History of Wayside Christian School
 
Wayside Christian School began in the fall of 1973 under the leadership of the pastor and trustee board of Wayside Chapel. WCS was founded to assist Christian families and their churches in equipping students to achieve academic excellence, to make Biblically based decisions, and to exemplify and serve Christ. The first two years were spent in the Youth Center of Wayside Chapel. The existing elementary building was built during the summer of 1975 and was available for use that fall. The secondary building and gymnasium was completed in the summer of 1988. Throughout its history WCS has been able to enrich the lives of hundreds of families by providing quality education based on traditional Christian values. Student have come to WCS from over 35 area churches, including our home church. The continuation of WCS stands as a testimony to our God of whom we can say, “Great is Thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:23).
 
WCS is a non-chartered, non-tax supported school and is accredited by the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS). WCS is also a member of the of Buckeye Christian School Organization (BCSO).
