Tabernacle School


Gift Program
Live Program



In 1989 our Founder, Margaret Bridges, felt God’s call to establish Christian Schools in parts of the world that were previously unreachable. Tabernacle School has partnered with several schools overseas to help spread the good news of Jesus, and we continue to identify opportunities to impact our world.


The school and church separated operations in 1996 and have continued to share use of the Tabernacle Church property. At the beginning of the 2009 school year, Mrs. Bridges retired from daily school services. We are grateful for the impact she has made as the Founder of Tabernacle School, and we continue to honor her vision and her love for children. A management team was formed to oversee the day-to-day operations of the school, while the school board continues to be responsible for Tabernacle's vision, mission and finances.

Present Day

Tabernacle School has flourished under our current leadership team. We are continuing to look for ways to improve our campus through the use of technology and the integration of teaching methods based on our philosophy of multiple intelligences. Each year we strive for excellence in education while fostering a loving family atmosphere where children grow and thrive.

Excellence Based

Vitally engaged in producing life-long learners through teaching and modeling self-discipline. We identify each student’s unique God-given intelligence, through awards assemblies and instruction. We begin to outline the future and build their skills by introducing them to professions that match their abilities.

Evangelically Focused

Passionate about knowing Jesus and making Him known. Inclusive in our outreach. We have families from every religion. Through our interview process, we explain that JESUS is the central figure of our school. He is a Person, not a religion. We explain very honestly that their children will be taught to believe in Jesus and to love Him.

Truth Centered

Committed to an education that molds students’ hearts and minds for lasting impact. We believe in fostering an environment where truth serves as the cornerstone, guiding students towards wisdom and purposeful living.

Relationally Engaged

Dedicated to loving and nurturing students. Tabernacle School has a foundational character program which teacher morals and ethics. Every child knows that they will be a servant leader.

Gift Program

At Tabernacle we believe every child is a gifted child, and we respect the unique giftedness of all children by working to help them discover and develop their gifts. Because children are gifted in different ways, we offer a broad range of programs designed to help them develop their own unique strengths. We respect and work to develop the following universally recognized areas of giftedness.

Live Program

Teaching character is an important part of our philosophy at Tabernacle School. We emphasize five different character traits in our classrooms: responsible, respectful, compassionate, cooperative, and courageous. Teachers recognize students for showing these character traits in the classroom and at quarterly assemblies. If a student shows exceptional character in one of these areas a teacher will send them to the office for “Caught Being Good”. There they get a sticker that they proudly display for the rest of the day. Their name is added to our character bulletin board in the lunchroom and a letter is sent home detailing why they were sent to the office. Below are some examples of how each character trait is displayed in our students.
