Great school! I can't think of a better and safer environment for my daughters to thrive. Keep up the good work.

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.
