Watersprings School - Idaho Falls

Welcome to Watersprings School. We are a Private Christian School in Idaho Falls, Idaho serving over 400 students from Preschool through 12th Grade. It is a privilege and a pleasure to partner with our parents in the education of their children. We make it our goal to impact the lives of our students in such a way that causes them to seek after God and desire to follow Him.

Watersprings School not only teaches students the academic disciplines, but also strives to instill in their hearts Christ-like character. Students will be taught Biblical responses to conflict and how to apply scripture to their daily lives. Our programs inspire academic excellence, intellectual challenge, and individual attention. Most importantly, we have an unwavering commitment to guide our students to a life of faith in Jesus, to develop their worldview around Biblical truths, to build integrity in their decision making, and to develop a servant’s heart for a lifetime of glorifying and serving the Lord.

We invite you to learn more about Watersprings School not only through our website, but also with a personal visit to our school. See for yourself why Watersprings School is a good fit for your family.

In Christ,
Katheryn King, Elementary Principal

History and Beliefs

In 1993, Pastor Rick Brown was walking the undeveloped property of the school and church and the Lord gave him the following verse: “He turns a wilderness into pools of water, and dry land into water springs,” Psalm 107:35. The Lord spoke to Rick's heart acknowledging the spiritual desert of this community and promised to turn it into pools of water and water springs.

In the fall of 1997, Calvary Chapel Christian School of Idaho Falls started with only a handful of students. The desire of the school was to provide a Christian education for believers in the Idaho Falls community.

Twenty years after the church started, in celebration of the Lord doing a great work in the valley of Southeast Idaho, the church changed its name to Watersprings Church. Following the churches name change, Calvary Chapel Christian School changed its name to Watersprings School. Each year following 1997, the school has continued to grow and add classes, faculty, staff, amenities, and buildings as needed. The first senior class graduated in 2014.

We have a new auxiliary gym, main gym, and beautiful two-story educational wing.
