From the moment my wife, my rising 6th grader and I walked through the Bridgeway Christian Academy doors, we felt extremely comfortable and right at home. We were greeted with welcoming smiles and warming kindness. Each faculty member we met during our tour was very pleasant and easy to talk with. The faculty members were kind enough to take time out of their busy day to meet with us and answer any and all questions we had about the school, curriculum and expectations. Once the school year started it has been a wonderful experience and we honestly couldn`t be happier with our decision to send our son to BCA. Every teacher, faculty member, class, event, and sport, etc. we`ve experienced, has exceeded our hope and expectations. Our son has not only enjoyed his time at BCA, but his faith, academic knowledge and character has grown in such a positive way as well. We are very excited to see what the next couple of years bring for our son and our family.

Bridgeway Christian academy has been a gift to our family. Our children are excelling academically, cared for by the teachers and staff, making lifelong friends and growing in their faith in the Lord. We consider the school to be our family. We are raising up the next generation of leaders and are grateful to have this school as our partner in such an important responsibility.

Community memberOverall experienceOur daughter has been at BCA for 1 1/2 years. We love the Christ centered environment and excellent teaching. The character building incorporated by the teachers is wonderful! The curriculum is challenging and age appropriate. When our daughter struggled with math, she got one-on-one help from an assistant who is a certified teacher with an education degree. The staff and other families are so personable and loving which makes us feel a part of the BCA family!

We couldn`t be more pleased with our experience at Bridgeway Christian Academy. Our boys are diverse in both personality and learning style, and they are both truly thriving. When you engage with teachers and staff, you experience the heart of the school. Each person my children encounter at school loves the Lord, and loves them! It is a joyful, peaceful place - where children are guided and educated both academically and spiritually. We`re finishing our third year at BCA, and look forward to many more!

As the dad of a Bridgeway Christian Academy student, I have seen firsthand the commitment and passion that the faculty and staff bring to bear to encourage my son to develop to the full extent of his God-given ability. BCA encourages and equips children through Christ-centered curriculum, sports programs and fine arts. I am definitely a satisfied customer.

Our daughter is in her third year at Bridgeway and our son just started. We love the school, the teachers, the families. It is a great community. It is wonderful knowing that our kids are getting a great Christ-centered education in a loving environment.

This is the 8th year that our children have been attending Bridgeway Christian Academy and we could not imagine them going anywhere else. You really need to step inside the school to understand what an irresistible community of Christ-centered families make BCA what it is. We love the teachers and staff - they are incredibly loving and talented. BCA's media center is top-notch and the PTF has raised funds to further enhance the sports field and student play areas. My wife and I highly recommend that you check them out.

AWESOME! All 4 of my kids started here in K5, After 11 years, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Bridgeway has helped partner with us as parents in laying a Christ Centered foundation and has well prepared all of my kids for life far beyond their school age years. My youngest will be there another 4 years, looking forward to experiencing more of Bridgeway in the years to come.

Our boys are in their 6th year at BCA, it is the absolute best investment we have ever made in our children. We continually see the value of having Godly influence in their lives from the teachers, other parents, and students. Our children are known, by that I mean that the administration knows the very best ways to help them be their best selves, academically, emotionally, and spiritually, educating the whole child. The friendships we have built with other families has been invaluable raising our children, we are so thankful for wise council through the years. BCA does an outstanding job academically preparing the students for the future and that is measurable but what also makes BCA standout are the hearts, minds, and attitudes of the students. We get to see this in the halls, classrooms, playground and at our sporting events, that`s our favorite part, student`s hearts being shaped and watching our boys learning how to love better.

Our children graduated from Bridgeway school. We have 14 years of experience with the staff of Bridgeway. We can truly testify the impact of the Christian school education in our children's life. Exceptional school experience we had through Bridgeway. Every teacher made a great impact in our children's life. The Bridgeway school seeks the kingdom of God first in all things. It makes an eternal impact in the life of children for His glory.

Bridgeway Christian Academy is an amazing school. Our children have collectively been there for 13 years. The teachers and administration are what makes the school so amazing. They are dedicated to growing your child academically and spiritually. They truly care about your child as if he/she were their own. The school still believes in a well rounded student by including Spanish, Art, Music, Bible, PE, and recess as part of the curriculum! The families of BCA are warm and caring. The school is not just an academic institution, it becomes like your family. To describe how wonderful BCA is in words is impossible. You have to experience it to truly see the beauty of this school!
