A Welcome Message From Our Head Principal

Welcome to BC Christian Academy! We are working hard to grow our Mission of providing more programs and opportunities for our students to explore God’s amazing creation through the education they receive. This year we serve about 360 students from K-12 and 200 students in our Kids Club Program with over 90 full and part-time staff. What a blessing it is to see this wonderful growth where we can support our families in providing a Christ-centred education for their children.

Our 3 C’s

What a blessing it is to be part of the body of Christ! At BC Christian Academy our motto comes from our 3 “C”s: Community, Compassion, and Christ. These are the key values that make BCCA unique and what guides us in pursuing our vision of equipping students to impact the world for Jesus.

Community

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

Myth

Independent 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

Compassion

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

Myth

The cost of sending your children to a faith-based school is too expensive.

Fact

BCCA has an existing tuition support program to assist and enable families that otherwise could not afford the tuition cost of sending their children to an independent school.

Needs

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

Christ

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

Myth

Christ is not relevant in education

Truth

BCCA lays the strong Biblical foundation that our students need to live out their faith amid a confusing culture and an uncertain future dominated by different world views.

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.

Accreditation

The Federation of Independent School Associations in British Columbia (FISA BC) is an umbrella organization of independent school associations formed in British Columbia. FISA BC was founded in 1966 when a diverse group of independent schools indicated that, “providing each of our schools could maintain its independence, there could be definite value in the formation of an affiliation among our schools which could promote common purposes” (Cunningham, 2002, p. 61). In addition to an agenda of common purposes, the founding fathers also considered it their mission to enable parents to exercise the right to choose the kind of education given to their children and to promote the rightful place and responsibility of independent schools within a democratic and pluralistic society (ibid. p. xiii). The Association of Christian Schools International in British Columbia (ACSIBC) represents approximately 30 evangelical Christian schools with a commitment to instill knowledge, wisdom and a biblical worldview in students trained to love God and contribute to the public good.
