Academics - Barrington Christian Academy



Education that is Christ-centered is founded on the belief that God is the source of all truth and that His Word is the only true source of faith and doctrine (II Timothy 3:16-17). The Scriptures form the lens through which we view the world and all human events—past, present and future. At BCA we seek to help each child develop a personal faith in God as Father, Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and the Holy Spirit as Comforter, Helper and Teacher (Ephesians 2:8-10).

Our Christ-centered education nurtures the spirit, mind and body and builds a foundation for life. The nurturing environment at BCA is created by dynamic and creative Christian educators. Teachers and advisors develop meaningful relationships with their students and provide them with extra academic help, accountability, encouragement, discipline and prayer support.

BCA is committed to providing well-rounded curricular programs that encourage each child in the development of his/her gifts and abilities. Through a developmentally appropriate curriculum that sets high standards for all students, our students acquire skills, gain confidence, and develop the desire to become lifelong learners. Through participation in extra-curricular activities, including music groups, theater and interscholastic sports teams that include all ability levels, students are encouraged to explore a variety of interests and possibilities.

BCA is also committed to developing an effective partnership with parents to assist them in their God-given responsibility to educate their children. Input from parents is welcomed, involvement is encouraged, and partnership is embraced. Parents of all denominations, and even those who are not church-going but who agree to having their children taught according to BCA’s Statement of Faith, are welcome to enroll their children.
