igh school years represent an important transition to the academic and social independence required in college. Today’s colleges seek students who exceed averages in standardized testing and Grade Point Averages (GPA), who are well-rounded with extracurricular activities, and who can think, write, and speak clearly, critically, and creatively. At Bradford Christian Academy, we prepare our students for the demands of college studies and for life beyond college. Our graduates are ready to engage with discernment as people of faith in our contemporary culture.
BCA’s curriculum is designed to teach students to analyze accurately, evaluate discerningly, and act purposefully on new information and ideas. Students learn effective expression of ideas by developing strong, clear writing, speaking, rhetoric, and logic skills. Freshmen and sophomores build core skills and foundational knowledge in key academic areas, such as classic literature, Bible and theology, world history, science and technology, foreign languages, and mathematics, allowing students then to diversify and expand to areas of interest in the junior and senior years. Throughout their high school years, students are also offered an array of enrichment classes to expand their talents and interests. We believe that all of our students have the ability to master the school’s essential curriculum, and we guide our students to strive for personal growth. BCA’s curriculum is challenging, flexible, and expansive, and our students prove that they will stretch to reach high standards when clearly set for them.
Our BCA teachers are highly credentialed in their subject area and passionate about imparting their knowledge to high school students. Our teachers work closely with interdisciplinary instruction and present a faith-based world view throughout our classic high school curriculum. Our small class sizes allow teachers to know our students well and help them identify gifts, skills, and interests that help shape future college and career choices. We focus on the individual student, and the curriculum is shaped to fit the talents, abilities, levels, and college goals of the unique individual. BCA offers over 85 classes, including AP selections, SAT Preparations classes (in partnership with The Princeton Review), and hundreds of course electives with our dual credit program for juniors and seniors through Northern Essex Community College (NECC) and Southern New Hampshire University.
