We have been impressed with the Preschool and Lower School. The curriculum is individually-paced so each child feels both successful and challenged every day. The teachers genuinely care for each child and celebrate their unique gifts as they gently guide them to develop a love of learning. Our children have flourished here academically, spiritually and socially and we are so glad we chose The Bear Creek School.

In looking for a selective Christian school, I was amazed at the amount of positive recommendations and accolades from other parents. After attending the school a little less then a year now, I can clearly say this is the most organized and well run organization I''ve been involved with. The staff from teachers to admin run a tight ship on curriculum, agenda, goals, and accountability. They support the education and learning at each grade level combined with the K thru 12 program. We''re blessed to have found this school this early on and the teachers really strive to develop the best students possible. I would give the highest recommendation to others when considering The Bear Creek School.

My children are receiving an excellent education at Bear Creek. They have been attending since kindergarten and 1st grade and now are in 6th and 10th grade. The classical approach in a Christian environment is giving them an excellent foundation. The teachers truly care about the students and the overall sense of community is great.
