My child has attended the school for two years. I have had the opportunity to meet all of they teachers. They are very passionate about Christian education. The push students to achieve more. If I had to choose a school for my child, I would choose BCCS all over again.

Very disappointed in the education my child is getting for as much as I'm paying in tuition.

BCCS has been our family's school for 11 years now. Our oldest is in HS and was fully prepared academically, socially, and spiritually for the next step in her life. The teachers are excellent - they are the heart of the school. Parents' involvement in the school assures success for the students and an organization that works.

Great school! Highly educated teachers and a warm environment for learning. Preschool is accelerated so children are reading at ages 4 and 5!

Loved the preschool. If I didn't work and need daycare, I would still send my child to the preschool program.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
