Headmaster Cory Wise
Cory and Nichole have been blessed with four children, Michael (married to Moriah), Jordan (married to Amber), Andrew (married to Abby), and Sophia. They have four grandchildren, and two grandchildren-in-love. The Wise’s homeschooled for many years, and have viewed education as discipleship…training up a child in the way they should go.
“Since starting my role as the Interim Headmaster, I have been continually reminded that He is made strong in our weaknesses. I am excited about working with a team who desires to work with God and one another to bring excellence in the areas of character, academics, and community at BCS.”
Cory is also the pastor of LifeGate Church, and has 26 years of active ministry experience.
2-Day Director Amy Haynes
Mrs. Haynes has worked for twelve years in youth ministry with her husband, Bryan, who is the pastor to students at Gillionville Baptist Church. She has been burdened to see young people know and grow in the love and joy of the Lord beyond the limited number of hours they gather at church, and realized being a part of the development of the two-day program was a tremendous discipleship opportunity. She believes the two-day model is a perfect fit for many in our community. It is ideal for people who desire the quality time homeschooling provides but who also want an excellent education with accountability and programming access.
“It has been amazing to see the Lord open doors and make the path straight for beginning this new educational opportunity. There is an energy among the staff, students and parents in knowing we are pioneers reimagining classical Christian education at Byne Christian School. We are in an awesome building & growing phase, continually learning and being inspired as God leads us to train students to know, honor, and worship Him in all aspects of life, and to see His handiwork in every subject taught.”
Mrs. Haynes directs the two-day program and continues to teach visual art to logic and rhetoric level students, believing fine arts education is an essential part of honoring the truth, goodness, and beauty of our Creator.
