In addition to academics and spiritual discipleship, community service is also something we place a great deal of focus on here at Berean Christian School. We believe that it is important for our students to realize the level of impact they can have on their community by simply giving back.
One way that Berean students serve other members of our community is our annual peanut butter drive and toiletry drive for the Richard Yoakley Center. Our students collect peanut butter and assorted toiletries so that the students of Richard Yoakley can enjoy them throughout the summer when school is not in session.
Another opportunity for Berean students to give back is on the bi-annual junior/senior trip our high school students take. While some focus of this trip is the cultural experience it offers, it also has a mission component so that our students can experience giving back to communities outside their own.
In addition to organized community service projects, there are many individual opportunities for Berean students to serve the community. Past projects include Operation Christmas Child as well as the chance to support local area food pantries and other nonprofits.
We strive to provide our students with a Christ-centered, Biblically-integrated education which equips them to impact their world for Christ and we believe service should be part of that.
