At BCA, our faculty and staff lead and teach children through Christian principles. Students have the opportunity to experience the love of God and receive grace through the knowledge and belief in Our Lord and Savior Jesus. Each day begins with a student-led prayer following morning announcements. Students in each grade will have a daily Bible class and will be taught age-appropriate lessons.
Each Wednesday, faculty, staff and students worship together at our morning chapel service. Services are held at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church located next to the school (Chapel will be held in the school gymnasium in the case of inclement weather.) Students will have the opportunity to hear a variety of speakers and pastors during chapel throughout the school year.
School-wide service projects are an integral part of student life at BCA. Each Wednesday, children are encouraged to contribute offering to support a special cause or are asked to donate items for various collections we hold throughout the year. Salvation Army, the Community Kitchen, The Northside Neighborhood and Habitat for Humanity are among the many non-profits we support.
While it is important to teach children the practice of giving, we also challenge students to follow and improve upon their Christian character traits. Being able to practice patience, self-control, respect, honesty, forgiveness, kindness and show the love of Christ are among the traits that we work to build in our students.
All faiths and denominations are welcome. Our school is supported by First Lutheran Church and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
Students take part in the annual Ash Wednesday chapel service that begins the 40-day Lenten season, leading up to Easter Sunday.
