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 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.

A Word from the Administrator To Piedmont Students


Dear Piedmont Students,

Doing what God wants us to do is not always easy. Actually, we are in a daily battle with Satan who is constantly tempting us to NOT do what God asks of us.

Can we win this battle against Satan? Of course we can—BUT only if we are prepared to win the battle. How do we prepare? How do we fight against the temptations that we are faced with?  Ephesians 6:13 states, “Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.”

I am grateful that God is faithful through His Word in giving us the instructions we need to “suit up” to face life’s challenges. I am also grateful that we at Piedmont can guide you, God’s children, in being ready for those fiery darts that are hurled your way.

My Precious Students, IF you work hard while here at Piedmont, when you graduate from high school and venture out into the real world, you will be ready for what lies ahead.  We are striving to educate you for eternity!

I praise God that I have been blessed to serve Him by serving you! I love you, pray for you, and look forward to witnessing your fulfillment of God’s plan for your life.


In His Service,

M.S. Badertscher
