Frequently Asked Questions

Is Belvoir Christian Academy accredited?

BCA is currently accredited by the Tennessee Department of Education, the National Lutheran Schools Accreditation Association (NLSA) and AdvancED.

Is Belvoir Christian Academy the same as The Lutheran School?

Yes. In 2006, The Lutheran School changed its name to Belvoir Christian Academy to more accurately reflect the area as well as its desire to ensure that families of all faiths and Christian denominations are welcome to enroll. 

The congregations of First Lutheran Church and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church continue their support of BCA. Belvoir Christian Academy’s mission is to make disciples for Jesus through learning, loving and serving. Established in 1887, BCA is excited about moving forward into the next one hundred years.

I have returned my application. What is the next step?

After applying for admission, our Admissions Director will work with your schedule to set up a time to have your child complete an assessment with the teacher of the rising grade (required for kindergarten - 8th grade). Following the assessment, families may need to meet with the teacher to go over test results, and finally, they will meet with our principal to go over school procedures and policies.
