Our 2 boys started at BCS in Kindergarten. They are now in 7th grade (junior high) and 4th grade (Three Points). We are overwhelmed with how positive our experience has been here. The Christian foundation they are learning here is unprecedented. The care and commitment the teachers take in knowing each of the kids and mentoring them at every stage is humbling. We feel honored to have our kids educated at this school and are committed to giving back in the community of BCS as much as we feel like the community has offered us. We feel like we have a true family here. Thank you for all that you are doing for our kids!

Both of our daughters attended Bellevue Christian and received a strong spiritual foundation combined with excellent academics. The older daughter is a practicing physician doing a fellowship in endocrinology and is deeply engaged with her church in Los Angeles. Our younger daughter did a gap year with Youth With A Mission before studying computer science and is now working as a developer with Facebook in New York. My wife and I are deeply grateful to all Bellevue Christian has meant to our family and recommend it to anyone who considers private Christian education for their children.

We have 2 children attending BCS. We are very happy with the faith teaching, academic rigor, and attention to our children's individual gifting. The teachers, staff and parent community are all invested in who they are and who they will become. Our experience has been wonderful at BCS.
