BURLINGTON CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
HOMESCHOOL OPPORTUNITIES & CLASSES
2019-2020

Burlington Christian Academy's mission is to provide an excellent education in the context of a Christian worldview to students in Alamance and surrounding counties. In order to fulfill this mission we seek to work in partnership with families who desire a Christian education for their children either through a traditional classroom environment or through home schooling efforts. We support whole-heartedly families seeking to raise their children, "bringing them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4 NIV) as well as with the knowledge and skills necessary to impact today's world.

For the 2019 - 2020 school years BCA offers a variety of opportunities for homeschooling families to assist in the tremendous task of educating children.
