BC Christian Academy’s THREE “C”s


Myth:  Private Christian school is exclusive and selective.

Truth:  BCCA has a diverse yet tight-knit community of students and families from different regions and backgrounds.

Needs: Access to resources that promote diversity; increased support for student programs that encourage diversity involvement on campus; Alumni networks

Galatians 6:2 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”


Myth:  Private Christian school is expensive for the average working family.

Fact:  BCCA has an existing tuition support program to assist and enable families which otherwise could not afford a private school education for their children.

Needs:  Donors to help support the school’s financial aid programs and various learning programs and resources.

Matthew 25:40: “Whatever you have done for the least of these brothers of mine you have done for me.”


Myth:  Christ is not relevant in education.

Truth:  BCCA lays the Christian foundation essential in equipping students as they constantly face a worldview that does not recognize Christ.

Needs:  Mentorship programs for young people; funding to access current Christian resources and programs to support the building of Christ like character among its students.

1 Corinthians 10:31: “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
