BCA's school day begins at 8:15 a.m. for PK3 - 8th grade students. Kindergarten dismisses at 2:45 p.m., K - 5th dismiss at 3 p.m. and middle school dismisses at 3:15 p.m. For parents who need to drop off their K - middle school child(ren) before 8:15 a.m., we offer morning care that begins at 7 a.m. At 8 a.m., children will then be allowed to go to their classroom.
After-care for Kindergarten through eighth grade begins after class dismissal, and students may stay until 6 p.m. We offer after-care/tuition packages for families who need this service. Please contact Emily Patton in admissions at 423.622.3755, ext. 18 for more information.
For the 2015-2016 school year, pre-k3 and pre-k4 academic hours are 8:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. Morning care opens at 6:30 a.m. After-care begins at 1 p.m. for pre-schoolers and remains open until 6 p.m.
Please note the following information for the 2015-2016 school year for morning care:
The PK3 and PK4 students who need to arrive between 6:30 and 7:45 a.m. will go to the two-yr. old classroom and stay there until 8 a.m. At 7:45, the PK3 and PK4 aides will come and get them from the two-yr. old room and take them to their classroom. Please park in the back parking lot of the school and go in through the black gate that is the entrance to the toddler playground. The outside door that is to the left is the two-yr. old classroom. A morning care giver will be there to greet you.
PK3 and PK4 students who need to stay in after care will come back from lunch to their same PK3 or PK4 classroom and will stay there for after care as late as 6 p.m. This care is included in the tuition if parents signed up for their child to be at school beyond the hours of 8:15 a.m. - 1 p.m., and remember that lunch is included in the Pre-K tuition.
Early care for students in kindergarten - eighth grade will be from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. in the cafeteria.At 8 a.m., students will be dismissed to go to their classroom. Please note that there will be a charge for morning care for K - 8th grade students who arrive before 7:45 a.m.

LATE PICK-UP POLICY:
We must respect the time of our aftercare, summer camp and caregivers in our Christian Children's Center. Therefore, we are reminding parents that children must be picked up by 6 p.m. sharp. For each minute past 6 p.m., we will charge $1 per minute, per child, payable at time of pick-up. For example, if you arrive at 6:07 p.m. to pick up TWO children, you will be charged $14 for this late pick-up. To avoid additional charges, please ensure that you are here no later than 6 p.m.
Thank you for your efforts in respecting our closing time policies.
