Why Give to Bradford?
Your investment in Bradford Christian Academy will inspire lives of character and service in the next generation of leaders through excellence in programs of Christian education. This solid foundation will develop a lasting legacy of Christian men and women equipped to serve in their families, churches, businesses, and civic organizations.
Bradford Christian Academy has been life changing for our family. Coming from another school system to this Christian environment has been one of the best decisions we made as a family. The teachers and staff at BCA have provided the most caring, nurturing and warm environment our three boys have experienced in a school setting. Their genuine love of teaching and love for the students has prompted us to willingly give our time and energy as capital campaign co-chair leaders during this time of growth. We are honored to be a part of Bradford Christian Academy, truly a community “distinguished by grace.” Colleen Wages, BCA Parent
There has never been a more exciting time to be part of the learning community at Bradford Christian Academy. Faith-based education, rigorous academics, small class sizes, and enriching co-curricular programs define our students’ educational experience and make us unique in our region. The excitement on campus translates into high student performance, a closely-knit school community, and enrollment growth that are rare in New England.
In 2015, we learned that we had 11 months to relocate our high school. After searching the surrounding area, we were blessed to find a new home and a warm welcome from the community at Temple Emanu-El located at 514 Main Street, Haverhill, MA. We opened high school in August 2016 at the temple building, which has 13 classrooms, a gymnasium, and a small library that provide us with enough space to operate for a few years, but not so much space that we can become comfortable. God clearly wants us to keep moving forward.
With our high school operation secure for the near term, we are now seeking a permanent home. Our ultimate desire is to find facilities that provide stability, permanence, and 21st century educational and co-curricular space equipping BCA to continue educating, mentoring, and discipling young people in our region for decades to come.
Bradford Christian Academy is well positioned to build on its strong foundation and continue providing a high-quality Christian education to families for many years to come. We invite you to join us in securing the future of Bradford Christian Academy by making a transformative investment in Christian education in New England today.
