WHO WE ARE.
WHAT WE STAND FOR.
Warren County Christian School seeks to provide Biblically integrated instruction, experience, and a Christian example to all students, so they will graduate with an academic foundation, God-centered worldview, Christian perspective, and strength of character essential in their pursuit of a productive, mature and Godly life.
The Warren County Christian School began as a result of a small group of parents who wanted an alternative education for their children in 1977.
When the school started out, it housed just two teachers and 18 students, and held classes at the Saron Lutheran Church in Youngsville. Parents took on a large role by performing tasks such as bus drivers, janitors, cooks, and servers completely on a volunteer basis. They cleaned the classrooms every week, drove students to the local YMCA for gym classes and provided the first hot lunch program. Enrollment increased the following year so much so that they had to find new facilities to house the students. So, they moved to the old Meadowbrook Dairy building on Lookout Street in Warren. At the time, the school only offered grades K-through-8.
With more increases in enrollment in the upcoming years, the school made one final move in 1981 to the Garland Farms dairy barn in Youngsville. In 1982, WCCS held its first graduation with two seniors receiving diplomas. At the time the school’s enrollment was 106 students in grades K–through–12 and a staff of six teachers. It was also during that year that WCCS acquired its first principal and administrator, James Bodamer. Under his guidance and vision, the school grew to include 13 full-time instructors and three part-time specialists, a science lab facility, foreign language instruction, business courses, a computer instruction program, home economics, art, music, and an athletics program. At its greatest, WCCS had an enrollment of 175 students.
However, in recent years there has been a drastic decline in enrollment. We are currently home to about 50 students, 12 full-time instructors, and we currently offer all the above listed and more. We’ve added electives such as Envirothon, which has taken second place in their competitions for the past two years, Geology Club, Ensemble, Choir Chimes, Orchestra, Book Study, Drama, and much more. Our elementary students participate in a phonics program from grades K-through-3, penmanship, which includes cursive, and technology.
Throughout all of these changes and fluctuations our mission and our vision is still the same. We are here to honor Christ by providing quality education in a Christ-centered environment that will enable our students to experience a God ordained, abundant life. It is our vision to graduate young leaders who are trained and disciplined to think and work productively through wholesome relationships by integrating into the family of believers to impact their church, their community, and the world for Christ.
