The school advertises small class sizes. It's almost the same class size as public schools. Very expensive for the same class sizes.

can someone help me...We are planning on going to Bella Vista next fall 2012-2013, I am worried that since we did not start out in K here my sons will have a hard time making friends with the kids that have known each other since the begging as all students stay with their classmates when they advance in grade level. My boys will be in 4th & 2nd and I am hoping that the student body and staff are warm and aware that it is hard to come to a whole new enviroment and can lend a hand. We are coming from public school system and know that my kids deserve better than they have to offer. Please help if you can.

My kids and I love this school. My son has been attending BVCA for 4 years now and my daughter for 3. Everyone of their teachers and their assistants has been wonderful. They have provided the structure needed in my kids daily academic and social development. My kids have learned so much since attending BVCA and they seem so happy there. It's truly amazing. My only wish is that BVCA had some sort of sports facility or a larger field for the kids. However, given the limitation of the amount of land available, they have done a great job in providing a place where all of the kids can get their daily physical activities.

My son is at kindergarten in this school and he loves it so much! I am amazed at how much he's grown and learned from his class. I take that it's a great sign if your child wants to go to school all the time, my son is ever excited to come to class everyday!

My children started with Bella Vista Christian Academy since they were Toddlers. It is amazing how they grew up with good Christian foundation combined with a great learning experience in academics, music and arts. My son is graduating this school year..and his educational memories wih BVCA is a wealth of lifetime experience for him. I see my son as a great part of our society today and always! Thank YOU BVCA !

BVCA is an excellent school with plenty to learn. I just graduated from BVCA this year. My class was the first graduating class. I have been going to Bella Vista since the school opened up. I have been at BVCA my whole life. Not only are the classes small, (once I was the only girl) but the teachers really do care for you unlike some public schools. BVCA does not put up with any 'bad words' or violence. Not only do you learn much more than public schools, but you also learn about the love of God. There is chapel every Monday morning to start out the week. There are even religion classes where you memorize your weekly memory verse. Yes, there's hardly any sports/activities to offer, but what's most important is the education and to learn that God sent down his one and only Son to save us!

Bella Vista Christian Academy is the best kept education secret in Tracy! A small Lutheran school where the students thirve in a loving christian environment. With the addition of a sports program this year(06-07) to complement the schools music and computer programs, students are able to excel academically, socially and physically. I feel so blessed to have my children enrolled in such a great school.

I have had two children in Bella Vista for preschool. I absolutely love the school. The education and socialization they have gotten for a preschool is excellent. And, there is also a good dose of religious education. Not too much...just enough. Great teachers, great environment.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
