History and Mission

Bradford Area Christian Academy (BACA) was established in 1983 with the purpose of partnering with families in their God-given responsibility to train the next generation of Christian leaders for a lifetime of service and devotion to their Savior, homes, churches, vocations, and communities.


We remain steadfast to upholding the truth of God’s Word and to training students how to view their entire world through the lens of the Bible.  Therefore, both curricular and extra-curricular programs are based on principles set forth in God's Word. 

One of BACA's goals is to see each child accept Christ as personal Savior and to help him/her make a commitment to lead a life that would be pleasing to Him.  As the Bible says: "Train up a child in the way he should go." (Proverbs 22:6)
