My children love Back Creek Christian Academy (BCCA), from the teachers to the students to the challenging curriculum. BCCA integrates compassion into their teaching standards, emphasizes the importance of strong moral values, and builds leaders through each of their classes and lessons. The teachers are passionate about seeing their students succeed. They are so great about sharing moments of pride they see within your child, such as their good behaviors and achievements. Furthermore, they know the importance of getting the parents involved should an issue arise, and do it in a very respectful, approachable manner. Though it is a small school, it allows for a lower student to teacher ratio, giving children more confidence when asking questions, engage in group activities, and opportunities for one-on-one time with the faculty. BCCA also celebrates diversity, encourages an international student base and caters to special needs of your child. More affordable than other private schools. Go check them out.

Our children (8th grade and 4th grade) have attended Back Creek Christian Academy since they were in Kindergarten. Back Creek is a wonderful Christian school that is like a family. The small class sizes allow teachers to really get to know their students and families. Our children are receiving a classical education with a Christian worldview. The administration and teachers truly love my children and want them to succeed. Our children feel safe, secure and loved. There`s nothing more that a parent could want.

This school is a place where my daughter feels included and wanted. The teachers and staff want to set each student up for success! Use of technology is intentional and supports the curriculum, which is closely aligned with the common core. Class size are often larger than 15, but assistants and parent volunteers are available to help bridge those gaps. Back Creek is committed to an excellent education taught through a Christian lens. Refreshing!
