Our History

In 1970, a group of men from local area churches had a vision of establishing a Christian school in the Bumpass community. Bethany Christian Church was selected as the location for the school, due to the fact that Bethany had just added nine classrooms and two restrooms to their property. PCS officially opened on August 31, 1970 with 31 students in first through seventh grades. By 1975, continual growth resulted in a full kindergarten through twelfth grade school.

God has been faithful in supplying our needs. Bethany built the first brick building in 1973, and the second brick building quickly followed in 1974. The multipurpose building now housing the gym was constructed in 1987. In 1989, PCS received a donation for a playground, and Bethany members provided the installation. Upon a Piedmont student's death, the parents donated the gym bleachers. On June 1, 2003, PCS became a ministry of Bethany Christian Church so that future building plans could incorporate both church and school needs. 

We want to have a greater impact for Christ and His Kingdom in our community. We will not know this side of Heaven how the men and women serving Piedmont Christian School have influenced the lives of the students they have supported. You are invited to share in that vision with us. 




What an exciting time of year! We are working on the last few months of 2017/2018 and seeing the progress of our students really come to life. All of our hard work in and out of the classroom is resulting in changed lives- academically and spiritually. We have laughed, cried, celebrated and struggled together, keeping IN STeP with the Spirit and each other.

But even as we are closing one school year, we have been busy preparing for the next. With new administration comes change. This school year was not just a time of observation, but one of casting vision for the future. Deep investigations have helped us make some serious changes in purpose, applications and finances. All of the handbooks and policies have been updated. Staff and families have been interviewed for input in what will take Piedmont from being a good school to being a great school. There is a bright future ahead for us all.

As you search for an educational institution that will be the right place for your child, we invite you to take a look at Piedmont Christian School. Come visit our campus, sit in on classes, and talk to our staff and students. It's okay to want a school that shares your values and your faith. It's okay to want a school that challenges your children to do their best and be their best. We hope we can be that place for your family. It's what we've been preparing for! Give us a call!
