School Notes

  • We adopt a God-centered view of life - wisdom and knowledge are centered in God, rather than in man. Therefore, our goal is to develop godly characteristics in students based on Biblical morals and values. At the same time, we provide an environment and a program that encourages each child to develop to his/her maximum potential. Cornerstone Community Church started Billings Christian School in August, 1981 with 42 students. At that time, the church and school were located at 1116 Grand Avenue. Traditional classes were held for grades kindergarten through the third grade during the first year. Because of requests for additional grades, an individualized program was approved for grades four through ten for the second year of the school`s history. By the third year, 118 students were enrolled in grades K-12 in traditional classes. In 1987, the church and school relocated to its present site on nearly 11 acres of land. The school became its own 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization on October 26, 2006. The corporation is known as Billings Christian School and is non-denominational. The tax exempt corporation is governed by an independent Board of Directors who represent a cross section of evangelical churches from the greater Billings area. The corporation leases space from Cornerstone Community Church in order to provide facilities for its K-12 instructional programs. The Schools engage actively in fund raising endeavors. The highlight of the fund raising activity is the annual spring banquet and auction. Keynote speakers in the past for this event include Tim Tebow, Bobby Bowden, Dave Dravecky, A.C. Green, Kurt Warner, Oliver North, Michael Reagan & Andy Andrews. In January 2005, the Big Sky Youth Education Foundation was established to create endowments, generate funds for special projects, and provide scholarships for students.

School Reviews

My experiences at this school helped shape who I am today. Due to the Small teacher to student ratio, I was able to get extra help when needed. I also played Volleyball and Basketball at BCS. I played on the varsity squad, made first team all state, and had several great coaches to further my skills, which led to playing collegiate sports. Once again I cannot say enough about the teachers and faculty there. They are caring, dedicated, and highly educated. I highly recommend this school
