Bradford Christian Academy Reviews
I started at Bradford Christian Academy in middle school, and things used to be great. The classes were challenging, the teachers really cared and put effort in, and it was a good Christ-centered community. But now, all BCA cares about is basketball. The administration pours all their time and money into bringing in recruit after recruit, which ruined the private school community. All the best teachers left and have been replaced with teachers who put no effort in, and didn’t even go to college for an education major. The classes are mediocre at best, and you can forget about a Christ centered community. Everything BCA claims to stand for has been thrown out the window all for their glorified basketball team.
BCA is a wonderful school filled with great kids! Its a small school so your able to get a lot of one on one time with your teachers.
I loved my teachers and experience with theater. The school raised me, I made two wonderful friendships that have lasted me beyond school. They do need to work more on the problem of bullying, if you're not popular, you end up having problems with other students. I relied a lot on my teachers and staff to get me through, but nothing was ever officially handled with my bullies.
This school is very fake. The teachers do not discipline the kids at all. The kids throw food in class, use bad language, and do not respect the teachers by calling them names other than by their professional name. Students are disrespectful to instructions, and not many important rules are enforced. The teachers do not enforce rules on the students and by that the students have been able to be disrespectful during class.
BCA has evolved a lot in the years I've been here. The administration has become much more focused on recruiting for a basketball program, and a solid fraction of the student body is made up of recruited athletes who receive favoritism from school authorities. The athletes mostly socialize among themselves, as do the international students, so if you are neither, expect an even smaller peer group than the small school suggests to begin with. However, classes are challenging and the teachers are fantastic.
Bradford Christian Academy is an academic, student-focused school. It is a safe place to be challenged in your academics as well as your faith.
Bradford Christian Academy has been a wonderful environment for my children to thrive and flourish. The faculty and staff are competent and caring. The school holds a high standard for academics and the arts. The community is diverse and unified.
BCA truly prepared me with the confidence and tools to reach for college. Before BCA, I never considered college a possibility. However, after going to school there from 7th-12th, I was given a diverse set of opportunities to grow into myself and establish my skills to purposefully enter the world after high school.
My time with Bradford Christian Academy was the most challenging experience I have had. I am not sure how I would have been prepared for college if I did not attend Bradford Christian Academy. Before attending this school, I had struggled with time management, and I am very thankful I could learn this skill before entering a rigorous college environment. The teachers are very passionate about what they teach, and they value in-class discussions that encourage students to think deeper about various topics. I am very pleased to have been offered the opportunity to be involved in sports such as basketball and cross country, which has helped me both manage my time and enjoy BCA. I am very impressed with the school's fine arts department, which has helped me improve my singing and acting skills.
Bradford Christian Academy is a very easy school to get acclimated to, especially for a transfer student. I also like that the class schedule offers a lot of variety in choosing classes. It offers classes that are not readily available at others schools such as Visual Basics, Forensics, and Foundations to Life. Christian values are infused into every class and are very appropriate to today's changing world. The teaching and administrative staff understand the individual needs of every student and work tirelessly to make sure that each student is living up to their potential and finding new challenges. My expectations have far exceeded what I had always expected a high school experience to be so there isn't anything I would like to change, particularly since the small community feel is very comforting and welcoming. However, I do hope that there is a BCA alumni program in place after graduation as a way to stay connected to the school and find out what everyone is doing in their lives.
I have been a student at Bradford Christian Academy for 7 years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The teachers are knowledgeable, kind, and dedicated, and the environment at BCA is very family-like. Thanks to BCA I have gotten the opportunity to play many sports, make lifelong friends, prepare for college, and grow in my faith. I love this school, and am so thankful that I have been apart of Bradford Christian for so long. I hope and pray that many others will have the privelage of attending this wonderful school.
School has a couple of great teachers- the rest are childish and get into conflicts with students to show authority. Too much homework. Focus seems to be on building a basketball program. Has a revolving door of athletic kids from low income neighborhoods that cheat or get tutored to make their grades. Discipline for worse offenders is overlooked and too many chances given. Lots of rules that not many follow or enforce.
Excellent academics, and offers a wide variety of strong programs for a Christian school, especially in science. However, the school shows extreme favoritism in regards to disciplinary actions, and faculty are willing to make plenty of exceptions for those they prefer over those they don't. However, despite these major flaws, the school does have a relatively positive environment, and it's more challenging courses are easy comparable to the majority of colleges.
All the extracurricular activities at the school have a very large number of student involved with the activities.
The academics at this school are absolutely amazing and you cannot compare them to any other, but the school tends to be very strict on all of their rules.
All teachers actually care about the students and genuinely want each and everyone of the students to succeed. They are always available for help, and are also there for not only school problems but personal problems outside of school. They actually care about all of the students.
They're always willing to help. They really genuinely care about the students who come to them.
