Whatever your passions, Berean wants to come beside you to support, encourage, and pray for you. As you align your passion with living out your purpose of impacting God's kingdom, Berean's life outside of the classroom is only the start of that journey.
From Student Leadership opportunities to STEM clubs, competing for a championship title, or performing in our various art performances, we, as a school, plan to provide any and all avenues possible for students to become confident in their unique abilities.
We see that families want their children to be a part of our campus because of the encouraging and constructive environment we provide our student body that sharpens the skills they need moving forward.
Check out some of our most exciting events below that all students are welcome to participate in, and feel free to peruse additional opportunities to get plugged in during your time here at Berean Christian.
We start our year by taking the whole school (all students, faculty, and staff) away to a Young Life retreat center, called Woodleaf, in Challenge, California (about 2.5 hours from Walnut Creek) for three days of worship, prayer, speakers, games, and free time.
This is a highlight for the students as they get to know each other and build friendships right from the beginning. The class competitions are vigorous and highly spirited with class colors, cheers, and posters abounding. It's also an intentional time to study God's Word and focus on the theme for the school year.
Our faculty serves as the students' camp counselors, giving the students a chance to get to know their teachers on a personal level while building school unity.
*Note: The cost for All School Retreat is built into the tuition, so there is no extra cost for this event.*
Students and staff enjoy chapel every Wednesday morning. We are led in worship by our student Worship Team and then hear from a speaker who brings the Word of God to life. Topics range from "How to Deal with Anxiety and Fear" to "Your Identity in Christ."
Outside of the classroom, our students are involved in Student Government, athletics, community service, concerts, drama productions, clubs, opportunities for spiritual formation, and various social events.
The weekend before school starts, all students and their families are invited to join the staff and faculty to pray for the upcoming year. We worship together and corporately ask for God's blessing and protection on our new school year.
In September, Student Leadership plans a Fall Social for the whole school. In the past, we've gone to Boomers, Sky High Sports, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, and last year we had a tailgate party before one of our football games!
This is the quintessential time to celebrate all things Berean Christian. We celebrate with our nominated Homecoming Court and announce King and Queen during halftime of the Homecoming football game. The week ends with a themed semi-formal banquet featuring entertainment, photo booths, and great food.
New Student Social
Every spring we invite all enrolled incoming freshmen and their parents to join us for a dinner and social, where they can meet their future classmates and start building the relationships that will last a lifetime! Parents also have a chance to get to know one another and exchange contact information.
Junior Senior Ball
Junior Senior Ball is our traditional annual spring formal gathering. JSB has been held at various venues throughout the Bay Area, including the Hornblower for a San Francisco Bay cruise and Treasure Island with panoramic views of the city lights.
New Student Meet-Up
Each freshman and new transfer student is "adopted" by a Student Leadership student. Once per quarter we host a Meet-Up where lunch is provided and students spend lunchtime talking and getting to know each other. This has proven to be a great way to help new students transition into high school life and have a safe place to ask questions and learn about the in's and out's of Berean Christian.
Each new sports season is kicked off with a rousing Pep Rally in the gym or on the field. All student athletes for that season are acknowledged and honored. The cheerleaders lead a series of games and competitions between the classes for the coveted Spirit Trophy. It's always loud, zany, and unforgettable!
See You at the Pole
Each fall the students join the national movement of See You at the Pole by gathering before school at the flagpole and praying together for our school, our community, and our nation.
During several weeks of the year a theme is assigned to each day, and students come dressed up and full of school spirit.
Spiritual Emphasis Week
Each morning of this week, we meet for chapel where a special speaker is brought in to teach us and to challenge us to walk closer with the Lord.
