School Notes

  • At BGCA, we strive to teach our students the principle of H.E.A.R.T.:
  • Honor God: Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your should and with all your mind."
  • Excellence: Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
  • Accountability: James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
  • Respect: Matthew 22:39 - Love your neighbor as yourself.
  • Testimony: Matthew 5:16  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.

Our Child has Grown by leaps and bounds since coming to this school a few months ago. He has embraced the Curriculum and the structure he is getting and it shows in his mannerisms and his attitude. Very Grateful for the extra push they are doing to challenge him every day also showing this is Not a Daycare, But a place for our child to grow and be enriched in his Learning Capabilities! Thank You BGCA!

BGCA is a great school filled with loving, caring teachers who go above and beyond to ensure that students receive the best education. The small class size allows teachers to spend extra time with each student. Our daughter has grown as both a student and a Christian at BGCA. We love it!
