why give to bbs?

every year, every gift makes a difference.

our annual fund, building bridges, is the most important source of revenue available to brainerd baptist school aside from tuition.  the funds raised provide operating monies that support the ongoing work at the school and bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate a student.  a successful annual fund drive helps keep tuition as affordable as possible for students and their families.  we hope you will prayerfully consider making a donation.  our goal is 100% participation among parents, faculty and staff. your gift will help us remain one of the finest christian schools in chattanooga, tn. questions regarding annual giving or other giving opportunities may be directed to ellen baggenstoss at 423-622-3873 ext. 163.

the bradley family

As parents of two boys, our hope is that we provide them with a Christ-centered, strong academic, and nurturing education. We chose Brainerd Baptist School because we saw those attributes present. From the teachers praying over the students to the Foundations & Framework classes that integrate writing with all core classes, BBS continues to provide academic and spiritual growth for our boys. Each year the school takes the students' learning experience to a higher level. The addition of the Four C's for the upper school, the hands-on STEM lab, and the recent HUB space are just a few examples of the exceptional learning experience. It truly takes a village to support these efforts and my family will continue to support BBS for years to come.
