School Notes

  • Berean Christian School exists in partnership with parents and the local church to empower students to walk as Jesus walked, enrich students with academics enveloped in a Biblically-based Christian world view, and help students experience their God-given and unique giftedness for success in the future.
  • Berean Christian School takes every child`s spiritual development seriously. We believe that the mandate for education is given to parents, and we see our role as a partner with the home in teaching children to love and serve God. A student`s education may last a lifetime, but their relationship with God matters for eternity! So, our faculty and staff desire to help BCS students to know God in a deep way and to develop a passion for Christ as they prepare themselves for success now and in the future.
  • Bulldog Athletics has a goal of providing an increasing level of competition and professionalism at all levels of sport through quality instruction and Christian principles.Berean Christian School currently offers 26 interscholastic athletic teams for students in grades five through twelve, and intramural programs for younger students.  Athletics play a vital role in the social and character development of each student.  Understanding we have been created to be in relationship with one another, Bulldog athletics seeks to reinforce important characteristics such as teamwork, selflessness, hard work, and self-control.
