A Brief History

Blue Ridge Christian School was founded to provide an alternative educational choice for families wanting a solid academic education with a biblical worldview.  Our more than 1200 graduates serve as business leaders, ministry servants, healthcare professionals, educators, technical careers, and more.  Our Alumni are a great representation of the influence that Blue Ridge has had on the community and the world. 

50 Years




New Campus

Blue Ridge celebrated a relocation to south Kansas City. With a new location, Blue Ridge Christian School began building new roots while continuing its original mission of equipping and empowering in a caring, safe environment.




Growth & Partnership

Today, the School enjoys accreditation with both the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and Cognia. Over the years, we have touched the lives of 1,000’s of students, including many international scholars, through education from a biblical worldview, academic excellence, and godly character formation.


Our juniors and seniors may take dual-credit courses and have the option to earn both a high school diploma AND an Associates of General Education upon graduation.


Standardized test results indicate that our students are performing at a high level and it has helped our students get admitted into some amazing universities.




The school opened in the fall of 1968, with 42 students and four teachers, offering preschool through second grade. A grade was added each year up until 1980. Then, in May 1981, the school graduated its first high school class of 12 proud seniors.
