Started in 1980 for the purpose of educating young Christians, Bethel Christian Academy has spent almost forty years working to develop young minds for Christ. Since that day, BCA has continued to teach Biblical principles for an everyday life.
At Bethel Christian Academy, we believe that it is vital that we provide a strong foundation for our children's future. We believe that children need a safe environment, caring teachers, and a Christian basis for their education.
Although we believe a school should be a place of learning, other activities are important to instill character for the student. We offer various sports, music classes, computer classes, and French classes. All these and more are available with a low-cost tuition.
Featured Class: Music
Here at BCA, we understand that education comes in various forms. We believe that a child needs a well-rounded education to be prepared for the world ahead of him.
Through our music class, BCA students are taught the fundamentals of music. Grades Kindergarten through 12th participate in a Christmas concert. This is a wonderful opportunity the students have to showcase what they have learned to their parents and friends. Students also have a chance to work one-on-one with a trained voice teacher to better develop their skills.
Can my child succeed in a Christian school?
We understand that every child comes from a unique background and faces different challenges. Therefore, we tailor our education to meet state requirements while ensuring that your child will receive a well-rounded education. We also carefully select what curriculum is best suited for your child. Regardless of where your child is academically, they will have a spot here at BCA.
Will my child sit in front of a tV all day?
On average, the students will only have between 3-5 hours of the school day when the video is actually playing. During that time the teacher will have the students actively participating in the class. Your child will feel as if they are as much a part of the class as the students in the video. The rest of the school day is divided up between electives and study hall time.
At BCA, we strive to keep the cost of private, Christian education as affordable as possible. We are able to do this, in part, by using the Abeka Video program, which allows us to provide a high quality education at a low cost. We are also able to work with parents to help set up a payment schedule to work with almost any budget.
will my child be ignored?
Because we have a low student-teacher ratio, we can have time to spend with each child to ensure that they are learning each concept as it is being taught. Regular assessments are given to help determine if a child needs more work on a particular subject. Each year we evaluate the progress of each student to determine what level they will need to take for the upcoming year. We take each child on an individual basis to put him on the best track towards success.
will my child be safe?
In today's world, student safety is a major concern. We do not take it lightly that you have trusted us with your child. Therefore, we have a Code of Conduct that each student is required to follow. These rules help teach the students personal responsibility, respect for others, and a strong work ethic. No bullying is tolerated at school. We request that each student treats others with care and respect.
