Accreditation[edit]

History[edit]

Millers Creek Christian School was established in 1997 as an educational ministry of Millers Creek Baptist Church.

In September 1997, Millers Creek Christian School began with two, three, and four year old classes. Plans were made to continue ministry with the addition of an afterschool program, which began in fall 1998. As the needs of the church and community grew, the school expanded in fall 1999 with the addition of a kindergarten class. Further expansion followed in fall 2000, when elementary classes began.

Millers Creek Baptist Church felt the need to enlarge the school areas on campus. A capital campaign began in 2003, and in 2004 the church approved construction of a new addition. Additionally, in fall 2004 Millers Creek Christian School began the middle school program. Construction of the new east wing addition was completed in August 2006.

Continued growth of the church and school led Millers Creek Baptist Church to purchase an additional fourteen acres of land adjoining our facilities for future expansion in 2007. Millers Creek Christian School began its high school program in August 2007.

In May 2011, Millers Creek Christian School graduated its first class of three seniors.
