BCA exists to bring glory to God by training children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The chief goal at BCA is to train the students after the pattern of Jesus Christ. Luke 2:52 says that “Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” We want each child to grow intellectually (”wisdom”–the right use of knowledge), physically (”stature”–physical education), spiritually (”in favour with God”), and socially (”[in favour with] man”).

School Reviews

  • Recommended July 16, 2014 - I am a parent and and I have two girls that attend BCA and I. Could not be more impressed with the school, teachers, and loving Christian Environment. The teachers went above and beyond to with both my girls and the principal is doing great things to make BCA stand out among Christian schools. I have two more kids that I cannot wait for them to have the opportunity to attend Bethel Christian Academy. It is a little hidden gem in Parma, Ohio!! - Posted by Parent
