Race. Serve. Give

Blue Ridge Christian School’s enrollment has increased each year, growing from 143 students in 2012 to over 420 students for the 2022-2023 school year. Our biblically integrated program focuses on excellent academics and thoughtful Christian discipleship.

This year, we are pairing the Great Community Give with our annual service day.  While our community gives to us, we will be giving back to our community!

The Need: BRCS is growing!  We will enroll over 420 Preschool-12th grade students this fall.  As we serve a record number of families, we will enrich all aspects of the BRCS experience – academics, the arts, athletics, and servant leadership development.  Our goals include a master site plan for our expanding campus, an expanded preschool village (with two additional buildings) and courtyard, targeted technology investments, and increased scholarship funding.  

The momentum at BRCS is undeniable. Will you be part of it and help us reach our goal of $80,000?

1.The Great Community Give, an initiative of The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County,  is a sunrise to sunset giving day event that promotes charitable giving to support nonprofit organizations in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.

BRCS has a Power Hour from 12:00-1:00 only on April 20. This is an opportunity to win up tp $6000 for the school for having the most money raised. 

Matching Gift! A generous donor is matching the Power Hour donations up to $10,000! 

How: Power Hour must be given online at this site: https://www.greatcommunitygive.org/organizations/blue-ridge-christian-school

NOTE — Early giving of cash, check or BRCS website giving can begin April 6. This will count toward all event totals (another prize!) but not toward the power hour.

2. Service Day involves the entire PK – High School student body. Students and teachers will spend a portion of the day blessing our community by serving at various local organizations.

3. Race/ Stand-up is when our PK-8 students walk/jog/run for a designated period of time on the BRCS outdoor “track”.  Our high school students participate in “Stand Up for Education”.  Led by the Student Government Association, high schoolers will join in organized games, activities and competitions, with a catch:  they need to stand the entire time!  

Race. Serve. Give. not only benefit our school financially, it also strengthens the sense of  fellowship at BRCS.  Our students eagerly anticipate this special day in the life of our school, and lasting memories are created through their shared service in our community.
