It wasn't until I reached adulthood that I understood the value of what BJA had given me. The love, accountability, and consistent messaging that supported me in honoring Christ is yielding fruit in my life and my children's lives. As a business owner, I find myself "pulling up" the many lessons I learned about HOW to practically honor GOD in our daily business practices. If you want your child to have a Christ-centered education, BJA is the place.

As an organization this school has exceeded my expectations. The personable learning environment that my child is receiving is priceless. The platform for personal development that I have seen in just a year is commendable. Great job BJA!!!!
