Bergen County Christian Academy
5.00 (1 review)
- Bergen County Christian Academy makes available a program which provides for the total education of the child - spiritual, moral, mental, social, and physical.
- Only by a Christian philosophy may this be achieved.
- Thus, Bible training is not an extra but is an integral part of every area of training.
- The secular and the sacred are fused together to form a comprehensive system of education. Small classes and individualized instruction by concerned Christian teachers is the rule rather than the exception.
- The purpose of Christian education is to provide an environment to direct the processes of human development toward God's objectives of godliness of character and conduct.
- The Christian school carries out those educational tasks that the family can not fulfill as efficiently or lacks the skills or resources to do as well as the school.

- The Preschool Center is a planned environment for young children three to five years of age. Located on the first floor of Hackensack Christian Schools, you will find classrooms designed to invite children to learn. Children may choose from a variety of developmentally appropriate activities in learning centers. Independence is encouraged and fostered by providing materials where the children can easily reach them on low shelves. Our well equipped facility offers the young child extensive learning opportunities both indoors and outdoors.

My daughter has been attending Bergen County Christian Academy since Kindergarten and she is now in 5th grade. Their biblical world view is very strong and one of the main reasons that my daughter attends BCCA. The faculty are highly qualified and dedicated to their profession. Class size ratio is small and offers students a lot of one on one time with their faculty. This is a small community but with a BIG heart and Jesus is first and foremost.

What curricula do private schools follow? Who accredits private schools? What kind of standards prevail? More here.
This hub page lists over three dozen articles dealing with issues in high school such as academics and discipline.
Seemingly never-ending school shootings prompted me to find out whether private schools were safer than public schools. Some answers and opinions on the matter here.
