MIDDLE SCHOOL

Navigating adolescence

At BCA Middle School, we understand that the adolescent years can be tough to maneuver well (for parents and students alike!).  Our middle school is known as the HUB for our school!

 

We believe they can be the best years yet, and have included more information below, on how we position our students and families to succeed.  But, the best way to experience the difference of BCA Middle is to come take a tour for yourself!

Instructional Excellence!


BCA's Middle School students overall have a history of scoring in the nation's to 15% academically with at least 30-40 points ahead of our local district's scores. Qualifying sixth grade students have the opportunity to take Pre-Algebra, which moves them into Algebra I and Geometry as 7th and 8th grade students, if parents desire. Our eight graders can also take Honors Geometry and Spanish I in our high school program. 

BCA's Middle School specials classes include Art, Band, Choir, Intro to Engineering, Worldview Studies, Conflict Resolution, Social Media, Debate, Public Speaking, and much more including J-term.

J-Term

J-term is a unique annual event only for our Middle School students. For one week in January, middle school students choose a special elective such as Baking, Small Engine Repair, Journalism, Archery, Rock Climbing, Calligraphy, or one of many other choices to study in small groups for the week. J-term week starts with chapel, which is followed by small group discipleship, and then students move into their specialty chosen classes where BCA teachers and volunteers take time to disciple students through their chosen specialty class. J-term is a unique experience that builds relationships and discipleship opportunities alongside fun, interesting, and student-chosen learning events.
