We have had our kids at BCA for 11 years and each year that goes by feel ever stronger that we made one of the best decisions of our lives. BCA provides an academically challenging environment with incredible one on one attention for each student. As parents, we have been welcomed and have been encouraged from day one to continue to be involved. I highly recommend Barrington Christian Academy. It is what every parent hopes the education of their children will be.

BCA has been the best decison we have made as a family. Continual assessment of best practices in curriculum and teaching, loving, safe atmosphere for all. Wouldn't consider another school, ever!

Barrington Christian Academy has been a perfect match for our son. He started in the middle school and now attends the High School. He is receiving a great education, surrounded by wonderful caring talented christian teachers. This is a school where everyone knows your name and they each take you under their wing to nurture, teach and love and then help you soar!

Barrington Christian Academy has been an answer to prayer for our family. My ADHD son does well in the small class size and the teachers are so involved and is like one big family.

Barrington Christian Academy is a fantastic school from academics to athletics. There is also more emphasis on arts, music and languages from Kindergarten to high school. My children are thriving there with the overwhelming love and encouragement from all the teachers and staff.

Barrington Christian Academy is a school where the students feel comfortable to be themselves. The education is excellent and the teachers truly care. BCA is the best school I could ever go to.

BCA is an excellent school in every sense. They have a strong Christian curriculum paired with strong, developmentally appropriate academics. The administrators to the office staff, and faculty all have a genuine care for the children and parents. My children have flourished there.

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.
