Message from President and Headmaster
As I reflect on the very unusual 2020 – 2021 school year, I am grateful for the trust, dedication, and partnership that allowed us to continue delivering on our mission, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the generosity of our school community, Bear Creek was able to transition quickly and effectively to fully remote learning at the beginning of the pandemic and into a hybrid mode for the 2020 – 2021 school year. Donations made it possible for us to provide technology training to our teachers, invest in new technology tools, purchase health and safety materials and equipment, including upgraded HVAC systems, and continue providing a robust Christian liberal arts curriculum in a nurturing environment.
Despite the many challenges, our students, faculty, and staff continued to thrive and live out our mission every day. While it is impossible to distill a school year into a set of figures, statistics, and data, this Annual Report, covering from July 2020 through June 2021, offers a glimpse into the work we do to help our students become the individuals God intends, filled with wisdom, compassion, and courage. I am deeply grateful to everyone who has invested their treasure, time, talent, and prayers to help create an extraordinary learning environment and community at The Bear Creek School.
Grace and peace,
Patrick B. Carruth
President and Headmaster
