It is our firm belief that within such an environment we can best partner with you in providing an excellent education for your student.

  • -Students are encouraged to excel academically in an environment of support and accountability. Annually, BCS students average two grade levels or better above the national average on standardized tests and are regularly accepted into the most sought after college-preparatory high schools.
  • -We emphasize Christian character traits and work with parents to hold students accountable for their behavior, which will enable them to mature into young men and woman who are pleasing to God and good citizens to their community.
  • -We do not want to be merely a Christian school in name only, but we endeavor to put Jesus Christ at the center of all we do.  A biblical world view is integrated throughout the curriculum, and our students are encouraged to know Christ as their savior and grow deeper in their Christian faith.
