“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”  -Luke 2:52

LEARN. LOVE. SERVE

For 50 years Wayside Christian School has been able to provide a community of learning for both the academic and spiritual development of each young person.
We invite you to come and experience Wayside for yourself.

About Us

Wayside Christian School is situated in Bucyrus, Ohio and has been serving families since 1973 by offering a high-quality, faith-based education. Our school has been a source of enrichment for hundreds of families and our students have come from over 35 local churches, including Wayside Chapel, our home church.
 
At Wayside, we strive to help every student reach their full potential. Our small class sizes, disciplined environment, and dedicated faculty contribute to our students’ success. Our teachers view their role as a ministry, where they can serve the Lord and demonstrate the joy and fulfillment that comes from living a life in Christ.

Core Values

At WCS, we are committed to providing our students with high-quality academics that stimulate learning and push them to think critically. We strive to ensure that our students have meaningful experiences that provide them with the skills and knowledge to be successful in the future.

Our academic curriculum is founded upon the principles and values of Scripture, recognizing it as the ultimate source of truth. We use the teachings and doctrines of Scripture to help form our students’ values, beliefs, and understanding of the world.

We strongly encourage all our students to reach their fullest potential by exposing themselves to a wide range of disciplines, including speech, drama, music, technology, and athletics. Doing so will enable them to develop diverse skills and enrich their learning experience.

We aim to identify and cultivate each student’s unique gifts, allowing them to flourish and fulfill the plan that God has for their lives.

At Wayside Christian School, the entire faculty and staff is unwavering in their commitment to serving each student with a heart of humility and compassion, recognizing that each one is a precious creation of God.

We desire for every student to pursue a genuine and meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ, and then to live a life wholly dedicated to serving Him and loving others.

We would love to celebrate & honor Mrs. Pam Wert today. This precious lady was a staple around WCS for over 30 years, every Tuesday. She was our librarian & did a wonderful job introducing the children to a wonderful world of imagination & wonder. Such a touching moment at the awards night when she was honored & received a standing ovation. Plus, they had parents stand that also had Mrs. Wert as their librarian. Such impressions left on many hearts.

THANK YOU Mrs. Wert for all of your faithfulness through the years. You will be missed. Happy Retirement! ❤️
