Red Bird Christian School Dormitory Program:
Reopening for the 2014-2015 School Year
The vision of becoming the “best school in Kentucky” and inviting students from outside of the Red Bird Valley was cast by Red Bird Mission Executive Director Dr. Taylor Collins. As an alumnus, Dr. Collins knows the value of the complete education and preparation a student receives at Red Bird Christian School. The dormitory program at Red Bird Christian School will reopen with a strong focus of complementing the academic preparation, leadership formation, and career discernment that students receive in the classroom.

About Red Bird Christian School
Red Bird Christian School has provided a high quality education for students from the surrounding area for over 85 years. In 1921, two teachers, Myra Bowman and Emeline Welch, began educational work in this remote area where the rugged mountainous terrain made travel and communication with other parts of the world very difficult. Arriving shortly thereafter, the Reverend J. J. DeWall established the church at Beverly. The school began to grow and become one of the best schools in Kentucky. Neighboring communities called on Red Bird for help in improving their schools. Thus, Jack’s Creek and Beech Fork came into the Red Bird family of schools.
Over the years, Red Bird Christian School has grown and changed to meet the needs of the local people. Thousands of students have passed through the doors of this institution and have been profoundly affected by the high standards and lofty goals of many talented and dedicated teachers who have come to serve at this place from all over the United States. Our alumni live and work all across the nation, and wherever they are, they appreciate and cherish the unique and multifaceted Red Bird learning experience. Many actively support the projects of the Red Bird Mission School Association with their gifts of time, talent, and monetary contributions.
Faculty concern and flexibility, high academic and moral standards, and high expectations are still evident at Red Bird Mission School today. Our course offerings are challenging and varied, preparing graduates for either college or the world of work. In addition to the basic courses required by the State and the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, Red Bird students enjoy many elective classes and extracurricular opportunities as well as a climate appropriate for Christian growth.
