Love the friendly, family oriented environment. My kids love learning here! My friends cannot BELIEVE how far ahead, my children are compared to the public schools. Great school.

The care and family atmosphere is why we sacrifice to send our kids here. Great staff and a wonderful place to send your children.

Beacon Christian Academy is a school passionate about education and developing strong moral character! The teachers and staff are authentic and sincere and set a fine example of the high moral standards to which they hold the students accountable. The classes are smaller than public schools, and every child has access to individual time with their teachers to enhance learning. They promote a bully free school and student safety is a top priority! I love that my son is getting a balanced education, including the arts, music, language, math, science, PE and more. Because of his teacher's dedication to academics and teaching responsibility, my son has been on the Honor Roll all year round. They are also dedicated to teaching him Christian values. I am so proud of him. Especially, when I hear him recite so many different Bible verses. It's awesome! I highly recommend giving BCA serious consideration when deciding who will educate your child, especially during their formative years.

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
