forward to the years ahead at First Baptist Christian School!
REBECCA VENTRE: As a former student, I am so thankful for a school like FBCS. It has a warm, loving atmosphere with excellent academics and teachers. I like the student/teacher ratio and the attentive and involved administration. It is a joy watching my daughter with her new friends, and it is a blessing to see her excited about school. We are happy to be a part of the FBCS family.
