We love Bill Rice Christian Academy. The mission statement sums up our experience this year... BRCA's purpose is to train each student in the knowledge and character of God and equip each student with an excellent, disciplined education. Our expectations were exceeded.
One of the best Christian Schools in the country & it needs money for expansion. In addition to the regular academics - they also stress Obedience - Respect - Diligence - Integrity - Responsibility - Discernment - Thankfulness - Kindness & Service to others.
This is the finest school in Rutherford County! I've been in many teachers from different schools over my years & no other compares to BRCA's teachers. We have the best faculty, and I'm so grateful to be a part!
Great school and part of a great ministry for over 60 years. This is school they way it ought to be.
BRCA is a huge blessing to our family. Despite all of the false philosophies and doctrine that is being taught in any schools today, I know what my children are learning is based on the what the Bible says. The standards have been set high for learning as well as character. In my opinion, there is no better school.
BRCA has been such a blessing to our family. At our first visit I felt such a sense of peace. Our child has been there almost a year now and she loves it! The staff is loving, kind,sincere, and very efficient. They are there because they love what they do, but most importantly they love God. We also love the curriculum they use. We highly recommend BRCA.
BRCA's existence relies on good families. A Christian school operates "in loco parentis"--in the stead of parents. Students are only borrowed for a while each day to enforce the parent's training of the child at home. Good character cannot be manufactured. It is a priceless result only a godly family can instill in a child. The manmade school only acts in the place of that God instituted family for the family was created much earlier than the first school. How strong is BRCA in academics and character training? Only as strong as the families she has.
BRCA is a wonderful school! We feel blessed that our children are in such a great atmosphere that focuses on character. Each staff member is very caring and there is a great sense of community at BRCA. We are thankful for this school and the impact it has on our children and family.
I love teaching at BRCA. We have a wonderful student body. I love watching the students using good manners and being kind to each other. I also love how they befriend and help new students. We also have caring, supportive parents. The parents care that their children learn and grow in character, which causes the students to care, which makes teaching a joy!
This sweet school has teachers who truly care and are completely dedicated to not only their academics but their character.
The families in this school are so loving and supportive of me. I appreciate the fact that they reinforce what has been taught at school in their home. I have been teaching in this school for 15 years and know I am truly blessed.
My school is Bill Rice Christian Academy. My children have been attending school at Bill Rice Christian Academy for five years. They have received an excellent education as well as being taught daily character training. My k5 child was reading words by the second month of school and reading books by Christmas. The teachers are outstanding and go beyond the call of duty. I am so thankful for their sweet spirit and their heart for teaching. My three children have tested a grade or two higher on their SAT testing. I am thrilled with the education my three children receive from Bill Rice Christian Academy.
This school fits perfectly with our family! I am such a fan !The teachers are how you would want teachers to be and then some!! ,There are genuine friendships amongst the kids in all grades and most important - the kids get to study the holy BIBLE! This school has such a sweet spirit! The ranch feels as though time has stopped--it brings you back to a time when GOD was allowed in school and prayer was ok. I began the beginning of the school year dreading that our child was going to leave us 5 days out of the week to be in school. I was fighting the urge to cry because I didn't want her to be without me and me without her. After the tour of the school and PTO, I had a joy in my heart that took away my worry.I knew that GOD wanted her here and he is right! She is in Kindergarten and within weeks she is sounding out words to read, she has memorized a handful of scripture, she can write her name in cursive and she knows so many bible stories!Her favorite part of school is recess!! She gets to see horses on site and run around and act like a 5 yr old should!The school is a gem in the rough! I am so blessed that my child is surrounded in the environment that BRCA provides!
I couldn't be happier with our experience this first year. My 5 year old is writing in cursive and reading well, and she only attends for half the day! I'm also impressed by her increased maturity, displays of godly character, and overall enthusiasm for learning.
BRCA has been a great experience for our son in Kindergarten! The teachers are highly qualified yet kind and the education is excellent. We love the safe, Christian environment and leadership at the school. Our son loves it and we do too. We highly recommend BRCA.
BRCA has been such a blessing to our son and to our family! It's an excellent school. The teachers and administrator are very caring, creative, and are wonderful role models for the students. We couldn't ask for anything better! We love Bill Rice Christian Academy!
BRCA has been a blessing to our children. they love going to school and we are at peace that they are in a safe christian environment under the guidance of concerned and loving staff. The small size of the school aids in good discipline and order and personal interaction between student and teacher.
Both of our sons have attended BRCA since Kindergarten. We could not be more satisfied, not only with the education they have received, but also with the character traits they have learned. This is a great school with a great staff. We plan to send our next two chldren when they are old enough to go.
If you are a parent wanting your child to not only have the best academic experience, but to know and grow in the Lord, please, please, please, check the school out. No written description can do it justice. My son has been there for five years now and I thank God every day for the miracles and blessings we have experienced through it. He is not only getting a superior education, but has developed godly habits, attitudes and character which has made my job of parenting, so much easier! I am very proud of and thankful for what BRCA has fostered in my child.
I absolutely love BRCA! Sending my son to BRCA was the best decision I ever made. He learned to read books, the bible, and write in cursive in kindergarten. He has many close friends and he loves his teachers. The principal is very kindhearted and sincere. The entire faculty treats each child with love and kindness regardless of race or religion. The small classroom size almost guarantees success for your child. I highly recommend this school to all parents looking for the best possibilities for their children.
