British Columbia Christian Academy opened its doors in September 1992 when a group of Christian families shared the vision for an independent Christian school in the Tri-Cities area. Initially, several classrooms at the old Burnaby North High School were leased to teach a handful of high school students.

There were many hurdles in the early stages. Facilities, staffing, equipment and parent support were all integral to BC Christian Academy becoming firmly rooted. Despite the tough challenges those families endured, they strongly believed God would bless their desire for an independent Christian school.
