Develop Minds, Build Faith, Be Disciples
"We chose BMS for our family because we believed then and still believe today it is the best choice for our children’s education. BMS has the most amazing staff and teachers, all working together to achieve the mission of BMS. We were new to BMS and didn’t really know anyone when we sent our oldest child to 2nd grade; now 9 yrs later, all 4 of our children are attending and the BMS “community” is one of the things that makes it special."
Phil & Lori Weaver, parents of Chantal (11th), Angelina (9th), Isabella (6th), & Brantley (2nd)
"We have gained amazing things by having our daughters at BMS. Not only were they academically challenged, but their souls were fed, the small class sizes allowed them to make friends with everyone, not just a small group of people, and the teachers and staff are just incredible supports in so many ways. We truly feel that BMS has become a family and a place we will continue to support long after our children have graduated."
William Henson & Allison Fisher-Henson, parents of Anney (class of 2020) and Emilee, (12th grade)
"I don’t really know how much different of a person I would have become had I not gone to BMS. But maybe that is the testimony of BMS’ impact. That I don’t have to wonder what I would have been like, had I not attended BMS. Instead, my parents made a commitment to send me, and my 3 siblings, to BMS, a place that reinforced the beliefs and disciplines that we were taught at home. It was impossible for me at that time to realize and to appreciate the sacrifice my parents made to give us a education with a Christian foundation. Now as a parent I realize those things. Our oldest son Declan is enrolled in the 3-year-old class that comes 2 times a week here. And a few weeks ago, as I wrote out a check for his tuition, I realized that this is the beginning of many checks that will be written over the next 23 years.
So why choose a place like BMS to educate our children? I’m not naive enough to believe that if we send our kids here, they’ll be protected from all the “bad” things that kids have to deal with at public school. For me it's that Biblical foundation that is woven into everything that is done here. So, we know that the things being taught in the classroom are consistent with scripture, we know that discipline will be handled in a Biblical manner, that the standard to which students will be held is the standard Christ calls us too. These are the reasons we choose a place like BMS.
We might choose BMS for the smaller classroom sizes, that allow for more individualized instruction. This setting that allows for students to explore and grow in their giftings. That’s what BMS did for me. I’m the kind of person that disappears in large crowds. But in a place like BMS I was given opportunities to grow and exercise my leadership abilities. I also had teachers who encouraged those things they saw in me. Those are the ways BMS impacted who I became."
