History of BCS
In 1973, Calvary Baptist Church founded Bloomsburg Christian School with the purpose of providing a Christ-centered education to help parents of Calvary Baptist and parents of the greater Bloomsburg area who share its view of education. On the first day of school there were 21 students. In 1976, our first graduates went out to pursue their callings. Since then 80% of our graduates have gone on to higher education in both public and private colleges.
The school has been blessed by God for over 41 years. The first year BCS shared the facilities of the Church. Then for the next 10 years the school also used a building that it purchased on Old Berwick Road.
In the spring of 1985, BCS was moved to a building adjacent to Calvary Baptist Church. This enabled the entire school to be housed in one location. During the summer of 1986, an addition was constructed to this building allowing the school to expand once again.
In the summer of 1995, Calvary Baptist Church and Bloomsburg Christian School relocated to a spacious 30-acre campus with a 35,000 square foot building with adjacent sports facilities. This additional space enabled the school to utilize 18 full-sized classrooms, expand the computer lab, enlarge the science lab, provide a separate home economics room, allow for a 300-seat lunchroom, and accommodate a growing library.
