Dear Families

As a reminder, we have been tackling the topic of ACCOUNTABILITY as a campus, where we will be encouraging our students and staff to practice healthy measures and steps of walking through life together in truth and in love. We will be highlighting examples throughout the month and bridge further understanding to this important topic through our chapels, small groups, and day to day classes. We encourage you to join us in these conversations of accountability with your kids as we explore this important trait at school.


See below for important information pertaining to our school. We have much to celebrate here as a community!


Here is a quote to ponder as we wrap up January this week:


“When we genuinely believe that inner transformation is God's work and not ours, we can put to rest our passion to set others straight.”” - Richard Foster


May we see and enjoy God's presence around us today.


Grace and peace,


Skyler Sikes

Brazosport Christian School

We are a campus seeking to lead the way in education as we follow the way of Jesus. Every student is treated with value and worth, as each child of God is found with, and is provided ample opportunity to discover their giftings, master their practices and skills, and become a Christ-like, contributing member of society who walks in and carries the presence of Christ with them in all things.
