I appreciate your interest in Whitesburg Baptist Christian School (WBCS) and hope that by browsing our web pages, you will get to know us better and find answers to many of your questions.
Twenty-five years ago, Whitesburg Baptist Christian School (WBCS) was formed with the goal of aiding parents in raising up educated, godly leaders. From these first seeds, WBCS has grown into a successful homeschool group whose alumni have graduated to attend more than 25 different colleges and universities, and achieve at the highest levels. WBCS students are making a difference for Christ in our world through vocations as doctors, engineers, teachers, nurses, designers, missionaries, writers, in public service, the military and communications, and many other areas.
WBCS provides the legal covering, educational guidance, and accountability necessary for promoting a thorough, Christ-centered education. We offer a strong support system through the school administration and school families, so if your goal is to raise up academically prepared children with a Biblical worldview and a desire to make a difference serving the Lord, we are worth your consideration.
We appreciate that making the right educational choice for your child is an awesome responsibility. May God bless you as you seek His will and if you have any questions or just need to talk with someone about your options, please feel free to contact me.

Our Mission Statement
Whitesburg Baptist Christian School is dedicated to the support of families who have a conviction from God that He has called them to home school their children. It is established to provide the legal covering and educational guidance necessary to promote a thorough, Christ-centered education. Its purpose is to encourage parents who want to train their children in the home, teaching a Biblical worldview as the goal, and a Godly heritage as the result.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. He is an intelligent, spiritual and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver and Ruler of the universe.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on a cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ by grace bestowed on those who call upon His name. Salvation is neither deserved nor earned but freely given to anyone who will turn from one’s sin and call upon Jesus Christ to be his or her Savior.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by indwelling every born-again believer, enabling him or her to live a godly life.
We believe it is the responsibility of every Christian to share the good news of Jesus Christ to unbelievers through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We have 30-40 families (these numbers vary from year to year). We value the personal touch and time we are able to give each family.
We have graduated over 100 students in the past 25 years.
Our graduates have attended over 25 different colleges (private, public, technical) and found employment as doctors, physical therapists, nurses, teachers, engineers, missionaries, in the military, etc.)
We have opportunities for new homeschooling moms to meet one-on-one with seasoned homeschool moms.
We have 3 scheduled meetings per year as a group to facilitate all business and to offer support.
We offer a yearly 1-2 night moms retreat. (Times of refreshment, encouragement and fun).
Our highest goal is to provide our families with a covering of integrity, and honor that exemplifies our calling from the Lord.
“Almost 10 years ago, before we were even blessed with children, the Lord led our family to Whitesburg Baptist Church. Through the Godly families of our church we were encouraged to homeschool and join Whitesburg Baptist Christian School. We fully trust the administration and leadership of our cover school. We cannot imagine a better place for our family to be on our homeschool journey.”
~ Josh and Jamie Elmore, parents to 6 precious blessings
“WBCS has meant so much to our family through the years. We have been homeschooling through WBCS since our oldest child was in Kindergarten. That was 11 years ago. One thing we love about WBCS is the relationships we have developed with the families. We homeschool together, we do “life” together. Our kids have grown up with each other and share many special memories. We feel very blessed to be a part of WBCS. It is like family to us.”
~Dale and Amanda Cox, parents of 4
