Why start a new school?
We often get asked, why start a new school in Bemidji. The answer is simple, “Why not?” Bemidji is growing and there is room for more Christian schools, just like we have several churches. Another reason is that our public schools and charter schools have more and more issues every year. The staff does the best they possibly can. However, our society is pushing for things to be taught that many don’t agree with. So people are looking for options. We are following God’s leadership to open a school we feel will be pleasing to him. Every school will not meet everyone’s needs. KBCS is set up to meet the needs of children who want to learn about God through service and community connections. We want kids to learn to be the hands and feet of Christ.
