For Future Generations - Bayshore Christian School

Bayshore Christian School has reached a milestone in our development. Through God’s provision, the Bayshore Christian School Foundation has purchased and owns, 46 prime acres off County Road 13 in Daphne.

BCS intends to build facilities on this land, enabling the move of the Logic and Rhetoric Schools to the new campus by the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year.

Bayshore’s mission is to graduate students with a biblical worldview who will inspire, impact, and serve their communities. Our students will be critical thinkers who are academically and spiritually prepared for college and their life’s calling. They will be defenders of the Christian faith and able to exquisitely articulate that defense. They will be lovers of whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and virtuous.

Planting the Seeds

In 2002, a group of Christians on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay saw something missing in their children’s education. These families of Eastern Shore Presbyterian Church (ESPC) had a collective vision of what Christian education could be, to educate children with a Christian world view. The school has expanded and grown into a school with a clear purpose, “to glorify God by equipping students to fulfill their lifelong calling as we educate them with an academically excellent classical Christian curriculum.” Beginning with one Kindergarten class of 20 students, the school has grown to more than 440 students in grades Pre-K through 12th grade.
Classical Christian education is an educational category which establishes a biblical worldview (called Paideia) by incorporating ancient methods of student development. It includes the cultivation of the seven Christian Virtues, training student reasoning through the Trivium (Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric), and interacting with the historical Great Books.

Our Story

Location

Bayshore Christian School has reached a milestone in our development. Through God’s provision, the Bayshore Christian School Foundation has purchased and owns, debt free, 46 prime acres off County Road 13 in Daphne. BCS intends to build facilities on this land, enabling the move of the Logic and Rhetoric Schools to the new campus by the beginning of the school year, August 2023. The new campus will initially provide space for 324 7th-12th graders.
Today, BCS need partners who will roll up their sleeves and plunge their shovels into the ground as we trust God together to guide and provide for his glory, praise, and honor in this place.

The Need

Space for Academics

To offer classical Christian Education to more families in Mobile and Baldwin counties we desire to expand each grade level to three sections of 18 students each, totaling a capacity for 726 students. The academic space will house art, music, and science facilities along with state of the art classrooms that are conducive to interactive classroom discussions.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Athletics

Space for Athletics

Athletics at BCS are more than physical activity; they are a vital part of challenging our students spiritually, mentally, and physically, by teaching life principles that will help them live productive and responsible lives. Currently BCS has limited upper school sports facilities which are shared with the grammar school. We have outgrown our present gymnasium and soccer field. Most sports must seek offcampus practice and game locations. Having our own sports facilities on-site will give students a sense of unity and pride and will create new opportunities to lead by example.

2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

Space for Worship and Fine Arts  

BCS students join together in corporate worship each week during chapel. We desire a space large enough to accommodate 400 students gathered together in Christian community.
We are created in the image of God. Experiencing and developing the God-given talents in fine arts nourishes our students’ souls. Impressionable students need to contemplate and appreciate beautiful words, music, movement, and art. In addition, spaces are needed where students can gather in larger groups for lunch, group activities, and interactive learning.

Ephesians 5:19 Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart.

ACADEMIC BUILDING

Growth requires commitment to provide thoughtful planning for the future. Our intended floor plan for academic classrooms and site plan has been reviewed by parents, teachers, staff and other interested stakeholders. The design has been developed using the services of Volkert Engineering and the architectural firm of McKee and Associates. Both companies have extensive experience in school design and construction.
