From the Desk of Mr. Weldon

Thank you again for a great school year! It has truly been a joy to work with you and your family! We have seen God protect us and guide us through a unique school year. We have claimed the promise of Romans 8:37, “Nay, in all these things we are More Than Conquerors through him that loved us.” 

We have been hard at work planning and preparing for next school year! The first day of school will be Wednesday, September 1. Preschool Registration and Orientation will be Thursday, August 19, and 1st-12th Grade Parent/Teacher Orientation will be Friday, August 27. The school calendar for next year has been updated on our website bereanschool.com/calendar.

BBCS has always tried to keep our tuition costs low to provide an affordable private education to Christian families in the greater Rockford area. We have been able to do this without raising the tuition in several years. With much prayer and consideration, we have decided that a tuition increase is necessary for the coming school year. The updated rates are reflected on our school website bereanschool.com. The registration fees will remain the same. 

Mrs. Ratze and I have been busy in the last several weeks interviewing prospective families and giving tours to students who are looking to join the Berean family next year. I am excited to see what God will do in our school body throughout the summer and into the new school year. Pastor and I have looked over our Parent/Student Handbook and have made some updates. I would ask that all parents and students read through the new Parent/Student Handbook before school begins in the Fall. The handbook can be found online on our school downloads website  bereanschool.com/downloads and a printed copy is available in the school office. 

The BBCS office will be open this summer with the following schedule: 

  • Mondays and Tuesdays – 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM – Call the office to set up an appointment if you need to come in these days. 
  • Wednesdays and Thursdays – 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM – Office Open
  • Fridays –  The office will be closed except for scheduled appointments.
  • The office will be closed this summer on Fridays, May 24-31, June 30, and July 1-5.

More Than Conquerors
