The accreditation is just a faith based one and takes very little consideration to education other than fundamental Christians skewed world views

In one of the reviews, the person noted that Bible Center School is not accredited. The preschool, elementary school, and middle school have completed the rigorous process of accreditation and all three are now fully accredited by A.C.S.I., an outside accrediting agency.

I have my granddaughter in BCCS. Although the school is not accredited and the teachers are not State certified, the school is academically ahead of the public school in the area. In addition the school teaches compassion, manners and consideration unlike the public schools. The teachers truly care about you child.

The academics at BCCS are outstanding. There are a variety of extracurricular activities that are offered with highly qualified teachers/instructors. There is plenty of opportunities for parental involvement to be a part of your child's daily experience. We are so thankful for BCCS. We thank God everyday that that is where are kids are spending their day. Teachers and Staff that love the Lord and reinforce what the kids are learing at home - That's a number one priorty for us and what we get from Bible Center.

Bible Center is, hands down, (imho) the best elementary school in the Charleston area. Our daughter has gone there since pre-K and was reading happily before she started Kindergarden. Our son transferred there this year and, while we expected trouble adjusting, he was taken in wholeheartedly by the other students and loves it. The teachers are that exceptional mix of intellect, heart-felt caring, and plain old fun. This excellence comes from the top - Mr. Reynolds is a wonderful principal and his assistant, Mrs. Keefer, knows absolutely everything going on. This is a school where the kids learn and are also loved for who they are.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
