“We were looking for an incredible school experience for our sons. This is exactly what we have found at Brethren Christian! Our oldest son graduated from Brethren and is now a sophomore at Pepperdine University taking a heavy science load. He says he was very well prepared at Brethren to compete academically for his future. Our other 2 sons are currently enrolled at Brethren and taking advantage of all Brethren has to offer academically, spiritually as well as through their sports and drama programs. When asked what they appreciate most about Brethren they say the way the teachers push you academically and truly seem to care about your success in their class as well as your future. Our family is truly blessed to have found Brethren Christian and the Warrior family!”

“When looking for a school for my three children I wanted not only a Christian environment but also a school with a strong academic program. I found both in Brethren Christian. I have been very pleased with all aspects of the school. My children have been involved in many of the co-curricular activities including sports, band, student council, school clubs and choir.”

“Brethren Christian is a top-notch school! We spent a lot of time comparing between the various Christian schools in the area and found BC to be the best in many categories. Academically, BC rates higher in SAT scores and percentage of college attendance following HS. The AP pass rate surpasses the competitors. Spiritually, BC differs from the others in that its stated goal is to minister to Christian families, which makes it relatively free of the issues that plague many other Christian schools. The fine arts programs compete with the large public schools and win – In 2010: MACY Childress Award for drama; Fullerton College Jazz Festival winner in the advanced division for Band. The athletic teams are competitive in league and often advance to CIF. Though my kids have friends at the other Christian schools, they wouldn't want to be anywhere but Brethren Christian. We love BC!”

“We have had children at this school for 13 years. It has been an amazing experience for all three of our children. The teachers and staff have a genuine interest in the well-being of our kids. The education they receive exceeds what they would be getting in the local public schools. Each of our kids has enjoyed being involved in many of the sports programs. In a larger school they may have spent more time on the 'bench', but here they got to shine on the field or court. Brethren Christian HS continues to be a very positive influence on our family. “

“We have received so much from the Brethren Family – so many have acted so well on our behalf - the girls have received so much from you, contributions, talents and gifts we could never have provided ourselves. Your examples will forever be part of our lives. We trust that as they grow and are called to act in their own lives that they will always have you in their hearts and minds. We are thankful for all the little things that mean so much - we will forever cherish them!”

“This school has been perfect for my kids. Its great for sports, music, drama, faith, and so much more. There is a warm, loving environment that is hard to explain unless you're there to feel it for yourself--beyond words. Its wonderful to see such a supportive environment, and I'm very pleased with the academics. The school has one of the highest SAT averages, and students go on to top colleges after BCHS...so much more to say...but check it out if you wonder why so many people speak highly of BC! “

“I have three children at Brethren Christian and could not be more pleased with each of their experiences. Each of them has been able to explore a completely different path and develop into a well-rounded individual. I hear people complain about the idea of paying tuition, but I believe that it is crucial to build a good foundation. There can be a very high cost to "free". God is faithful to honor our efforts to raise up Godly children. This school is a great help to parents in doing just that! I love that the teachers and other families reinforce the beliefs and values that our family holds dear.”

“BC has an amazing principal who leads a team of teachers who show up every day because they love the children and want to be there to make a difference in EVERY child s life. Since we are not a musically inclined family AT ALL, we were hesitant about entering a school that might be more geared to those highly interested in band, drama and the arts but that was not the case at all! Not only can the kids try out any of those programs as a complete beginner if they want to, but they also enjoy going to the performances to hang out and watch their friends. Our child is excelling academically actually LEARNING the information in a calm, organized and supportive environment. (No silly homework assigned just for the sake of having homework). We came from a school that offered more of a religion-based curriculum, so we were a bit nervous about a stronger biblical based program. It s been a blessing. Not only does our middle school child LOVE Bible class, but is learning that it is more important to walk the walk as opposed to just talking the talk and learning rote memorization from teachers who don t practice what they preach. This school is the best-kept secret in Huntington Beach!”

“I am a 7th grade student at Brethren and I'm telling you it's the best school ever! The events and overall days at school are the most fun I've ever had in a school. The teachers are very caring and nice. Brethren is challenging but I love it anyway. There is a wide range of electives so you can never get bored. I'm in band, wood shop, and student council right now. Brethren encourages me to try these things. It is the best school ever!!!”

“I love BCHS! I am a Christian Homeschool Mom and very particular where my son was to attend high school. Brethren Christian is a safe and Godly place for my son to learn. The students are encouraging to each other and participate in school and activities without the pressure of social clicks. The teachers are outstanding. They always show God’s love to the students. They try anyway they can to help the kids succeed in their classes, at the same time holding them to higher standards in life and learning. This truly is a College Prep School with the added bonus of being Blessed by God. The size of the school is just right for class sizes not being too large. Most sports are accessible to all. It's great to have your child be able to play on a team sport, unlike larger schools where there are too many students to try out for each team. The families are all involved on their kids lives and are a wonderful bunch to be around. I can not say enough about this school. It is great! Next year I will be sending my 2nd son there. :) “

“I wanted to reiterate what a blessing BCHS has been to our family. The culture you have nurtured is unlike any I have seen in a school ... public or private. The kids are so kind to each other in a very genuine way; and, the opportunities to pursue passions of all types (Musical, Mechanical, Academic, Athletic, etc.) are fantastic.”

“This is the first year that my daughter has looked forward to going to school every single day. For the first time, she is being challenged academically, and she loves that. She is surrounded by other kids who share one main common interest...Jesus' love. So thank you for helping to provide a great foundation to sculpt her into a beautiful/joyful person.”

“Brethren Christian Junior & Senior High School is an awesome school. My daughter is a Sophomore and my son is in 7th grade. Brethren provides a solid Christian education while also providing challenging academic courses. Not only are my children receiving a top education, they have the opportunity to audition to participate in any of Brethren's Award winning band programs, including their traditional Wind Symphony and Jazz Bands. Additionally, my kids are very active in sports and are typically able to participate in any sport they choose. Our principal is totally committed to Brethren. He is very approachable and knows most students by name. He attends most activities at our school including at least one game of every sport (girls, boys, Junior High, JV and Varsity) and most band performances. The staff at Brethren is exceptional too. Their top priority is giving our children a strong spiritual base and education which will help them make good choices the rest of their lives. I strongly recommend Brethren Christian Junior & Senior High School! “

“Brethren is one of those rare schools where the teachers and staff really love your student, pray for them and want them to excel. Students can be in the band, in sports and achieve academically. The school is small but offers class options only found in larger schools. Class size is small too. The kids make friends quickly and parents do too.”

“I just wanted to take a few minutes to recognize the incredible work of your After School Homework Program staff -- I would not be exaggerating by saying that they have changed our lives. Everything has changed since he has been in the homework program at Brethren. He gets the majority of his homework done in school within one hour. He stays focused. He is 99% more confident and independent. He is getting organized. His self-esteem is growing. They have not only had an impact on our family in the present, but a lasting impact on our son. We feel blessed, Thank you so much.”
