Information about Lake Orion Baptist School
Lake Orion Baptist School began ministering to families in September 2002 and currently helps train a little over 100 students in grades K-12. The leadership and families of First Baptist Church of Lake Orion started the school because God burdened their hearts with the need for a fundamentally sound, Bible-believing, God-honoring Baptist school in this community.
Students at Lake Orion Baptist meet in the newly constructed, state-of-the-art educational wing of the church building. Sixteen well-equipped carpeted and air-conditioned classrooms provide students with an excellent learning environment. Facilities also include a full-sized gymnasium, a library, and a 14-workstation computer lab.

Senior Trip to Europe
Lake Orion Baptist seeks to culminate its senior class educational experience with a 10-day trip to Europe each year. Students have the opportunity to experience different cultures, meet people from all over the world, see historically important places about which they have studied, and in the process, gain a vision for sharing the gospel to a Christ-less world. The senior trip highlights a student’s high school career by building memories that will last a lifetime.
