Our History

In 1957, a group of parents wishing to build a Christian school in the area established the Milwaukee Christian School Society. Through their hard work and dedication, the doors of Milwaukee Christian School opened in the fall of 1964, with 19 students enrolled and 2 teachers on staff.  The founders of the school had a vision to provide excellent academic training with a Christian perspective on all of life.

In 1975, enrollment had grown to 58 students, and the first kindergarten class met. Just over a decade later, 4K was added. The school continued to grow over the years, and with 122 students it was time for a major building addition in 1991, followed by another addition in 2000. Since the founding of the school, the community around it had developed from farmland and a sprinkling of homes to a bustling suburban community. In 2003, the name of the school was changed to Brookfield Christian School to reflect the geographical location of the school. A year later 26 students, the largest graduating class in the school's history, walked across the stage at graduation.  In 2005, our 3K program was added, and the school continued to grow. The year 2014 marked the school's 50th anniversary, the completion of a third major building additon, and an enrollment of 253 students. To commemorate the occassion, we created a special video that included conversations with some of our founders: BCS 50th Anniversary Video

Today, academic excellence within a Christ-centered atmosphere continues at Brookfield Christian School, serving 300 students in grades 3K-8.  More than 700 alumni are now learning, leading and serving faithfully in God's world. The 2023-2024 school year marks our 60th anniversary, and continued record-setting enrollment numbers.  

In faith we began.  In faith we go forward. The motto embraced by our founding families continues to guide us. With God’s blessing, BCS has grown richly for 60 years, and we look to the future with great expectation of what God will do in and through the students who pass through our doors.
