The Bear Creek School

Founded in 1988, in Redmond, Washington, The Bear Creek School is an independent classical Christian school that believes only when faith, mind, and heart are fed together can students experience the fullness of education. Bear Creek’s college preparatory academics include honors and Advanced Placement courses taught in small classes by dedicated teachers in a supportive Christian community.

The Bear Creek School is invested in students and intentional in outcome. By teaching students how to think, instead of what to think, Bear Creek prepares students for success beyond the classroom. Providing a classical education with a rigorous curriculum taught from a Christian worldview equips students to lead by engaging the world with wisdom, compassion, and courage.
