About BCS

Baptist Christian School of Hemet began in 1965 as a ministry of Cornerstone Church of Hemet. After beginning with only kindergarten and first grade, the school's program expanded to include pre-school through ninth grade by 1973. The rest of the high school grades (10-12) were added beginning in 1983 with the first high school graduation in 1986. We are located in the heart of the Hemet and San Jacinto Valley. Our students come from over 30 different church families around the valley.
