BCA High School Students Complete Fall Semester Visits

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
During Bridgeway Christian Academy’s Fall Semester, our inaugural 9th grade high school students were out in the community receiving an education outside of their classroom walls. On Tuesday mornings, they visited various community outreach and ministry facilities where they had an opportunity to serve in a variety of capacities. This program is part of BCA’s unique high school model that gives our students an opportunity to give back to those in need. The visits are conducted on a rotating basis and include: Greenville Rescue Mission, Salvation Army, Triune Mercy Center, Miracle Hill’s Overcomer Center, Shepherd’s Gate and Place of Hope.
 
On Thursday mornings, BCA students had a chance to visit many of Greenville’s larger employers as part of our ‘Career Exploration and Technology Program’. Our goal is to give our 9th graders some early exposure to potential career paths so they can begin considering what academic curriculums they need to pursue in high school and beyond. The program included visits to: GE Advanced Manufacturing, GHS Simulation Center, Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital, T&S Brass, Offices of U.S. Senator Tim Scott, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, and Congressman Trey Gowdy, Michelin North America and the Clemson’s Biomedical Engineering Innovation Center (CUBEInC).
 
Our plan is to continue these visits in the spring that will help showcase BCA and our students to business and community leaders throughout Greenville. For a closer look at what we did check out the video below:

BCA Packs 10,000 Meals for Hungry Children

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Bridgeway Christian Academy just had an event where students, parents, grandparents, school board members, faculty and staff packed 10,000 meals for hungry children in Haiti and Greenville. This amazing accomplishment was the culmination of a semester-long campaign in which our families solicited donations from personal and business relationships that will help provide scholarship assistance and curriculum enhancements for our school.
In addition to having a great turnout of parent volunteers, we got some great local media coverage from both WSPA TV and WORD Radio. We also had a live DJ and Harrison Orthodontics was kind enough to provide and man a photo booth that added to the festivities.
Of the 10,000 meals packed, 9,000 will go to Bethel Mission Outreach, a ministry partner with Bridgeway Church and 1,000 will go to Harvest Hope Food Bank, an organization in Greenville that provides assistance for those in need in Greenville.
Thanks so much to all who participated in this wonderful endeavor that not only benefits BCA but will make a significant difference in the lives of many overseas and right here in our own backyard.

BCA Recognizes National Jr. Beta Club Members

On Friday, November 17, 2017, Bridgeway Christian Academy held a National Jr. Beta Club Induction Ceremony celebrating those students who qualified for this prestigious honor. The National Jr. Beta Club recognizes high academic achievement, promotes character and social responsibility. encourages service involvement to school and community, fosters leadership skills, and provides settings for our students to develop interpersonal relationship skills. They are also responsible for fulfilling 20 service hours throughout the school year as part of their membership. To receive an invitation for induction, students are required to maintain an A/B average during their previous school year and first quarter of the current school year.
The Bible verse adopted by BCA staff and students for Junior Beta is Romans 12:7-8
“If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.”
 
Congratulations to all those who qualified!

BCA Celebrates Grandparents’ Day

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Bridgeway Christian Academy recently held a ceremony for the very special people in our students’ lives. We’re talking, of course, about our Grandparents. The ones that spoil with maybe a little too much junk food, extended bedtimes and the purchase of toys that might not otherwise be received. The event was a chance to honor them for all they do and to give them a first-hand glimpse at what happens at our amazing school every day. Not only did our grandparents get a peek into our classrooms, but they had an opportunity to be entertained with musical performances by our very talented students.
In addition to the program, grandparents got to attend our Annual Book Fair and buy some early Christmas presents. The fair was such a success that we’ve qualified for $1,000 worth of new books from our vendor that will add to our ever-increasing BCA Media Center. Thank you to all our grandparents who came and made the day special and to all of you for the positive and profound impact you have on all of us.
