The Florida Bible Christian School was a preschool through twelfth grade religious school that served families from the Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

The school was accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

History[edit]

The Florida Bible College's staff were convinced of the need to provide K-12 Christian education in South Florida. The school opened in 1976 and operated within the facilities of Florida Bible College until the fall of 1980, when the college relocated to Central Florida. At that time, Florida Bible Christian School was placed under the ministry of Florida Bible Church.

As the school improved and its programs and enrollment increased, a new location was sought. In the fall of 1983, the church and school moved to its present campus in Miramar, Florida. When the church auditorium building was completed in 1988, the school acquired fourteen more classrooms, an art room, storage rooms, a choir room, and computer labs. A media center was added in 1996, as were additional classrooms and a science lab. Additional construction and facility improvements were anticipated through the “Building a Legacy” capital campaign, which was launched in 2004.

The Florida Bible Christian School shut down operations in June 2011.[1]
