On behalf of the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, parents, and students, welcome to The Bear Creek School. We invite you to experience the uniqueness of a Bear Creek education for students in preschool-grade 12.

The Bear Creek School, nestled between the Cascade Range and the Puget Sound, strives to be distinctively Christian and college preparatory by developing the Christian worldview through an academically rigorous curriculum. In the spirit of the ancient liberal arts tradition, education at The Bear Creek School nurtures the heads, the hearts, and the hands of young men and women so they are prepared for collegiate success and equipped to lead by engaging the world with wisdom, compassion, and courage.

As you browse our website, we hope you sense the spirit of The Bear Creek School through academics, athletics, the arts, and service, and we hope you will join our community on the journey toward faith, excellence, and virtue.

Grace and peace,

Patrick B. Carruth
President and Headmaster
