Purpose and Philosophy


There are five major pillars that govern everything we do.

First, we desire a warm, spiritual atmosphere for our student body. For this purpose, BCS is not considered an evangelistic ministry of Bethel Baptist Church. We desire a strong environment where Christian young people, along with their fellow classmates, may learn and internalize a Biblical worldview.

Second, BCS strives for academic excellence in preparation for life. BCS believes in a traditional  educational methodology that  emphasizes the basics in building an academic foundation. Students are challenged to work independently and to think for themselves as they build convictions that will stand under the pressures of our modern culture.

Third, BCS places a strong emphasis on the arts. We want our young people to hone their skills in speech and music. Growing in these areas will enable the young people to use their talents to serve their local churches to the glory of God.

Fourth, BCS is committed to developing character in young people through a strong, consistent, and loving discipline program. All rules and regulations are established on the basis of Biblical conviction in order for the school to function more orderly. Any breach of these guidelines will be dealt with lovingly, but firmly. We sincerely believe loving, firm discipline will help young people develop good character that will enable them to be more useful tools in the Lord's service.

Fifth, it is our desire to maintain an interscholastic athletic program that will be God honoring. "Winning at any cost" is not the philosophy of BCS. Young people must exhibit proper attitudes and maintain certain academic standards to participate.
