Race. Serve. Give.
Blue Ridge Christian School has become the school of choice in the Valley. Voted Best of Virginia for three consecutive years, the BRCS student body has grown by 50% in the last two years. For the 2023-24 school year, we will provide 470 Preschool-12th grade students with an education that is rooted in Christ, faithful in service, and joyful in learning.
In 2022, we paired the Great Community Give with our annual service day. Our students served at 24 locations throughout Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. It was such a success, and giving back meant so much to our students, that we are doing it again! On a day that our community gives to us, we will be giving back to our community!
Last year, donor support through the Great Community Give helped us double the size of our preschool facilities and supported our financial aid fund, which assists 35% of our families.
BRCS is growing! As we serve a record number of families, we are enriching all aspects of the BRCS experience – academics, the arts, athletics, and servant leadership development. Our goals include funding a portion of the Impact Tomorrow Today Campaign for Blue Ridge, which includes financial aid and the Bear Fund. The Bear Fund supports the continued enhancement of our academic and co-curricular programs which includes new academic tools to deepen learning such as technology, programming, and classroom updates.
Will you join the important work happening at BRCS and help us reach our goal of $100,000?
“Blessed are they who trust in the Lord and whose hope is in the Lord. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out roots by the stream … it never fails to bear fruit.”
