Leading by Serving Starts Now

Above and beyond

With a solid commitment to purposeful, student-centered learning, BCA provides an exceptional education for each individual.

As a college-preparatory school, we immerse students in a robust and challenging program of study that is informed by state standards—and we go above and beyond with extras like Bible classes, service learning programs, and Spanish language courses for every grade, K–12.  It’s a coherent educational experience that’s about equipping students to lead by serving in meaningful ways starting now, not simply to jump through academic hoops.

Students’ learning extends beyond the school walls as they actively engage in the world around them. “Vision-based learning,” the cornerstone of our philosophy, brings relevance and purpose to the educational process, fueling passion among students and teachers alike. Authentic, hands-on projects are woven throughout all grade levels and disciplines. Digital technologies and a global perspective infuse all aspects of the curriculum, preparing students for the complexities of a changing world.

Driven by our mission to nurture, equip and encourage students in the development of their God-given potential, we provide learning opportunities that are right for each student and provide services to accommodate learning differences and facilitate personal success.

The Discovery Program at BCA caters to K–12 students whose learning benefits from special support. Our Enrichment Program, based on the National Standards in Gifted and Talented Education, enables BCA students to stretch themselves as far as they can go.

Advanced Placement (AP) classes, offered at the high school level, include: AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, AP European History, AP U.S. History, AP Literature and Composition, and AP Spanish.

BCA is accredited by both the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the New England Association of Schools & Colleges (NEASC). We are the only dually-accredited Christian college-preparatory K–12 school in Rhode Island.
