    I think that people should know that this school is a very good school. Not only does it provide an academic education but it also provides religious and Christian education. They teach the children good values and helps them become better individuals. The school encourages parents to take an active role in their child's education and development. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.

    My son started attending this past September. In his previous private school I thought he was doing great but when he got to BCA we realized he was actually behind. The teachers have poured everything they have into getting him up to grade level and he is doing well. He even likes reading. BCA was the best choice for my son and I am greatful for their patience and dedication to the students. In response to the person who feels the children don't go on enough trips I say volunteer your time to assist in event/trip planning. The teachers at BCA have an open door policy and welcome any and all suggestions. We are a community working together to build strong and well rounded individuals.

    I Love BCA. To me they are the best. My son has been a member of this family for the past three years and I must say that he has shown remarkable improvement. A personal testimony I was ill and my son was able to lay his hands on me and pray for me. I was astonished. I asked him what made him do that he responed Mr. Bobb did a lesson at Assembly about God hearing and answering prayer and they should but HIM to the test so he did. That in it self should let you know that the children are not only academically but they are spisitual taught as well.

    BCA is a very good school if you are looking for an extensive curriculum to challenge your child. At times the it may seem like a lot but since children are like sponges the workload isn't that intense. My son attended there from Pre-K through 5th grade and has really showed progress in his years there. The teachers are very encouraging and very approachable. If I had another child I would definately send them to BCA. Some parents complain about the workload rigidness (not true) and discipline (not an issue) but I feel that if you want your child to breeze by then send them to public school. It is a private school so the curriculum is going to be a little more intense than a public school. You get what you pay for.

    With the convergence of Christian education and academics Battalion Christian Academy has produced a winning strategy for successful students. The curriculum is both stimulating and exhausting at times for my son. In the end the support from the teachers is appreciated. In terms of the school I particularly like the nurturing atmosphere. All the teachers students and administrative staff are familiar with each other . This is comforting as a parent to know. In closing I wish BCA continued success and would like to see the development of a middle school and high school in the near future. On that note please consider expanding to neighboring boros.

    My daughter has attended BCA from pre K to grade 5 and she is getting ready to graduate this summer 2007. BCA has given my daughter the necessary tools to compete at a high level of success in JHS. She is entering a school for the gifted and talented and as are most of their graduates over the years. The school focuses a lot on discipline and Christianity. My only concern is that there is too much restrictions and rigidity. The teachers tend to lack patients with the kids. Overall it is a good school.

    I ve attended the school from pre k all through eighth grade and I must say the teachers and principle are very dedicated to the children s success. They make sure that your disciplined there strict yet flexible. There fun and they train you to be leaders and not followers and they lead you in the ways of Christ. Those strong discipline and teaching is why I am the kind of person I am today ready for anything that may come my way. Its small classes give you a sense of belonging. Yet the problem I have with it is that they can expand more with the dramatic arts.

    ive attended this school from pre-k allthe way to 5th grade its a good scholl and they teach you alot u wont come outthe scholl the same way you came in and the principal shes the best

    My daughter attended BCA since Pre-K and I must say that the school is quite like a small close-knit family. The teachers treat the children as their own and are very interested in the success of the children. They not only stress academics but the teachings of Christ. My only exception would be that they should try to expand more into the dramatic arts.
