There is a no bully policy. My children have attended another Christian school in the past and have been bullied. In BCA I have never come across that. All the kids in the school wave, say hi, and hold the door open for us.
They promote a student council where the children learn leadership roles. They have meetings and vote on issues. I have walked into the school last year and had seen posters of people running for office lol. It was done friendly and without issues. That has a lot to say. The kids support each other.
One of the great things this school does is professional dress day. It teaches the children to think about what they want to become, and act on it. They have a day, where they get to dress up professionally and walk in that role for the day. If we tell our children to work hard, you will be successful, then they will start to believe it. With that comes confidence and respect. They start to learn how to communicate with others on the job and become a team player. In today society that is very important.
The staff is amazing. The teachers that have come aboard are very educated and talented.My children have never had a negative experience with the teachers or staff. A great foundation was laid and proud to be a part of it.
I am so confused about these comments on here. Are we talking about the same school? The Barnabas Christian Academy that teaches violin, ballet, praise team worship,offer dual enrollment, professional dress day, student council, sports, stem program, and extracurricular activities. My children love this school, and they understand as the school grows, change happens. It takes a village to raise these kids to become a successful adults, and BCA is my village. In any school, there will be bumps in the road. They have had their share of bumps, with the growth, like any facility comes across. The difference is, I have come to pick up my kids after 7pm from sports and have seen the staff working late.They listen to your concerns and try to accommodate the best they can. They are dedicated to these children beyond our understanding. We need , as parents, to be more involved in the school like volunteering. God has a special plan for this school and He will see it through. I stand by this school and know that my children have the best education and training they need to be successful.
Barnabas Christian is the most unorganized school I've ever had the displeasure of overviewing. So far the schedule for students have been changed three times & they still have been unable to come to a conclusion for the final schedule, which is something that should've been dealt with during summer planning, and they have the nerve to harass students at school infront of their peers instead of contacting the parents/guardians it is absolutely ridiculous.
This school offers a unique quality that is all but lost in today's world. The staff are warm and friendly, and the administrators are very professional. I have been fortunate to witness personally the caring nature of the teachers, and the difference this has made in the classroom and in the lives of the students.
