Bloomfield Christian School had its beginning in 1993 as a group of five mothers began to meet and pray for God’s wisdom in starting a Christian school. That first year and a half was spent in prayer and preparation as they visited schools from Virginia to Texas to Idaho.
These families were seeking to found a school which operated as a servant to the family under the assumption that the education of young people is the responsibility of parents and the immediate family rather than that of the State. They desired a program which provided a Biblical-based curriculum and taught subjects as parts of an integrated whole with the Scriptures at the center.
In September of 1994, they opened their new school under the name Christian Leadership Academy. When the doors first opened CLA had eight students enrolled and by the end of the year, there were thirteen students in five different grades. Two years later, in 1996, CLA began to add the secondary program and graduated its first class in 2000.
Seeking a permanent location for the school, in 2013 the school moved to its current facility on Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Hills and in 2015 changed its name to Bloomfield Christian School.
Although academics have always been the main emphasis at BCS, an extramural sports program was started in 2001 and continues to grow. BCS now supports basketball, volleyball, cross country, soccer, golf, and baseball teams, as well as an active House system.
