Student Handbook

2019-2020

Bradford Area Christian Academy was instituted to help Christian parents meet the spiritual and academic needs of their children. Therefore, we expect that families who enroll their children at BACA are raising their children in a manner which corresponds with BACA’s philosophy & purpose, are regularly attending a local Bible-believing church, and are willing to subscribe to BACA’s Statement of Faith, standards, and policies as set forth in this handbook.

 

A. GENERAL GUIDELINES

 

Students enrolling in the PreK 3 program must be 3 years old by September 1st. Students enrolling in the PreK 4 program must be 4 years old by September 1st. Students enrolling in Kindergarten must be 5 years old by September 1st. 

Students must be thoroughly potty trained to attend either PreK or Kindergarten.

 

For the safety and well-being of our students and employees, students, and/or employees with a life-threatening, communicable disease may not attend or work at BACA. Decisions regarding attendance or employment will take into account multiple medical professionals with expertise in the disease.

  • Authorize BACA to obtain official transcripts showing satisfactory achievement for the grade level in which the child was previously enrolled.

 

All new students are accepted on a trial period, during which they will be evaluated to determine their ability to follow the vision of BACA, their willingness to submit to the school’s policies, and BACA’s ability to meet their needs.
