a message from our superintendent

The faculty and I want to welcome you to our school. Stockdale Christian is a school that is dedicated to training young men and women to be followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. This vision involves the home, the church, and the school. We know the decisions in the home, church, and school must harmonize with each other in order to have a unified Christ-centered educational experience. 

Stockdale Christian is a school that is dedicated to discipleship training for those students who come from a Christian home where the parents are born again and are living for the Lord. We are a school whose major emphasis is one of nurturing and maturing those dedicated young lives into effective and healthy witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Stockdale Christian School will be striving to make Jesus Christ a reality in the hearts and lives of each one of the students in the school. Teachers will be living and teaching by example. We will be praying for each student and asking God to fill each life with His love and Spirit.

About Stockdale Christian School


Stockdale Christian School exists to educate students from Christian families, leading students to believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior, achieve excellence, and serve others.



Stockdale Christian Schools was established to provide a quality Christian educational program on the highest spiritual, moral and academic levels. It provides students a true perspective of their lives, world, and universe, as revealed through the Holy Scriptures; to inculcate in each child, with the cooperation of home and church, the moral strength, spiritual insight, and academic integrity necessary to live a life that would bring glory and honor to God.


Stockdale Christian School is one of the few schools in Bakersfield that is accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges), ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International), and CITR (Commission on International and Transregional Accreditation).


Stockdale Christian School was first accredited in 1984 and has continued through scheduled visits by the accrediting committees. Each visit resulted in the school receiving a 6 year accreditation term, the longest term a school can receive.  When an accreditation team visits a school, they scrutinize every area of the school program including mission, philosophy, curriculum, faculty, finance, facility, school services, etc.  Each team visit concludes with the visiting team identifying commendations and recommendations for the school to address.  This positions the school to continually improve and refine its program.


Accreditation is important to parents, because it provides evidence that quality exists in its program.  Stockdale Christian School is pleased with its superior

record of maintaining its accredited status since 1984.  It is our desire to provide the very best in Christian education.


Stockdale Christian School is a ministry of Bakersfield First Assembly. It is governed by a Board of Directors, who are appointed by the church Board of Directors. Board members must be born again believers. Each member must also be a member in good standing of Bakersfield First Assembly, and demonstrate the qualities of Christian character that we seek to develop in our students. Board members serve a three year term and may serve one more term if appointed. The Board's primary functions are to exercise spiritual leadership, establish school policies, approve the annual budget, and generally promote the well-being of the school.
