Berean Christian High School has been an incredible school for my son. It has been a joy to watch him grow and learn in every aspect of his life. Berean's teachers are excellent educators that truly care about their students hearts and minds. Berean is a smaller school, but they offer an incredible range of sports and activities for students with diverse interests.

My daughter attendes Berean Christian High School. The school has been fantastic! The office staff is friendly and helpful, the teachers go above and beyond, the music and drama departments are out of this world, and the Christian atmosphere is great. Berean was the best choice we could have made for our daughter's high school years. So grateful for the wonderful principal, Dr. Noriega, who leads from a godly heart. Definitely a five-star school!Now, of course no school is perfect.Typically the people who say negative things about Berean are those with a problem with Christianity and its socially conservative values. If you can afford the tuition, sending your kids to Berean is a safe way to guide them in the Lord before they head off to college and are, for the first time in their lives, completely on their own "in the world."PS - Every year there is a fantastic all school retreat to kick off the new year. I went to the retreat as a Chaperone and saw first hand how wonderful the school is, very fun and an easy way to make new friends, and it shows the school's not just about academics but about building a relationship with God,

Dear laney,As a college- preparatory high school, Berean Christian High School is purposeful in training its students to become independent, critical thinkers. We believe that the learner should be equipped with sufficient information that allows them to analyze and develop their own worldview based on appropriate reasoning skills and their convictions. For this reason, we teach both philosophies of evolution and creation. Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Do you teach evolution or creationism? I need the answer to this question to evaluate your students' precollege preparation. Thank you. - Helene Langtry, M.A.
