Head of School Welcome

Welcome to Boyd Buchanan School, and thank you for taking the time to visit us as you consider BBS for your child’s education. Determining the educational path for your child is a critical decision and will often set the trajectory for your child’s future. Our purpose is to work in partnership with families to help students grow developmentally, spiritually and academically. 

For 70 years, Boyd Buchanan School has positively impacted the lives of hundreds of families in our community and across the country. Our mission is to offer a loving, Christ-centered environment, where each student has the opportunity to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically. Boyd Buchanan is a rare and special place for students to walk with the Lord and embrace life’s challenges with joy, courage, and wisdom.

As a Christian, independent school, we also have a desire for our students to know the love of Christ, develop lifelong learners and become the hands and feet of Jesus as we serve our community at home and abroad. These experiences at Boyd Buchanan provide a foundational spiritual framework as they move forward in life.

I invite you to explore our website and visit our campus to see our students and faculty in action. We would love to have you be a part of our Christ-focused, educational community.
