Wayside Christian School began in the fall of 1973 under the leadership of the pastor and deacon board of Wayside Chapel. WCS was founded with the vision of assisting families and their churches in equipping students to achieve academic excellence, to make Biblically based decisions, and to exemplify and serve Jesus Christ.
The first two years of ministry were spent in the old Youth Center of Wayside Chapel. The existing elementary building was built during the summer of 1975 and was available for use that fall. The secondary building and gymnasium was completed in the summer of 1988.
