School History:

Brothers Joe and Al Greene founded Bellevue Christian School in the basement of Juanita Community Church in 1950. They had a vision for Christ-centered education.

They had formed the idea of a school in the mission field and in church service work. The Greenes were influenced by the newly developing Christian education philosophies of Rev. Peter DeJong, Dr. Mark Fakkema, Professor H. Evan Runner and Abraham Kuyper.

One of the unique aspects of the Greenes’ educational philosophy was their willingness to let scripture and Christian educational theories and constructs frame training and practice.

The theories of Herman Dooyeweerd, Peter Shouls, Harvy Cox and Dr. Francis Schaeffer were discussed and debated by the early faculty as Al Greene encouraged and fostered the spirit of finding God’s purposes for what a Christ-centered education should be.
