BCA is like no other private school in the nation! I personally attended private schools in Michigan K-12 and still have no context to compare BCA to. The teachers at Bridgeway are deeply committed on a very personal level to what they do and to the students. They are extremely intentional in pouring their hearts into the kids. Super encouraging. Excellent at challenging the kids to learn and grow in the way they do best. I have 3 kids in BCA (K4, 1st and 2nd grade) and I adore the entire staff of the school and feel compelled to help and volunteer any way that I can. I am thrilled to be partnered with such skilled professionals in the character development and growth of my children.

My son and I were going through a very trying time academically and emotionally. I learned that BCA hosts an Arrowsmith program that I believe deals with ADHD at the root level. I brought my son in for evaluation and was told that they could help. When we moved into the area to be closer to the school, not only was my son encouraged and uplifted by the entire staff but after learning that I too was seriously stressed, they reached out to me as well. I know that without the love, support, prayer and willingness for the staff to go above and beyond for not only my son, the student but for me, the parent, things would could have resulted in two lives taking a turn for the worse that we may have never been able to recover from. I truly believe in God and I thank Him with all of my being he ordered our steps to Bridgeway Christian Academy.

This is a school that every parent would want for their child. The communication between parents and their child is incredibly strong and helpful. My grandson goes there and I always feel he is getting the attention he needs. The school has the best ideals of social behavior. He loves it there. He attends their Arrowsmith program as well as classes in the mainstream. This is the best place in the world for him. It's just so amazing to find a place like this anymore. I am at peace knowing that he is being schooled by dedicated teachers who genuinely care. Margaret Fuselierr

I absolutely love Bridgeway. My children get individualized attention and are thriving. The teachers teach the whole child, both heart and mind and do all possible to help them succeed. Our leadership is worth following, they model daily what leadership and respect look like. The parents have become friends, our children see all of us involved and helping one another. If you are looking for a strong academic program, a place that feels like family, varied sports programs and a Christ centered education, Bridgeway Christian Academy is it!

Our children have been at Bridgeway for 10 years and we couldn't be more pleased. This school is truly like no other. The heart of the school comes through in everything. The teachers weave Christ into everything they do - by teaching about Him and showing His love personally to the children. All of the families seem to share the same values & have become like family to us. As our oldest has started high school, after spending his elementary & middle school years at BCA, we have found him to be very well prepared academically, socially, & spiritually. Our family truly loves Bridgeway Christian Academy!

When we were looking for a Christian based school as an alternative to public school we were not thrilled with what we had found until we had investigated Bridgeway Christian Academy. Our girls are getting both a great education as well as a solid biblical curriculum. The staff works very hard at keeping the students focused on the best of secular and religious based education. We are very happy with our two girls being enrolled there!

This is our second year as a Bridgeway family and we could not be more pleased with the school, the teachers and the administration. Our son is currently in 4th grade and has absolutely thrived there since coming from another local private Christian school. From arts, sciences and foreign languages to sports, chess and other extra-curricular activities, BCA has adeptly covered all the bases. For our family however, the most important thing is the love you feel the moment you walk in the doors. These people truly care about our child and it shows in everything they do.

We chose BCA because education, faith and leadership. Since we went to the tour we felt that BCA was the right place for our daughter to go to Kindergarten and from that they on we have had only great experiences. We have experienced nothing but wonderful things about all the activities, programs and teachers. My daughter loves going to school each morning and tell us about her day and what she learns each evening. The school encourages (and expects) parents to work in active partnership through engagement in homework and volunteer participation. Students and parents are encouraged to have high expectations in regard to both academic and behavioral standards. The warmth of the community has provided an easy transition for my family. The fact that children from older grades greet her on the playground, interact at aftercare and serve as prayer and book buddies has bolstered her confidence and independence. The older students develop as leaders and role models. The principal and all the staff are just great people who care for the others before them selves. This is a great school, we are blessed for having the opportunity to send our daughter to BCA.

Bridgeway Christian Academy is a great school with wonderful teachers, administration, and students. I am a parent and am very pleased with the school and my children are very happy! The administration is competent and kind, and the teachers love the students! BCA has a very comprehensive curriculum that is taught with a biblical world view. Also, there are many sports and extracurricular clubs that your child can choose to participate in after school. If you are looking for a Christian school with small class sizes, loving teachers, parents, and staff - at a reasonable price - then Bridgeway Christian Academy is the school for you!!

Bridgeway Christian Academy is a Christ-centered rigorous school that is wonderful. The academics, culture, and extra-curriculars are without parallel. BCA offers specialized classes for children in elementary and middle school with learning differences, pull-out programming for elementary students with gifts and talents, and advanced Spanish that replaces 1st year high school Spanish. In addition to being a school that strives for academic excellence, the extra-curriculars are top knotch. Sports teams are numerous for 5th grade through middle school and the middle school theater is active while, chess, and Friday Finale clubs are popular with elementary students. The core of the school, however, is to teach children about their Savior. The Bible classes, Biblical integration in the classroom, weekly chapel presentations, and special chapels for the whole school have made a demonstrative difference in my children's faith and understanding. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else.

This is our first year at BCA, but have fallen in love. Absolutely love the teacher/student ratio, extracurricular offerings and positive Christian influence. Can't do 5 stars simply because we do have to pay for the privilege to attend, but can't complain in any other way!

My son is in 6th grade at Bridgeway, and this is our first year there. He spent 6 years in public school (K-5) and did OK, but he wasn't THRIVING. I made the decision to move him to private school for middle school, and it was the best decision. I feel like he is THRIVING at Bridgeway, and is learning about character -- which they don't teach in public school. The curriculum at BCA is comparable, the teachers are awesome and genuinely care about the students, and the administration is top notch. Bridgeway feels like family. I could not ask for a better private school experience. I highly recommend Bridgeway.

While researching schools for our soon-to-be- middle school son, we wanted a school that practiced what they preached. At Bridgeway Christian Academy we found exactly that! The minute we stepped into the building we felt like we belonged there. Days later people were asking how our son was adjusting to the move and to the new school, by name! I couldn't believe they already knew us. It truly feels like being part of a larger family. Our son has been challenged academically and spiritually which is a must for us. Preteens are preteens and will do silly things at that age. I have been impressed by the school's disciplinary approach to handling those situations when they arise...always in a positive manner. Parental involvement is evident and we are always welcome to visit and discuss any issues we might have. The head of the school has a servant's heart. He is always out there helping with carpool lines regardless of the weather! The same is true for the faculty and staff. I highly recommend BCA to anyone looking for a safe, loving place that will provide a high quality education to the students while preparing them to become great Christian leaders for the next generation!

This is my 10th year at Bridgeway. My children are very different ~ one loves academics, music and drama while the other loves sports! The awesome thing about BCA is that my more academic student has been offered opportunities to excel at a higher level and also try her hand at sports, something very new to her. My sports-minded child had a full range of athletics available to challenge him, but also was given some great one on one instructional time with his teachers to boost him in his classes and build his confidence. He has had an amazing transition to high school, where he was well prepared academically, socially and spiritually.

My kids are thriving here after public school. The school is so nurturing and warm for our family. The teachers are extremely dedicated and truly care for students; they address the individual learning needs of my students. Bridge way isn't just a great school; it's a warm community for our entire family. The school is truly Christ-centered and develops godly character in kids. The middle school academics are very hands-on including plenty of science labs, public speaking and group assignments.

My four children are in their fourth year at Bridgeway and our family all love our school! The most Christ-centered environment we have encountered in a Christian School. We moved from Florida and feel God led us to this school.
