Bracken Christian School has a story to tell.
It all started in 1982. Betty Kight and a small group of people from Bulverde Baptist Church were inspired to establish a school where students could be equipped to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Though not affiliated with Bulverde Baptist Church, they named the school Bulverde Baptist Christian School.
In later years, through the generosity of Mr. Sam Bracken, the school gained a new location and a new name. In 1985, Bracken Christian School moved to its present location - 23 beautiful acres atop a hill overlooking a tree-filled residential valley below. Mr. Bracken donated the land and the buildings. The presence of the Holy Spirit is evident when one first sets foot on campus. Our school is located in the rapidly-growing community of Bulverde/Spring Branch and is sheltered in the midst of tall oak trees. Our campus retains the cozy feel of a country school.
One of the unique features of Bracken Christian School is the convenience our families have of a single campus for grades pre-kindergarden through twelfth grade. Many students find it comforting to know that a sibling is not far away and that there is frequent opportunity for contact. Older students support and encourage the younger children, who are delighted with the attention.
Class sizes are small and are led by teachers who have the rare combination of sterling credentials in their field and a love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many comment that Bracken is one of the few schools where they can synthesize the two in the classroom. Yet, it is this very fact that differentiates Bracken from the rest.
Looking forward, we are expectant that the Lord will continue to bless Bracken, as He has done so faithfully in the past. For its part, Bracken will remain focused on the provision of an education through the lens of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Gala that was held at Bracken Christian School this past weekend was in honor of the love and dedication of the Kight family, Knowlton family and Parham family as they have created a wonderful legacy. The special love we have for them as a Bracken family is above reproach, our heart overflows. God Bless You and we THANK you for your contributions.
