Thank you so much for the great picture of Sydney with her new "Christian friends"! She is so "Happy" and is transitioning so well. She tells us that she has made a lot of friends already which is Great! We love everything about this school. Even the crossing guard walking her to our car each day. BCA is a totally different feel from public schools... Love the Planners with bible verses, Jesus on cover, Holy Land map on back... Lords Prayer, Ten Commandments... Christmas party celebrating "Jesus' birthday", little bible verse at the top of her Math papers, Christian values instilled in her daily required reading... Seeing the word "God" at school! Love it! Praying in school several times a day-WOW!! (Smile) Teacher actually "Answering" notes written in Planner (not use to that either! haha) This is a dream come true for us. We had so much stress the last few years when school would start. We feel a huge burden lifted and prayer answered. At BCA, the very first day, I could tell Sydney was made to feel so included by the kids and your staff before I even left the classroom that AM. I was so happy all the way home knowing she was happy and had friends. Amazing how well she is doing for being suddenly pulled out of everything she knew including some longtime friends and she hasn't skipped a beat but we have seen MORE huge smiles. BCA makes it a lot more challenging for the brain. She has been doing the same old thing all year at her previous school, multiplication only up to 3's. Now she is doing 4 digit division just since Wednesday, learning cursive, making art, doing karate, (eating Ramen Noodles!! Haha), buying baked goods today, making friends that have families with Christian values and it is making her happy just because she is moving forward... This makes us realize even MORE, how bad public schools ARE academically too. There is NO comparison. Your staff has been wonderful! Tell Miss Baker Thank You from the three of us! <3

We have been very pleased with this school. Our son has matured a lot since he has been attending BCA. At no other school has he been so totally accepted, included and loved by his peers. The school has an atmosphere of respect and caring for one another. Good character is encouraged and exemplified by the adults. Older students are expected to be good role models for the younger students. You won't find more dedicated teachers and staff anywhere. The academics are excellent but teachers go beyond the academics by being concerned for the whole student. The school motto is 'Making much of Christ.' I'd say they really are living the motto.
We have been a part of the BCA "family" for two complete school years. As we look forward to our third year I can honestly say that we are very pleased that we made the decision to enroll our two boys at Baldwinsville Christian Academy. Academically the school has been right up there with a challenging curriculum. We saw that their educational philosophy was very much in line with our own. They had the heart of what we were looking for. Those were some of the reasons we were drawn to the school. The school is dedicated to supporting families. They respect parents as the first and most important teachers in their children's lives. Not only do they provide a quality education but the atmosphere of the school is different than any school we've been at. The teachers are dedicated Christian's who sincerely care about their students. This caring seems to transfer to the students for one another. For example every one of the junior high boys played at least one team sport last year. No matter their experience or ability each one was included and cheered. To me this shows an uncommon acceptance of one another. I can't say enough about the staff. When I asked my son one day who is someone that he looks up to without hesitation he named one of his teachers at school. For boys, especially in junior high male teachers are absolutely a bonus. The male teachers at BCA along with our principal are a gift to our sons. I see them as contributing toward their success in school and in life. I have also found a good number of dedicated parents who serve volunteer and pray for the school. It really does seem like a family. The school's motto is "making much of Christ." I believe that they do their best to live by that motto. — parent
BCA is great! The teachers are wonderful and care about their students. They want to see them grow and learn spiritually, as well as academically. They incorporate God's Word in their subjects and show how it is relative to every area of their lives. The administrator is a huge plus for the school! He makes each parent, student, and staff member feel like part of the family. He has a good relationship with the students, which enables him to work with them on all levels in all areas: spiritual, academic, athletic, as well as discipline. Baldwinsville Christian Academy is a school where things are happening for the Lord!
My daughter just started 3rd grade & my wife & I couldn't be happier. The teacher's are so dedicated & selfless it is inspirational. Knowing that my values & beliefs are being reinforced & not undermined is a blessing & a comfort. I thank God for this school, the teachers, & the wonderful work being done here!!!
This school is wonderful! The teachers are great at what they do. They love the children and they are excellent communicators. It amazes me how a school can remain small and intimate, be so resonably priced, and have such great teachers! On top of that the enviorment is so unique. Their discipline approach deals with the heart of the child not just his/her behavior. And they truly strive to inspire the students towards godliness. I can't imagine sending my child anywhere else.
Top-notch teachers that are wonderful and caring. My children are well above their peers that attend other schools in their academics. BCA is the true meaning of a Christian school - they address issues in a Biblical way and not just gloss over things - I've seen this from the youngest right through the high school students. This little school is the best thing in the area! — Submitted by a parent, GreatSchools.com
"We are so thankful that there is a Christian school in our area of NY.
The teachers and staff are seriously Christian and desire to enrich our students' lives in kingdom ways. What a blessing to have teachers who deal with interpersonal conflict by talking to both parties, consulting scripture and praying with those involved. Wow! Many of our students have come to faith by the testimony of their teachers. There are many mentors for our son and that helps us raise him in God's ways. It is so hard these days to "swim against the tide" so having a place where others are swimming with you makes a big difference!" — BCA parent
This is our first year having a 9th grade girl and 11th grade boy. We have been very pleased. It is a conservative Christian school, with a nice bunch of kids. The teachers and parents that we have met and talked with are sincere, kind Christians and it has been a good experience for us to meet Christians of other faith. Both of our children were involved with the sports program which is small but was well attended and enjoyable for all. They will both be attending next year.
The education your child will receive at BCA is second to none. The Curriculum chosen is the best. I am totally amazed at how much my son has learned this year. Also, the faith and morality taught here is a perfect supplement to what we strive to teach at home. Wonderful teachers and staff.
The Teachers give over 100% of their time and energy to all of their students! It amazes me what a 'K' can learn, My son is in 'K' and he learned how to write in cursive and read!
I am have always been very pleased with this school. I love the fact that my son is in a school where he had loving teachers and staff around him. People who really cared about him succeeding. I would recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a caring school that teaches Christian values and has great academic success.

My two daughters, Megan & Mandy, were making pop-tarts in the microwave. Mandy is about to put hers in...
Megan: "Mandy, do you want to go first or do you want me to put mine in so I can just get out of your way?"
Mandy thinks for a second & then, pointing up, then to Megan, & then to herself says, "Jesus, others, me. You can go first, Megan."
I gave her a big hug & said that was fantastic.
"That's what I learned in school." She smiled.
Thank you God for allowing me to send my kids to a Christian school.
