The Brazos Christian Difference
What is it about BCS that makes it unique? What defines a school’s impact and presence in the community? What is it that makes BCS different? Simply put, it is our college preparatory academic program with classical elements; the instruction from a Biblical worldview at our center; and our Christian school community.
A College Preparatory, Christian Education
At Brazos Christian we believe that the best preparation for our students is an education that develops the skills to think critically, reason effectively, and communicate clearly and persuasively. Our use of classical methods and approach focuses on the natural stages of a child’s development, teaching in accord with the principles of the trivium, a time-tested approach which emphasizes the fundamentals of the basic disciplines, including Latin and writing.
Because we employ classical methods, we place importance on the process of learning truth, understanding truth, and communicating truth. We include instruction in Latin, encourage the development of the whole person, recognize the importance of the context of the human story in God's story, and are intentionally cross-curricular, making connections between subjects. We focus on a thematic approach in Grammar School, and a humanities approach in Logic and Rhetoric Schools that integrates the study of history, literature, and the Bible, while also incorporating strong STEM components. Taught from a Christian perspective, this approach encourages students to blend all their knowledge of the great ideas and events of the past into one coherent understanding of their world.
Brazos Christian graduates have an excellent track record in college admissions, and are currently in residence at some of the best schools.
A Christian Worldview
A Christian worldview assumes the centrality of Christ in all of life. Thus, Brazos Christian is a Christ-centered school, seeking to impart a Biblical perspective. Through a focused emphasis on integrating the Christian faith in all our disciplines, we desire to inspire our students to possess a heart for God as well as a mind for truth.
A well-developed Biblical worldview combined in this way with a proven college preparatory program will enable our students to think in authentically Christian ways about their values, their beliefs, and their place in our culture. They will be able to respond with love and truth as they make decisions for their futures. We challenge them to become well-informed, winsome Christians with a commitment to life-long learning and a willingness to speak to the culture from a Christ-centered heart.
An Inviting and Vibrant Community
“Opportunity” and “participation” are the words that describe the Brazos Christian community. On any given day at Brazos Christian School you will find parents serving hot lunch, carpooling for an athletic game or field trip, decorating for a special event, helping a teacher with a classroom project. This high level of parent participation has built, and sustains, a strong foundation for the Brazos Christian community.
Our school community provides a safe, nurturing, and inviting environment where students and families can learn, explore, and grow in their understanding of God, the world, and themselves.
Current Parent Testimonials
The comments below were provided by current Brazos Christian School families as to why THEY love being a part of this special school! We hope you enjoy reading through these encouraging comments.
The reason why Brazos Christian, for me, is pretty simple. It is one thing to get a great education. It's another thing entirely to get an education that completely lines up with the same Christ-centered values and beliefs that we frame our lives around at home, at church, and with other believers. I know my children that go here are loved, I know they are valued, and I know they are spiritually fed daily from a community of teachers that put Christ first in their lives. As an employee, it's a great feeling knowing you are coming to a place where you have others you can rely on as professionals and accountability partners.

"The smaller class sizes create more one-on-one interaction between the teachers and students. We love the focus on individual attention to every student’s strengths and needs."
Mom of Kindergartener and 2nd Grader
I love that the priority of the school is to lead my children closer to Jesus. I love having all of my children on one campus. I love that my children can play multiple sports in Jr. High and High school. I love that the class sizes are small and that my children can easily access their teachers for help when needed. I love that my high schoolers have been challenged and learned valuable study skills that will serve them well as they further their education in college. I love that my children’s faith has been deepened while attending school at BCS. I love that BCS isn’t protecting my children from the world, they are preparing them for the world. My husband and I couldn’t be more thankful for Brazos Christian School.

"Brazos Christian has an amazing education. Our kiddos are known and loved and every single day they are surrounded by prayer, love, scripture, and pointed to Jesus."
Mom of Kindergartener and 6th Grader
Ultimately, it’s a way to put GOD first in your children’s lives. Just as we all desire quality products and possessions, Brazos Christian is a quality school with quality families and you’re children will be surrounded with good quality people. Like minded people who have similar beliefs as you do. The beliefs like GOD comes first, and we should honor him in all that we do. We should strive in all that we do and do it as if we are doing it for The Lord whether it be academics, sports or just life in general. Our school has a warm family culture, not the stereotypical snobby culture as some believe private schools have. Many of the teachers and staff are nothing less than incredible. We love Brazos Christian School and it’s families. GOD bless Brazos Christian School!
