It’s More Than Just a Classroom
At BCS, the junior high years invite students into an exciting time of exploration. We encourage students to dive into a wide variety of new endeavors and take risks — even if it means failing! We support students to build strong relationships and develop lasting connections, while also taking a deep dive into some of life's big questions, expanding their academic potential, and strengthening their Biblical foundation.
What Makes The BCS Junior High Experience Unique?
We truly believe that junior high wasn't intended to simply be endured. It should be a safe, fun place where kids can share, learn, and continue to discover their identity in the Lord. These quintessential Junior High experiences are longstanding annual landmarks in BCS history that sets us apart and gives your child the opportunity to solidify lifelong friendships and learn crucial life skills.
Junior High Retreat happens near the start of the school year. The event is designed to be a day of class unity and fun. Each year, students leave school to go off-site to a state park or other location to play games, enjoy a meal together and connect as a class.
2: State Trip
This memorable trip started in the 1980s by a BCS teacher. State Trip is a
week-long, student-planned experience that highlights six regions in our
state. Over the course of the week, they learn valuable life lessons working alongside classmates. Many alumni say State Trip was a turning point in connecting with their class and forging life-long friendships.
At Bellevue Christian, what are commonly referred to as “electives,” we call exploratories. These classes are designed to give students the opportunity to experiment and explore with a subject outside of traditional classes that could spark a lifelong interest. They include engineering and design, student council, technology, band, choir, robotics, fitness, foods, woodshop, Spanish and French.
4: The Rising Tide Award
Our Junior High Rising Tide awards involve 7th- & 8th-grade students nominating their peers for actions and influence in the areas of kindness, service and impact. We always look forward to seeing how God moves in and through students' lives in their journey at Bellevue Christian!
