Beirut Baptist School
Providing Quality Inclusive Education
As an inclusive school committed to rigorous, relevant and holistic education, BBS cultivates and inspires diverse learners in mind, body and spirit to become responsible citizens and successful lifelong learners. Its vision is to see empowered learners and educators think creatively, reason critically and proactively engaged in their community guided by ethical and spiritual values.
A Lighthouse in the Heart of Beirut
The Beirut Baptist School is an academic institution that takes its 1,300 students from Msaytbeh and the surrounding area beyond the boundaries of a classroom and onto a 15-year life-transforming journey. Known to its community as a lighthouse of peace, truth and academic excellence, the school is cognizant of its mission that extends beyond academia. BBS invests in young Lebanese world changers whose everyday academic endeavors are based on Biblical truths. In order to best position learners for a successful professional future, a wide range of academic programs are offered at BBS. The primary program being used is currently the Lebanese Baccalaureate, which is authorized and accredited by the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education, enabling learners to enroll at a university of their choice in Lebanon and abroad.
Lebanon is no stranger to strife, violence, and senseless political conflict, which is exactly why a school in Msaytbeh has the potential to impact its community by modeling inclusion and a passionate commitment to its community. The school’s motto is “the truth will set you free” because every morning educators and administrative staff are on a mission to instill biblical character traits in every learner. Cognitive and intellectual efforts alone do not transform communities. Along with its partners and friends, BBS invests in learners’ holistic well-being by offering three critical support programs: group & individual counseling programs, the Afterschool Key Program, and the SMART program. Through breaking barriers of stigma and cultural pressure, the counseling program is free of charge for BBS learners. Many of the students go back to difficult living environments every day, which has prompted the management team to open its doors beyond school hours for learners and their parents to have a place to do homework or receive special tutoring. In addition, the SMART program makes it possible for learners with individualized behavioral challenges to be included in the classroom with their peers.

The start of school is like New Year’s Day for educators: there
is something invigorating, and hopeful ushered in by the beginning of a new academic year.
“I recently received several calls from my children’s school and did not answer. I wanted to avoid embarrassment in case they were calling about my children’s tuition payments. When I didn’t answer they ended up sending me a message via email describing the actual purpose of their calls: they had a gift for all families. Today, when I opened it, I was surprised by the content of that gift.”
While the compounding crises in Lebanon have impacted virtually everyone in society, there is another—less noticed—group that has been significantly affected by the nation’s crises: Lebanon’s teachers.
