West Side Christian School

  • West Side Christian School was established in 1985 as a ministry of West Side Baptist Church to assist our families in the total education of their children.
  • All of the curriculum at WSCS is Christian in orientation, and/or in harmony with Christian values and beliefs.
  • We rely heavily on the ABeka & Bob Jones University (BJU) curriculum, as well as selected materials that have been approved by the administration.
  • The educational philosophy of West Side Christian School is based on a God-centered view that all truth is God's truth, and that the Bible is the inspired and the only infallible authoritative Word of God which contains this truth.
  • God created all things and sustains all things.  Because man is a sinner by nature, he can only glorify God by choosing God's free gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
  • America was founded on Christian principles and has prospered because of God's intervention.
  • Our aim socially is to provide a Christian perspective on the total world view from which will come a balanced personality and a proper understanding and acceptance of a person's role in life at home, at work, at play, and at worship- all grounded in the Christian concept of love.
  • The spiritual must permeate all areas - else we become textbook oriented rather than student oriented.
  • The mission of West Side Christian School is to teach a Christian world view in spiritual and community life, inspire and equip students to reach their potential in academics, and to help develop a well balanced member of society.
