Dear BCA Families, Thank you for all those who were able to participate in the Town Hall meeting this past Tuesday evening.

You want better communications. It was an important meeting and very helpful as we continue to look to God for direction and prayerfully plan for BCA’s future. I appreciate the time you took to come out and hear our response to your [...]

Dear BCA Families, We hope you had an enjoyable March Break. We are loving the warmer weather and sunshine, finally! Students have been playing soccer on the upper field after a long winter break from using the field and it is so great to see them running and being so active outdoors. Great Lakes Christian High School Chorus Group This week started off with a visit from Great Lakes Christian High School’s traveling a cappella chorus group. We enjoyed listening to their lovely worship songs and hearing about where each student was from. Great Lakes Christian High School is [...]

(Grade 6 - topic: Cystic Fibrosis), Shannon (Grade 7 - topic: The Importance of Losing), and Bella (Grade 8 - topic: World's Strangest Laws).

Dear BCA Families It has certainly been a dream winter for those who love the wintery weather! The toboggans are getting a lot of use! Hard to believe that March is here and in a few short weeks, March break. In spite of the short week this week there has been a lot going on at the school. On Monday, the grade 6 class put on their chapel presentation. Students had written skits on the topic of the “I am” statements of Christ, with a particular focus on “I am the light of the world” and “I am the bread [...]

Dear BCA Families, With a break in the weather and temperatures heading closer to zero, I hope you can enjoy the long weekend ahead and get outdoors! It has been hard for students this week with the extreme cold temperatures, beautiful snow cover and no outdoor recesses! They were very disappointed. We enjoyed a short video in chapel this week based on John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the father, except through me”. As always our chapel time began with Mr. Cope and Miss Jaclyn leading us in worship songs. [...]
