Our History
In 1988, Jim Pound retired from the position of Administrator at North Florida Christian School. Working in partnership with Reverend Rayburn Blair, his pastor at Temple Baptist Church, he was the founding Administrator of the school, which was founded in September, 1966. The School began in a one-room school building with a group of 20 students. In the following 22 years, he saw the Lord lead in the growth of the school and the student body increased to 1,650 students in 3K thru grade 12. He was supported by 80 faculty members, 6 administrators, and 7 other department heads. The Lord brought together a wonderful team of people. A full school system was built with complete facilities to provide every adventure with the Lord to work day by day and to build, supervise and manage this ministry.

After retiring from North Florida Christian, Mr. Pound moved to Wakulla County. Through 2002, Mr. Pound was in business there. As his business required, he frequently traveled to Tallahassee and, in so doing, passed by Wakulla Springs Baptist Church. Each time he passed by this location a small voice in his heart would say, "This is where I want you to build a Christian school." Therefore, Mr. Pound recognized God's calling to build a school similar like North Florida Christian in Wakulla County.

During the first week of January 2003, he visited Wakulla Springs Baptist Church to meet the pastor. To his surprise, the pastor's secretary was Mrs. P.J. Piland who had been a student at North Florida Christian School. Upon meeting the interim pastor, Reverend Gary Linton, he was told by Reverend Linton that he had visited the North Florida Christian campus just the day before. While he sat on the church steps, overlooking the large campus of many buildings and athletic facilities, Reverend Linton told Mr. Pound that he had prayed, "Lord, I need a Jim Pound to help fulfill my dream of a Christian school at Wakulla Springs Baptist. The next day Mr. Pound and Reverend Linton visited again and committed themselves to work together to follow God's leadership to build a Christian school for children in Grades K3 thru Grade 12. The purpose of the school would be to provide an opportunity for an outstanding education which would prepare students to serve Jesus throughout their lives, and to lead these children to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior if they had not already done so.

From that day on, Mr. Pound worked to organize the school which was begun in August of 2003. Wakulla Christian School became a Florida Not-for-Profit Corporation in February, 2004. Wakulla Christian was also determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3).

During the months before Wakulla Christian School opened, an agreement was reached with Wakulla Springs Baptist Church for the school to lease classroom space available in the church. Two walls, separating small Sunday school rooms, were removed to provide two classrooms which would each house 15 students.

The school began with 28 preschool students at the start of the 2003-04 school year. While the WSBC administrative team originally decided that the school be a separate corporation from the church, which is the way WCS operated from its inception until the end of the 2010-11 school year, WSBC voted in July 2011 for WCS to become a ministry of the church – operating as a separated LLC in the name of Wakulla Springs Christian School d/b/a/ Wakulla Christian School.

Educational Philosophy
Wakulla Christian School was founded on the belief in the inerrant, inspired Word of God, the Bible, the only infallible rule of faith and practice. The school exists to assist parents in fulfilling God's ultimate purpose of preparing children to enter into and mature within His spiritual family, and to respond to Him with respect and obedience. The school seeks to assist in the personal growth and development of students by providing an education based upon an integrated understanding of biblical principles and academic knowledge. Education with a proper emphasis on the spiritual, mental, social, and physical aspects of life will lead to the balanced development of the whole person. WCS is a ministry of WSBC – operating as a separated LLC in the name of Wakulla Springs Christian School d/b/a/ Wakulla Christian School.
