The teenage years are times of spiritual and academic growth. Social habits, friendships, goals, and desires are established for life during these important, formative years. Because a student’s future is dependent upon the training and guidance given during these years, a Bible-based education is one of the best gifts that can be given to a teenager. After all, many of the decisions made in high school affect the rest of one’s life.
We use the ABeka curriculum exclusively to develop not only a foundation of knowledge but also the ability to think analytically and critically.
Students are taught to discern right and wrong with a biblical foundation and how best to confront the challenges of our society. It is our desire that upon graduation, our students will have the desire and discernment to live the rest of their lives fulfilling God’s will for them.
Bible study and Bible memory work are fundamental requirements of all students at Berean Christian Academy. Without Bible study, a student is not educated in the truest sense of the word. The Bible says “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 1:7a).”
Students are taught a planned program of Bible study each day and attend chapel programs regularly. A Christian school is privileged to be able to use this most important tool in the work of character building, which is one of the most vital aspects of education. The Bible far excels all other courses and texts in laying a sure foundation of moral and spiritual values. An effort is made to incorporate the Scriptures with every subject on a daily basis to make God’s Word practical to everyday living and learning.
In order to have uniformity in memorization and in the classroom, the King James translation is used by all classes.
Because Berean Christian Academy believes the Bible to be the hub of the educational wheel, we endeavor to teach all classes with a biblical world view. It is also our desire that through our programs and classes, our students develop their own biblical world view. To aid in that development, BCA holds chapel once a week for students in grades 7-12.
