  • Why Doesn't BCS Exclude Non-Christians?

    We are occasionally asked if Briarcrest is a covenant school. We are not. For those who may not be familiar with the term “covenant school”, it is one that, by policy, will only enroll children who come from a Christian family, which is usually defined as a family in which at least one parent is a professing Christian.

Briarcrest & Common Core

Briarcrest Christian School will not adopt Common Core in its entirety.  There are, however, elements of Common Core that align with current Briarcrest curricula.  Therefore, you will begin to see some Common Core standards/references in instructional materials.  Given that ACT and other college entrance exams are developed using Common Core standards, we want to ensure that our students are properly prepared for these tests.  All curricular decisions and implementation will be based on the mission of Briarcrest Christian School.
