A SHORT HISTORY

 

 

 

Anchor Christian School had a humble beginning. Mrs. Bagent started the school in 1980 with six K-4 students in her living room. We stored the desks on our front porch at night and brought them in each morning for class. The school play room was a child's bedroom, and our kitchen doubled as the school dining room. The children loved it!

 

After a year we moved the school to a store front building in the Ocean View section of Norfolk. We partitioned the room and added K-5 and 1st Grade.

 

The school moved again when Rev. Bagent was called to pastor the Ocean Park Baptist Church. This was an ideal location because it was between two military bases. The school remains at the church as it has for the last 27 years.

 

The building has small classrooms, just right for our small school

and family atmosphere. We now offer classes for 3 and 4 year Olds, Kindergarten, and 1st  through the 5th Grade.

 

 

Through all these year it has been our privilege to educate hundreds of students, just a few at a time. We trust we have made an impact for the Lord in the lives of these children and their families.
