School Notes

  • Step inside our campus and feel the difference first-hand. What will you find?
    Colorful hallways decked with expressive artwork. Teachers who know every single student by name. Individuals united by common core values and a culture of kindness.
  • What defines us?
    Curiosity and creativity, authentic and deepening Christian faith, a commitment to service leadership, a remarkable sense of purpose. These are just some of the hallmarks of the BCA experience.  What makes our small, unassuming school such a special place to learn and grow?
  • A hub of innovation and imagination
    Here you`ll find a joy in learning that`s contagious. Teachers are kid-like in their enthusiasm and students of all ages are filled with the wonder of discovery. A spirit of innovation and possibility stirs the air.
  • A student-centered environment
    At BCA, learning is an active enterprise, not a passive experience. Children of all ages are invited to be agents in their own education. Dynamic student-centered classes emphasize collaboration and discussion, project-based and inquiry-based learning. Students feel valued and have a voice. They take ownership of their work and are motivated to seek understanding-not to merely complete tasks or to get good grades.
  • A bold vision for learning
    Our commitment to vision-based learning combines many best practices-hands-on, experiential education, project and inquiry-based learning, and servant leadership-yet takes it all to a whole new level. Explore our website to see examples of how our students are leading by serving-here and now.
  • A holistic approach
    Our team of teachers and staff members are dedicated to helping students grow in all dimensions-intellectually, socially, physically and spiritually. From retreats in the great outdoors of New Hampshire to the classroom and the basketball court, every aspect of the BCA experience is designed to help students to connect with others, to take the next step in their journey, and to discover their unique and vital calling in the world.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the school! The teachers and staff go above and beyond to get to know your child and help them excel in all areas of their education. The performing arts department blows me away with their plays and musicals and the level of art instruction is superb! I love that my kids are receiving a solid education from a Christian Worldview! Would highly recommend!

All three of my children attended BCA and it has been a blessing to them and to our family. The two that have already graduated from BCA went on to be accepted into the colleges of their choice with scholarships for academics. BCA is a warm, nurturing, Faith-based environment with excellent academics that offers unique opportunities for a small school. I wouldn`t want my kids anywhere else!

I truly can't say enough good things about BCA! My daughter will graduate this year with skills and confidence - ready for college! With the experienced faculty, she has developed a beautiful soprano voice and has a commanding presence on stage. The performing arts at BCA have greatly increased her leadership capacity. She has become a leader on and off the stage thanks to the amazing opportunities that BCA offered.
