Inspiring Creativity and Joy

Our learning environment is bursting with curiosity and creativity, imagination and inspiration.


At BCA we provide avenues for students to lead by serving in their classrooms, in their school, in their community, and beyond, with the understanding that every arena of society—science and technology, the arts, government, athletics, journalism, business, vocational ministry—offers opportunities to be agents of God’s Kingdom. Leading by serving is not about preparing students for the important, complex work they will accomplish “someday” or “somewhere.” Leading by serving starts here and now. It is the defining feature of the BCA experience. At BCA, we will call these leading-by-serving experiences “vision-based learning,” or VBL for short. Others might refer to this as experiential learning, service learning or servant leadership; and while we incorporate elements from all of these, VBL is all our own.
