Bethel Baptist Christian Academy, a ministry of Bethel Baptist Church, was founded in 2005 by Dr. Richard Skiver to provide Christian families a means to provide their children an education from a Biblical perspective. Our school has high academic standards and goals for our students; however, this is not what sets us apart from other schools. As a Christian School, there are two principles which are at the foundation of our school. First, our curriculum is not only academically sound, but also Bible-based and Christ-centered. Second, we have Christ-centered teachers who love and care for their students and desire to teach them. Our purpose is to develop the whole student; not just intellectually, but also spiritually. It is the desire of Bethel Baptist Christian Academy to send out young people who can make a difference in the world for Christ.
At Bethel Baptist Christian Academy, we teach our students the subjects necessary for them to get a job and make a living. However, we are even more interested in teaching them how to live. The Bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ are not substituted for any subject, but are integrated into the total educational program. All classes at BBCA are taught from a Christian perspective, and the Bible is taught to develop deeper character and sound values and Jesus Christ is taught to show many the way to truth and life.
Our school offers classes designed four and five year old kindergarteners through twelfth grade. We offer traditional classrooms in grades K4 through 6, with instruction delivered to the students by the in-class teacher. In grades 7 through 12, we offer DVD program instruction under the supervision and guidance of an in-person overseer. The DVD program offers recorded, in-class lessons from an established Christian school given by quality instructors. The overseer is with the students every day during the school year and facilitates testing materials and provides instruction when needed.
Bethel Baptist Christian Academy offers small classrooms with teachers dedicated to student academic success and spiritual growth. Our small class sizes provide the opportunity for one-on-one attention and instruction to students, leading to greater success in the classroom and in their walk with God. In addition, BBCA has a very affordable tuition plan. Furthermore, graduates of BBCA have a very high college success rate, both at Christian and secular colleges and universities.
