BCA's mission is to provide an educational environment that enables students to strive for excellence in academics and in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ as they discover God's unique purpose and plan for their lives.
At BCA, our aim is to produce students who are real; that is, cultivating a relationship with Christ, becoming equipped for service to others, becoming active in using their gifts and talents for Him, and seeking a lifetime of learning.
This process requires that we provide a variety of learning experiences for our students, ranging from a full academic program PreK-12 to extracurricular activities in athletics and fine arts.
The challenges facing young believers require that we produce critical thinkers, defenders of the faith, and a true understanding of what it means to be salt and light in the world.
Our aim is not to shelter students from the world, but to explore how God can use them to engage and influence culture both at home and abroad.
Ultimately, our goal is to develop students who have a desire to "love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind" (Matthew 22:37).
