About Wayside Christian School

Thank you for your interest in Wayside Christian School. Wayside Christian School is located in Bucyrus, Ohio. Since 1973, WCS has enriched the lives of hundreds of families by providing quality private education based on traditional Christian values. Our students have come to us from over 35 area churches, including our home church, Wayside Chapel.
At Wayside, we are committed to the task of maximizing the potential of every student. We accomplish a great deal in our classes due to comfortable sizes, consistent discipline, and committed faculty. Our teachers see their ministry as an opportunity to serve the Lord by showing how to live a fulfilling life in Christ. Our goals include developing godly character traits, teaching the value of working with excellence, promoting patriotism, practicing good manners, and thinking from a Christian worldview as applied to all subject areas.

Classes at WCS are taught from a Biblical worldview and are designed to enhance and engage students in learning while challenging them to think critically. The ABEKA curriculum is designed to prepare students for entrance into college and to be Christian leaders who impact their world for Christ. All grade levels have daily Bible class and weekly chapel services.


WCS is a traditional education Kindergarten through grade 12 school. It is our desire to partner with Bible-believing families in educating students to be well equipped for life: academically, spiritually, and socially.


WCS is excited to be able to offer soccer and basketball for boys and volleyball and basketball for girls 7th grade and up. Students in 5th and 6th grade are also able to participate on our Junior High sports teams. As a member of BCSO (Buckeye Christian School Organization) our students compete against other Christian schools in the area and have the opportunity to be a part of the BCSO state tournament at the end of each sports season.
It is our goal to use athletics to help teach our students excellence, godly character, and sportsmanship. We believe that an athletic program should not be so narrowly focused on winning that Christian values are lost. Our coaches, while seeking to develop each athletes athletic skills, are also focused on helping each athlete learn how to use the abilities that he/she has been given for the glory of God.
