Thank you for inquiring about Bass Christian Elementary. Early application is highly encouraged.
We recognize that each child is unique, with special qualities and needs. Our goal is to help them each find their individual path to reaching their full potential. Accordingly, we subscribe to the Seventh-day Adventist church’s educational philosophy, which is based on a developmental approach to learning. It entails the assessment and class placement of each child through formal testing and observation, as well as letters of recommendation. Each child’s developmental (social, emotional, physical, and academic) and chronological ages are considered
Recognizing that all mankind are children of God, BCE will admit students of any race, color, or ethnic origin. Bass Christian Elementary is open to students of good moral character who respect the rights and property of others, who are willing to wholeheartedly observe all regulations of the school, and who are committed to faithful completion of academic requirements. All pupils are expected to use language befitting a follower of Christ.

Partnering for Eternity
BCE, in partnership with Southern Adventist University’s PFE grant program, has the opportunity to offer unique tuition assistance to our students. Through this service-oriented scholarship program, our participating students are paired with elderly adults in our community in a mutually-beneficial way.
Students in the PFE program, along with their parents, bring joy to the lives of senior citizens through fun activities such as visiting, reading, and playing games. When appropriate, they may also provide light housework. As the young people build generational bridges and learn the value of service, they also benefit from the wisdom and mentorship of the older adults. In the process, their time together helps finance the student’s Christian education.
