Principal Rick Niswonger

Thank you for your interest in Brethren Christian Junior & Senior High School (BC). The school is a non-profit, non-denominational, college preparatory Christian School established in 1947. In 1999, the school became the only independent, non-denominational, evangelical Christian Junior High & High School in Orange County. The school's nearly 325 students actively participate in 126 different churches across 30 different Southern California communities.

BC is known for the outstanding achievement of its students in academics, the arts and athletics. I invite you to give me a call to arrange an appointment to come and see them in action.

This website also gives you a glimpse into the Brethren Christian community - This combination of excellence in academics and a close knit family of parents, students and staff is what makes BC so exceptional.

We know how critical these years are in the life of your child. It's the time when their character is developed and tested by the ideas, opinions, worldview and friendships that surround them. At Brethren Christian, your student will be guided by Godly teachers who are experts in their fields. Most importantly, your faith, values and standards will be upheld by the entire school family, laying a firm foundation that will sustain your student throughout his or her life.

Located in a quiet Huntington Beach residential neighborhood two miles from the beach, BC students also enjoy a variety of fun activities that compliment the vibrant spiritual and rigorous academic environment.

You should know that Brethren Christian offers a generous financial aid program, so if you feel the Lord leading you to BC, please let us know how we can help. I would welcome the opportunity to talk more with you about BC and your family.

In His Service,

Principal Rick Niswonger
