Bay Area Christian School provide quality Christian education impacting lives for now and eternity.
The curriculum contains the traditional scope and sequence for grades K-12. Bob Jones, ACSI Purposeful Design, A Beka, and others are used as needed. BACS teaches to and beyond state standards but does not embrace Common Core.
Christian values are encouraged through daily Bible class for all students, weekly chapel, scripture memory verses, Christ-centered curriculum, Christian teachers as role models, and outstanding Christian leaders as guest speakers.
