Our School

“Apples”The philosophy of Bayshore Christian School underlies the development and maintenance of the school's entire program. This philosophy encapsulates our vision, mission, and core values.

Our Vision

Bayshore, the premier private Christian school in the greater Tampa Bay area, offers a comprehensive college preparatory program and provides exceptional leadership development, academics, athletics, and the arts.

Our Mission

Bayshore Christian School is committed to challenging, developing, and empowering students for future leadership with a Biblical worldview within a diverse and nurturing environment, so that each student will follow the example of Jesus to "grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:52

Our History

Bayshore Christian School opened its doors in August 1971. Our impassioned desire then, and now, is to see students educated with a Christian foundation enabling them to positively impact the community and our world.

We began our journey of growth with three seventh grade sections and two sixth-grade classes. We added another grade each year until we had a complete high school. We now serve students from preschool through the 12th grade.

Over the years, we have constructed additional facilities on our 10-acre campus. Most recently, we completed the Early Childhood Facility, which now houses eight lower-school classrooms.

We continue building upon the solid foundation laid more than 40 years ago. It is not unusual to walk onto our campus and see staff members counseling and praying with students. With the prayers and faithful support of our Bayshore family, we will continue to minister to students, families, and communities for many years to come.

Our Bible Verse for 2019–2020
