Letter from Superintendent

Mr. Gus Martin
6255 Cahaba Valley Rd
Birmingham, AL 35242

Thank you for taking the time to explore the Briarwood Christian School website. We are so very thankful that you are prayerfully considering investing in the partnership of a Christian Education as you raise your children to be godly adults. 

Our school can best be described as Christ-centered, well-rounded, and having excellent standards. Our Early Childhood – 12th grade programs offer a robust suite of rigorous subject offerings, AP and Dual Enrollment options, award-winning fine arts, highly competitive athletics, and all of which are grounded in a solid Biblical worldview.

We believe that a sound Christian Education is the most valuable investment any parent may ever make for their children and their family. In a world of shifting morals, students are constantly being bombarded with worldviews that do not reflect correct Biblical truths. While the “world” does not always see the direct benefit of a Christ-centered education, at BCS, we do. Shaping successful academic students who are morally sound young men and women is important to us, and they should understand the TRUTH that provides the basis for these morals. 

We desire to instill a strong biblical worldview as we send students into an ever-changing world.

BCS is more than just a 75-acre lower school campus and 88-acre upper school campus with 6 decades of educational excellence. BCS is a family that strives to develop students who seek after truth, live a life pleasing to God, and excel in every facet of life. This is accomplished daily through a highly educated and loving staff, who deploy academically rigorous instruction, in a morally sound classroom environment. Our deep desire is to know your child and help maximize their academic, artistic,  and athletic God-given potential.

We acknowledge that making a decision of this nature can be very difficult. Once you set foot on our campus, the warm and welcoming environment will make this decision much easier. While we all know that education is essential for growth, education without a strong moral foundation will never bring true joy or long-lasting success. Our BCS graduates have proven time and again that they are well-prepared for college and beyond. 

If you feel that God is calling your family to be a part of this exciting opportunity to grow academically, spiritually and through co-curricular activities with us at BCS, please do not hesitate to reach out for more information. We look forward to the opportunity to be a blessing to you and your entire family.
