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.
