Life Way Christian School, a ministry of First Baptist Church Centerton, began operation in August 2000 with an enrollment
of 54 students in grades PK3 - K5. From its inception, the commitment of the faculty, staff and School Board has been one of developing a school that entered into a
partnership with the home and church to support the development of a biblical world view in the lives of students. To accomplish this, the school has designed a program
that emphasizes a commitment to excellence in everything that is undertaken by faculty/staff and students.
The school occupied a new 10,000 square foot educational building in August 2005 on the campus of FBC Centerton,
and in August 2007 occupied an additional 20,000 square feet of space, which houses the middle and high school classrooms. A new elementary playground was completed in 2008,
and a new soccer field was ready for use in the spring of 2010.
By the beginning of the 2009/10 school year, Life Way Christian School had grown to include 504 students and 50+ faculty and staff members, and graduated
it's first class in May of 2010
Life Way Christian School stands as a monument to the faithfulness of God and to the commitment of the pastor, staff, and families of FBC Centerton,
to provide biblically based education for the children of Centerton, Arkansas and the surrounding areas.
Life Way Christian School is a member of both ANSAA (Arkansas Non-public School Accrediting Association and ACSI
(Association of Christian Schools International). We are currently in the candidacy stage for accreditation and plan to be fully
accredited by November 2012.
