BC CHRISTIAN ACADEMY – “C” OUR STORY
B.C. Christian Academy is known for its 3 C’s of Community, Compassion, and Christ. These are the key values that make BCCA unique and what guides us in pursuing our vision of equipping students to impact the world for Jesus.
Our teachers know that training a child in the ways of the Lord means seeing that child through the eyes of his Maker and nurturing his growth with the support of a loving Community. Whether in a brick and mortar school or in a virtual school, we encourage families to take an active part in the life of our school and to partner with us in educating our students. We work hard in providing every opportunity for all of our students and families to feel connected, to love one another, and to grow in Compassion for others.
While it is a regular thing in BCCA to support local and international missions, it is not surprising to hear of our families and students coming together to rally around someone who is facing hardship. When schools shut down due to COVID19, BC Christian Academy’s quick response to keep the learning going for its students shines a light on its resilience and dedication to academic excellence as well as its sincere and authentic care for its families. As some of our school parents faced an unexpected job loss or work stoppage, the BCCA Board and Administration strongly felt that no family has to withdraw their child on the basis of financial hardship due to COVID-19. Tuition Relief was made available to help support families with their child’s tuition during the last quarter of school.
At its core, BCCA is ultimately led and directed by Christ. It is for Him that we offer a distinctly Christ-centered education and commit ourselves to our mission of assisting families by providing an education that is rooted in Christ and one that would inspire each of our students to pursue excellence in their moral character, spiritual growth, academics, fine arts, physical fitness and service to others. From daily devotions and prayer, to intentional integration of the scriptures across all our subjects, Christ is at the centre of our school.
We invite you to attend our “C”-Our-Story Tours—either virtual or in-person following our New Safety Procedures. Visit www.bcchristianacademy.ca and book a tour now! Be part of a school that cares, that can quickly innovate, and adapt to new realities. Come and experience the genuine warm family feel of BCCA, where every child finds a home away from home.
