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 building. PCS officially opened on August 31, 1970 with 31 students in first through seventh grades. In the years that followed, growth was experienced, and by 1975, kindergarten through twelfth grades were offered.
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 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.
