Briarwood Christian School provides excellence in education in a Christ-centered environment through impact-oriented leadership that will challenge and inspire the whole student, equipping each student to glorify God by responsible action in contemporary society.
Believing that all truth is a manifestation of God's sovereignty in creation, we desire to establish a school which in its ultimate purpose glorifies and reveals God.
Man, made in the image of God, is responsible to God in all things; therefore, his education must enable him to understand and use the created universe and to live by the precepts which He has established for Godly living.
Knowing that man has chosen to glorify himself and worship his own works rather than worship and glorify God, we understand that our students have a nature which hinders them from achieving the objectives which we have named.
However, knowing that the Lord, Himself, has provided a way for these children to reach their full potential through His payment for sin on the cross, we realize that each child here has a unique and valuable place in the plan of God and must be highly esteemed and respected.

School Reviews

This school is awesome for our children. Teachers and faculty that pray over your child as well as provide a wonderful education, that is why I pay for this education. Compared to other private schools in the area it is much bigger and that is one reason why I like it. My kids have all the opportunities of the larger public schools but they get to participate without having to be a 5 star athlete. The class sizes are not too big so your child is not just a number. The children respect the faculty which seems to be a growing issue with public schools and the parents are very involved (in a good way).
