About us

head

Baker View Christian School provides a safe and enriched environment in which students can thrive and discover the joy of being life-long learners, active thinkers, develop positive attitudes, and learn to work together as a community. Students are given the opportunity to explore, discover, and apply concepts in the real world. We embrace the philosopy that all students can learn, and together with teachers, can strive for academic excellence.

Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to serve as partners with parents providing a Christ-centered education of academic excellence for each child.

The BVCS Family exists to TEACH children about Jesus, NURTURE their love for Him and others, MENTOR them to think, and EMPOWER them to serve.

Our Philosophy

BVCS earnestly seeks to provide a spiritually-based, well-rounded education for children.  A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in our philosophy.  We respect His divine authority and recognize His loving involvement in human affairs.  We believe that a Christian education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come.  To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:Develop a personal relationship with God and care for people as stated in Matthew 22:37-39
Master the basic academic skills
Value labor – both physical and mental – as a benefit to God, others and self
Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessings God intended.
BVCS is locally-operated, with the benefit of guidance and direction from the Office of Education (Seventh-day Adventist Church), which oversees over 6,000 schools world-wide with the advantage of over 150 years of academic leadership.
