Countryside Christian School

  • Countryside was founded in 1974 by Pastor Gene Keith. Countryside Christian School is a private, non-profit, church-school.
  • Our school was founded on the belief that God gives the responsibility of teaching and training of children to the parents and the church, not the government.
  • The mission of Countryside Christian School is to provide a high-quality, Christ-centered educational alternative to Christian parents who believe that God had entrusted them with the responsibility of educating their child rather than the government.
