There are many wonderful teachers at BCA that love and cherish the kids. The administration however is another story. The cost has skyrocketed and the mission and integrity of the school has been compromised greatly! Their priorities are out of order. High cost = high standards, but unfortunately the standards they once held seem to have become less important than the money and those families who have more of it. It's sad really. Also if you have a child with any sort of challenges, admin is not remotely supportive. I will say class sizes are great as well as parent involvement.

BCA is overall a very good school, I value highly the Christian education my children receive there and the individual attention from teachers and staff. As far as private schools go the tuition is low. Education and college prep is first rate as are the facilities. BCA lacks a diverse student body and wealth does at times seem to determine privileges. Students can be quite entitled, and albeit taught to behave in a loving manner by the teachers and administrators, they can be very elitist and look down upon others around them. Academically students are challenged and lead to achieve at a high level. I truly enjoy the focus placed on service, and giving back to the community through service projects and missions.
The teachers and administration are truly involved in the students life and well being as well as their education. The focus on education is key and each teacher inspires students in their subject like I've never seen before. The school makes sure to emphasize college readiness and provides AP courses along with courses in community college to help. They make sure to guide each student in their college searches as well. I would however like to see more of a Christian influence in the school as it is a Christian school. They do have chapel and Bible class but I think there needs to be more of an effort to reach those who may not seek out Christian influence. As it is right now, there is a definitive "Christian" group that other students feel they can't be apart of. So I think BCA could create a more inviting atmosphere for all people. I also think that more diversity would be better as the school is primarily one race.
