Barstow Christian School began in the fall of 1963
as a small preschool ministry at Barstow Free
Methodist Church. The preschool grew, and parents
soon requested other programs to be added.
The school now serves Pre-K through 8th Grade
As a ministry of Barstow Free Methodist Church,
the school exists to honor the Lord Jesus Christ
while meeting academic, spiritual, and social needs
of students. The school operates from a nondenominational
and non-sectarian perspective. The school upholds biblical Christianity and bringing good news to the poor, avoiding non-essential beliefs that often divide rather than unify Christians of various denominations.
With a desire to meet each child’s needs holistically,
we provide a positive educational program
in a safe and loving environment where parents
can entrust their children. Our goal is to prepare
students for the intellectual, social, spiritual, and
moral challenges of the 21st century.
A major emphasis at BCS is the development of
personal character. Students learn to responsibly
apply moral and ethical principles within a variety
of settings. The school has a strict discipline plan
that holds students responsible for their own choices
