WHY CHOOSE A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL?
Briarcrest is a Christian school with a Christian worldview. As such, we believe strongly that the Christian education offered at Briarcrest helps prepare your child spiritually for college and for life. Christian families make up the great majority of our enrollment, but we are also excited about the opportunity to minister to a child whose family is not Christian. An important part of our mission is that we are focused on both evangelism and discipleship
Our Christian faith is integrated throughout all of our programs and courses of study as part of our Christian worldview. As an outreach of our Christian mission and philosophy, we have a great community service program. We also sponsor mission trips, both at home and abroad, that minister to people’s needs and provide opportunities to share God’s love
From kindergarten through twelfth grade, your child will spend about 16,000 hours in the classroom. Where do you want your child to spend that time? Do you want all of your child’s teachers to have the same values and belief system that you do? Do you want biblical principles to be incorporated into your child’s curriculum? Do you want your child to pray and be led in prayer? There is no such thing as a “value neutral” education. Gordon Clark, a Christian philosopher and theologian, said, “The school system that ignores God teaches its pupils to ignore God.”
Briarcrest offers a balanced, affordable, high-quality Christian education that meets the needs of students and parents alike. Our college preparatory academic program is one of the finest in the Mid-South. In 2012, our graduates were offered over $11,000,000 in scholarships. We are preparing our students for college and for life. We appreciate you helping spread the word about the value of a Briarcrest Christian School education to your friends and family.
