Mission and History

Bradford Area Christian Academy (BACA) is a ministry in the Bradford City since 1983. Our purpose is to partner with families in their God-given responsibility to train the next generation of Christian leaders and equip them for a lifetime of service and devotion to their Savior, homes, churches, vocations and communities.

The school was founded on and remains steadfast to the same Biblical principles upon which the New Testament Church was founded. We believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God. All programs at BACA, both curricular and extra-curricular, are based on principles set forth in God's Word. It is our responsibility to uphold the truth of God’s Word and train students how to view their entire world through the lens of the Bible

As Christians, it is our responsibility to train our children how to live a life that would bring honor to Christ. One of our goals at BACA is to see that each child has accepted Christ as his/her personal Savior and to help him/her make a commitment to lead a life that would be pleasing to Him. The Bible says: "Train up a child in the way he should go." (Proverbs 22:6) It is our goal to assist parents in the training of their children.

Our prayer is that we can help you train your children in a way that would be pleasing to God and work together toward their well-rounded education.
