Byron Center Christian in an excellent school, academically and spiritually. We fully recommend it to anyone interested. The teachers and staff are clearly working toward same goal of "providing for children of the Christian community an excellent education, rooted in God s Word, preparing them for lifelong service in God s Kingdom". There is no place we would rather send our kids to than BCCS!

We love BCCS! It has outstanding teachers and administrators who are fully dedicated to helping children develop their whole selves - academically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally. We wholeheartedly recommend this school.

I am an alumni of Byron Center Christian and have found that the same values, morals, and perspective are still as they were 17 years ago. That being said, they are always advancing their technologies and teaching practices but to see that they still hold true to the founding belief that the school is based upon is an awesome thing to witness. I love being involved in the school and listening to my children pray before, during, and after school or singing in chapels.

The teachers at Byron Center Christian School truly love each child that has been entrusted to them in their classroom and feel they have been called by God to this vocation. When you think about the fact that they spend at least as much (if not more!) time with your child on a daily basis, what could be more important? I love how intentionally Christian the artwork, memory work, songs, and curriculum are - like my friend said the other day, "when you walk down the halls of school, you can just feel the Holy Spirit at work." What an awesome picture.

Hands down this is the best school i have seen. I have three kids (each attended). The speed and love in which the teachers perform is outstanding.

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.
