Overview

Overview

Belvoir Christian Academy says

Belvoir Christian Academy has been serving the Chattanooga community for over 125 years and focuses its a mission on making disciples for Jesus through learning, loving and serving. BCA values smaller class sizes, individual attention, academic excellence, spiritual growth and a nurturing, family environment. We offer the benefits of a small, close-knit school with a variety of extra-curricular activities.

Our school serves children in Pre-K3 - 8th grade as well as infants, PK1 and PK2. Our hours are weekdays, 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., closed only for major holidays. Children as young as age one begin receiving age-appropriate academic training each day, and also have daily biblical training.

Upon graduation, our eighth graders are easily accepted into the private high school of their choice and very well-prepared to master college-prep courses.

Curriculum

For over 125 years, Belvoir Christian Academy has been committed to providing students a well-rounded academic, physical and spiritual program. With the help of a dedicated faculty, we offer a challenging, age-appropriate curriculum for children ages Pre-K3 through eighth grade. Our curriculum integrates traditional education with technology, while providing a Christian, family-oriented environment. We maintain low student-teacher ratios, with an average of 12 students per class.

In addition to our core subjects, we offer Spanish to each grade, including pre-school, as well as Algebra I to our eighth graders who are ready for advanced math. Students also benefit by having access to our computer lab as well as a "Google Chromebook laptop lab" that rotates among the classrooms to allow students to complete research projects and classwork individually.

BCA is accredited by the Tennessee Department of Education, National Lutheran Schools Accreditation Association and AdvancEd. Our academic performance has been exemplary year after year, offering our eighth grade graduates the opportunity to attend the private high school of their choice.
