Our History
In 1987, Alpine First Baptist Church, led by the Holy Spirit, opened what would become Alpine Christian School. Through the prayers and commitment of many dedicated people, we are now able to provide an excellent curriculum that provides balance in both spiritual and academic areas that recognize the Bible as the final authority and Jesus Christ as Lord. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (Proverbs 1:7)

Our Present
We are grateful for our roots and humbly realize we stand on the tall shoulders of others who laid the foundation. We are also thankful that God has blessed Alpine Christian School and positioned us to educate our precious students in 2020-2021. We believe there has never been a more strategic time for quality Christian education.

Our Future
Believing that God is in control, we look forward to ACS’ growth in quality education and student enrollment. We confidently believe that the best years at Alpine are ahead.
