My child has been here 3 years. The education is amazing both academically and morally!

We have sent our son to BCA for the last 4 years and love it. Best education in a Christian setting.

Absolutely amazing Christian worldview preparation for students, a cross between private and homeschooling makes our choice here one that involved the family in their kids education, teachers all very caring who go the extra mile and qualified, I could go on and on... we looked at other schools and come from an area where Christian school is just a status - so we knew we didn't want that but found it in the first few schools we looked at here in the area - but here they really grasp what it means to be grounded in faith

Our top priority moving to the area this summer was to find a good private school for our son. We choose BCA and are so happy with our choice! My son loves the school and I am thrilled with the education he is receiving and the low student-teacher ratio. He feels safe here and has many friends. BCA is a school family where lifetime relationships and memories are being made. I would highly recommend anyone to send their child. Check them out on Facebook!

We're so happy with the choice we've made in BCA - our kids love going to school and are learning a Biblical world view and how to apply it. Academics are strong and the school keeps growing, adding on and making positive changes. The headmaster has great vision and we see the school striving for success. Teachers & staff are caring and we feel confident they are able to guide our children the way we would raise them ourselves in Biblical guidance.

We just recently moved our 3rd grader from LCSD to BCA in the middle of this school year. Suddenly ripping her away from everything she has known and there has been NO transition at all! Just Joy, Laughter, great friends, dedicated (Christian, underpaid and not tenured) Teachers/Principal/Head Master that "really" care and KNOW every single child. Doing 4 digit division the first day confidently compared to public school multiplication only to 2 or 3 and adding only single digit. Teacher worked with her 1 on 1, never in public schools. We are now correcting the "creative" spelling of public schools, celebrated Christ in Christmas, Birthday party for Jesus, pray in school, classmates/parents with Christian values, Art, Music, Gym are exciting because it is never the same thing day after day, parental involvement is not just welcomed it is mandatory, notes in planners are answered, reading books have morals/Christian values and DO mention God :O) Planners have 10 Commandments, map of the Holy Land, scripture! Every teacher is Excellent! Academics are Amazing! Our child LOVES school now and we don't have to fight a system any longer that you can't change. She feels Safe and Loved <3

Our daughter entered Baldwinsville Christian Academy at the beginning of her third grade year, coming from a public school. Her teacher, as well as the entire school staff, made her transition smooth and very pleasant. She has done very well, and has increased in reading ability due in great part to the individualized attention she receives from her teacher. Class sizes are small which allows for more one-on-one interactions with the teacher. Additionally, there is a wonderful feeling of family within the school community. Enrolling our daughter in BCA is the best decision we have made regarding her education. We regret that we did not enroll her in Baldwinsville Christian Academy prior to kindergarten.

We have been very pleased with our school choice... we have found all the teachers to be genuinely caring and go the extra mile and model Christian behavior, the school is growing and our children's academics are challenging and very much on level, we hear wonderful things directly from our kids about their day to day activities at school. Above all, they are learning how to apply Biblical truth to their lives - a trait that seems to be harder and harder to find. Although we would like to homeschool our situation will not allow us and we find BCA a great fit to fill our desires of traits we would enjoy from the homeschooling environment.

Baldwinsville Christian Academy is a great place to send your child for a Christian education. As a parent who is sick and tired of these public schools who have thrown and are throwing out any mention of God and Jesus Christ in the classroom, this is just the opposite. Your child will experience God interwoven in their academics and learn how God wants them to be respectful toward parents, teachers, and friends. If you enroll your child in the K4/Kindergarten program, they will learn cursive writing, alphabet (lower/upper case), reading, colors, shapes, numbers, addition, counting money, and telling time. There is an extremely open relationship will all teachers, staff, and principal. You will not be dissapointed, it's a blessing. Public schools should apply some of the taxpayer's money to use BCA as a case study on how to frugally and effectively provide a quality education, prepare kids for further academics, and make moral decisions the rest of their lives.

Because my daughter just loves the school. The teachers and staff are the best around. We love BCA :)

BCA has been a real asset to our family as we seek to instruct and train our children in the love and admonition of the Lord. I so appreciate teachers with a genuine love for our Lord and Savior that transfers into a genuine love for our children's souls and care and concern to invest in their present both spiritually and educationally as well as in the assisting their future effectiveness and usefulness. I also love the high academic standards as well as the parental involvement that is welcomed. My children have been growing in wisdom and stature, educationally and spiritually because of the ministry of those at BCA. Thank you ~

We are excited to be part of Baldwinsville Christian Academy - the academics are the strongest we've seen while teachers work with students and each is impressed to strive for their best, the atmosphere is wonderful and students are taught how to live in today's world in practical ways, there's a lot of exciting things happening and the school is progressing in all areas. We've checked other schools and proud to be enrolled at BCA!

Awesome Awesome School!! My Daugher is in the 7th grade and in her first year at BCA and she is learning more and more everyday! The teachers and staff are top notch!!

We have been very pleased with this school. Our son has matured a lot since he has been attending BCA. At no other school has he been so totally accepted, included and loved by his peers. The school has an atmosphere of respect and caring for one another. Good character is encouraged and exemplified by the adults. Older students are expected to be good role models for the younger students. You won't find more dedicated teachers and staff anywhere. The academics are excellent but teachers go beyond the academics by being concerned for the whole student. The school motto is 'Making much of Christ.' I'd say they really are living the motto.

Top-notch teachers that are wonderful and caring. My children are well above their peers that attend other schools in their academics. BCA is the true meaning of a Christian school - they address issues in a Biblical way and not just gloss over things - I've seen this from the youngest right through the high school students. This little school is the best thing in the area!

After having been to several different church and school related Christmas activities this season, we attended BCA's Christmas program last evening. I found myself pleasantly surprised. Not surprised that the kids did a great job and I was entertained by their program but more for the fact that I've never seen kids to such a stellar job in their singing and performances. Where other programs had voice overs and stumbled lines and weak vocals, BCA outdid themself this year in an amazing play!

BCA is great! The teachers are wonderful and care about their students. They want to see them grow and learn spiritually, as well as academically. They incorporate God's Word in their subjects and show how it is relative to every area of their lives. The administrator is a huge plus for the school! He makes each parent, student, and staff member feel like part of the family. He has a good relationship with the students, which enables him to work with them on all levels in all areas: spiritual, academic, athletic, as well as discipline. Baldwinsville Christian Academy is a school where things are happening for the Lord!

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. 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.
