BC Christian Academy is known for its warm and caring environment where parents of our students are actively engaged and supportive of our mission. This has a profound effect on our students’ success. When parents get involved and show interest in their child’s school and education, not only do students perform better, but it also sends a positive message that there is a strong partnership between families and BCCA in our vision of equipping our children to impact the world for Christ.

In 2010, BC Christian Academy implemented its first Parent Participation Program (PPP). The philosophy around the development of the PPP was to assist in developing a stronger Christian community, as well as reduce the financial constraints on the school through rallying our families to volunteer in the school. Each family commits to volunteering a set number of hours each year, as set by the Board of Directors.

The program has proven to be very successful. Families have found that through volunteer work, they have come to understand the heart of the school better while making new, long-lasting relationships. As well, the cost savings to the school has been substantial over the years, allowing the school to put more money back into the educational programs for the children and ensuring the teaching staff is adequately compensated.

As we consider the new realities of COVID19, we need to plan carefully and adopt a different approach to our Parent Participation Program (PPP) this year. Last April, our administration made the decision of waiving any unfulfilled parent volunteer hours during the second semester of the past school year. Our guiding principle in all of this is the health and safety of everyone in our school community.

This school year 2020-21, please be informed that the fulfillment of PPP hours is not mandatory but parental help and support at a safe distance are still strongly encouraged. May we not forget that over the years, it is the support of parents and families like yours that built the strong community of BCCA.

Parent Prayer Group

Our Parent Prayer Group is a vital ministry to our school. Over the past many years, we have been meeting weekly to pray for our staff, students, families, and the needs of our school. We have seen God’s tangible and faithful answers to many of our prayers. As we go through a challenging time because of COVID-19, all the more that we need to pray.

The Parents in the Prayer Group generally meet in-person on Friday mornings after the morning drop off inside the Staff Room. Confidentiality is highly encouraged and respected in this group. In light of COVID-19, our in-person prayer gatherings have been canceled, but not in the online platform as we have still been praying together even when the school closed in March. We have one faithful grandparent who never missed it and has been helping lead us in prayer. We would love for more parents or grandparents to join our group and heed God’s call on 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 to “pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” You do not need to pray out loud if you are not comfortable, as it is the sincerity of your heart that God hears. You are also welcome to pray in your own language if you are not comfortable praying in English.

We are currently meeting online every Friday at 3 pm. We invite you to join us this afternoon. Please email Ana Enduma at anaenduma@bccaschool.ca with your name, preferred email address, and contact number and we will add you to the group and send you the online link.

Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
