At Bayview Christian School, our motto is "soaring to excellence" and that is what we strive for academically in all classes, preschool through 12th grade. We use proven, biblically-based Christian curriculum, and uphold a standard of academic excellence. BCS is one of the top educational institutions on the Eastern Shore. With 85% of all graduates going on to college, BCS carries a reputation of excellence in Christian education. Our roots trace back to a strong foundation upon God’s Word as well as traditional education. From pre-school up we begin our children in the fundamentals of learning and build upon a strong, Christian curriculum.

We use the A Beka Book curriculum at Bayview Christian School. Three decades ago, God raised up A Beka Book to provide Christian schools with God-honoring, high-quality textbooks and teaching aids to help each school fulfill the goal of its ministry. The hundreds of traditional Christian educational materials developed by A Beka Book have been developed and refined over a period of 50 years in the classrooms of Pensacola Christian Academy. Christian schools throughout the nation recognize that A Beka Book sets the standard of excellence in the publishing of textbooks and other materials for Christian schools.
The A Beka Book approach to Christian education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable. The materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practicality. Their skilled researchers and writers do not paraphrase progressive education textbooks and add Biblical principles; they do primary research in every subject and look at the subject from God's point of view. Of course, the most original source is always the Word of God, the only foundation for true scholarship in any area of human endeavor. Thus their publications are built upon the firm foundation of Scriptural truth and are written by dedicated and talented Christian scholars who are well grounded in the practical aspects of classroom teaching. For excellence for your Christian school, you can trust A Beka Book.
The Bayview Christian School meets the requirements set forth by the State of Delaware for graduation from high school.
Bayview Christian School offers a college preparatory course leading to graduation in the twelfth grade. In addition to state requirements (22 credits), every student must earn one credit per year in Biblical training.
Students must follow the course of study for their grade level as outlined in their class schedule. This ensures that each student attains as much as possible academically while at Bayview and eliminates problems of meeting graduation requirements during the senior year.
2 Diploma Options:
Bayview Christian School desires for every high school student to develop to their fullest potential academically. We encourage students to look beyond the minimum requirements for graduation and take a bigger challenge. One way we do this is to offer three diploma programs: College Prep and Advanced College Prep.
The BCS standards exceed the minimum state requirements. Therefore, meeting the BCS requirements will earn students a College Prep Diploma. In rare situations, the administrator may make an exception that meets the state standard but does not meet the BCS standard. In those cases, the student will receive a General Diploma. Honors and Advanced Honors as well as GPA honors will be distinguished at Graduation.
