Bloomfield Christian is really an extension of the Church, helping young minds to think critically so they may pursue and enjoy beauty, truth and goodness. We are so privileged to send our two children to BCS because it is so unique--there is no other school like it in the Metro Detroit area.

Our daughter attended from 6th grade through 12th. We absolutely adored BCS. Two years out and we still talk about BCS constantly, cherishing all of the good memories, teachers and families. Definitely one of the best experiences of our lives.

There are so many things that make BCS such a great school. I graduated from there after attending for 8 years, and I couldn't have asked for a better high school experience. I was challenged academically, and I was taught to think critically and interpret ideas and experiences through a biblical worldview. I also formed the greatest relationships with my teachers and classmates. I was very well prepared academically, socially and spiritually for the college education I am now receiving.

I have four children at CLA, all of whom have been enrolled at CLA since kindergarten. My oldest is now in 11th grade. We are extraordinarily pleased with CLA for several reasons. First and foremost, this is a devoutly Christian school where teachers instruct the students in the Scripture not just in the Bible classes but also in all the other subjects so as to develop a strong Christian view of the world. Second, we love the classical model where students are not just taught to regurgitate facts, but are taught Latin to develop their vocabulary, taught formal logic to see the proper relationships between concepts, and taught formal rhetoric so that they are able to express their ideas. Third, the students read the great works of history. By reading these great works for themselves, the students are able to participate in the great conversations that have been taking place for thousands of years. All of this means that the students know God's word, can properly interpret God's word, love God's word, proclaim God's word and defend God's word. We trusted this model 12 yrs ago when we enrolled our first child into the school and we are now seeing the wonderful fruit of that.

My son attended Bloomfield Christian School from K-12th grade. This school has become such a rich part of our lives. We had a wonderful experience! The classical & Christian education has given him all of the tools that are necessary for him to succeed! He is now in Medical School at Michigan State University, and he is at the top of his class! We would highly recommend this school for anyone who wishes for their child to develop a closer relationship to Jesus Christ and to also receive a strong academic foundation that will serve them for the rest of their life!

Our oldest child just finished his first year at CLA, and we could not be more pleased with the education and the school itself. CLA really is a family and we were warmly welcomed into it. Next year his siblings will be attending the school as well. We are so thankful for what is taught and the manner in which it is taught.

Changes to the Tax Code in late 2017 included the addition of saving for K-12 private school education to 529 plans. We take a look at what this means for families thinking about private school for their children.
