North Kern Christian Schools
In the spring of 1978, the Mennonite Brethren Church of Wasco, under the guidance of Pastor Vernon Reimer, established a three member fact-finding board to ascertain the possibility of beginning a Christian School on the church campus. This group continued to meet and seek God's will for such a school. After much prayerful planning, North Kern Christian School (NKCS) became a reality in the fall of 1978, offering a course of study for grades K through 8 using the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) curriculum. In the fall of 1984 NKCS began using A Beka Book curriculum in grades 4 through 8 while maintaining A.C.E. in the primary grades. In the fall of 1989 NKCS extended the use of A Beka to include the third grade and in the fall of 1990 grades 1 and 2 also began using A Beka, with the A.C.E. curriculum being used on a very limited basis. North Kern Christian School is a ministry of the Mennonite Brethren Church of Wasco, which is a ministry division of the Mennonite Brethren Church of Shafter. The mission of the Mennonite Brethren Church of Wasco is: worshiping and glorifying God; rejoicing in the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ; helping people find Christ and making them His disciples. NKCS is a nondenominational school and is open to all who want a Christian environment and Christ honoring staff and curriculum for their school age children.
