Student Life

Discover what it’s like to be a student at Ballard Christian School.

Between the years of 1993 until my graduation in 1999, I learned many valuable lessons about having a personal relationship with and unwavering commitment to the Lord. Numerous men and women, including teachers, guest speakers for chapel, and my friends’ parents, became mentors that would forever stamp my heart with solid convictions in my spiritual walk with God.

Safety and Security

Keeping our students safe is very important to us.  We have 24/7 surveillance on our school property.  The front entrances of each building is equipped with video monitor preventing unidentified people from entering.

Physical education is a required course for high school students.  It is also taught in elementary and middle school.  We believe it is important to stress physical activity to the students to maintain good health.

It is the desire of Ballard Christian School to develop Christian character within the hearts and actions of our students.
