School Profile

Description

Berean Christian High School is a Christian school with a strong college preparatory program. We integrate biblical truths throughout our curriculum, and the Christian faith is clearly the focus for all courses. We are located in Walnut Creek, California, 25 miles east of San Francisco. We have served the East Bay Area since 1969 and have been located at the current Walnut Creek campus since 1985.
 
Curriculum
 
The curriculum is designed to prepare students to enter the college or university of their choice. The year is organized into two semesters; students are expected to carry a minimum of five classes each semester. School hours are typically from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM, after which athletics, activities and after-school programs begin. Because of block scheduling of classes, some days may end slightly earlier than others. In addition to the required classes, students may choose from a wide variety of electives.

We have found tremendous value associated with the use of this service which facilitates a secure link between parents and teachers, thus enabling a more cooperative relationship. Additionally, the school maintains a comprehensive web site as a tool of communication to all constituency.
