BCSO is an association of local church-operated Christian schools seeking to maintain and promote high standards of excellence in the operation of Christian schools and in the development of our young people. At the same time, BCSO is helping to pay the price of eternal vigilance which is the price of freedom. These are the building and battling goals of BCSO. BCSO schools are classified by the state of Ohio as non-chartered, non-tax supported schools. This classification allows schools to be truly church-operated and free from state control, yet at the same time to have appropriate civil protection. We believe the education and training of children is primarily a parental responsibility and secondarily a church responsibility. The role of civil government is to protect the home and the church in fulfilling their God-ordained responsibilities. BCSO is the Ohio affiliate of the American Association of Christian Schools.
