Bradford Area Christian Academy Photo #1 - August 2019 - First Day of School!
Bradford Area Christian Academy (BACA) was established in 1983 with the purpose of partnering with families in their God-given responsibility to train the next generation of Christian leaders for a lifetime of service and devotion to their Savior, homes, churches, vocations, and communities.
We remain steadfast to upholding the truth of God`s Word and to training students how to view their entire world through the lens of the Bible. Therefore, both curricular and extra-curricular programs are based on principles set forth in God's Word. One of BACA's goals is to see each child accept Christ as personal Savior and to help him/her make a commitment to lead a life that would be pleasing to Him. As the Bible says: "Train up a child in the way he should go." (Proverbs 22:6).
