We welcome your family to Countryside Christian School. Our prayer is that your student and family will be blessed by the time and resources invested here. Countryside offers a Biblically based education. This is evident in our world view, our materials, and our methodology, all of which are designed to develop independence in your child’s learning and strong moral character for life.
In addition to the character values on which our school is built, we can help students avoid negative elements which may be present in other environments. We will encourage the positive values of respect for authority and for the property of others, and personal responsibility. This is effective life training, which is the most important aspect of education. Our school incorporates the benefits of individualized curriculum, academic diagnosis, individual attention, and goal setting to produce graduates who are not only successful in their chosen pursuits, but who have also gained wisdom in living a life which is pleasing to God.
Christian education doesn’t cost—it pays! True dividends will be realized when parents work together with the school in the areas of academics, building and enhancing character, and setting high behavioral standards. We welcome you to this very worthy endeavor as we work together to train and educate your child.
The Mission of Countryside Christian School is to provide a high-quality, Christ-centered education to every child that enrolls. Countryside Christian School is founded on the principle that the education of our children is a mandate God gave to parents and not the government. Learn more…
