Leading by Serving Starts Now

Welcome to the BCA Lower School

We nurture faith and follow a rich, comprehensive curriculum to build skills and foster curiosity and creativity. Here we engage busy minds through hands-on projects while building a strong foundation for the future.

Everything we do is rooted in LOVE: Love for God, Love for Learning, and Love for Others.

Love for God:
The Bible says the greatest commandment is to love God with our whole heart. In the Lower School, teachers and students alike learn to put God first in all we do. Students begin to develop the roots of a strong Christian worldview as they are taught by faithful teachers integrating Biblical truth into each curriculum area.

Love for Learning:
BCA provides a safe and nurturing environment that enables children to reach their full potential. Our highly skilled faculty models a love for learning and engages students in learning activities that are motivating and challenging. Students grow strong roots of inquisitiveness, organization and reasoning, which are foundational to academic success.

Love for Others:
The second greatest commandment is to love others. At BCA, character development and Biblical peacemaking skills are emphasized as we live and work in community with each other. Opportunities for service are frequent as we seek to be a blessing to others.

Lower School Curriculum
K–5 students are taught in single-grade classrooms. The curriculum includes English Language Arts & Literacy (reading, phonics, spelling, writing), math, science, social studies, Bible, music, physical education, health, art, Spanish and technology.
