We are creating a dynamic learning community that trains young people to think critically, live purposefully, and serve faithfully.
We strive to create an environment where every student reaches his or her potential.
Parents are a welcome and integral part of the BCA community.
They volunteer at the school, help shape and support school programs, and are role models of their children's peers.
As one BCA parent put it, "In knowing my child's friends and their parents, I feel like I am living in days past when everyone in the neighborhood watched out for each other's kids! BCA is that caring neighborhood that rarely exists anymore."
