Our goal is to glorify God by equipping students to fulfill their lifelong calling as we educate them with an academically excellent classical Christian curriculum.
We strive to nourish their minds and souls on truth, beauty, and goodness; building on the foundation of the Word of God and the classical liberal arts.
At Bayshore Christian, our foundational worldview is the unchangeable Word of God, the Bible.
We recognize God as the God of truth, who has revealed Himself to us through His Word, His creation, and His Son, Jesus Christ.
At Bayshore, this means that all of our subjects are taught within the light of God's revelation.
Our mission is to graduate students with a Biblical worldview who will inspire, impact, and serve their communities. Our students will be critical thinkers who are academically and spiritually prepared for college and their life`s calling. They will be defenders of the Christian faith and able to exquisitely articulate that defense. They will be lovers of whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and virtuous.
