  • Banner Christian School serves Christian families in our community as they train up their children in the way they should go.
  • Our goal is to unify the training a child receives at home and their local church by providing a school where Christ is preeminent and education is rooted in the Word of God.
  • Accomplishing this task requires a dedicated staff with a Kingdom vision.
  • God has blessed Banner with a staff of well-qualified, Christian teachers.
  • Each teacher is a born-again believer with a proven testimony of faith. In addition, each teacher is a college graduate and teaches within his/her field of knowledge.
  • Banner Christian School is a place where teachers teach, students learn, parents are happy, and God is magnified.
