January 09, 2013Founded in 1998, the model behind the educational program at Bridgeway Christian Academy (BCA) has always been Jesus Christ. While reflected in the philosophy, curriculum, and programs across all grade levels, this model is perhaps most evident in the spiritual growth BCA students experience during their time there. Service opportunities help reach the hearts of students, enabling them to discover and use their unique talents and gifts to help others as an extension of Christ, all the while challenging them and strengthening their spiritual walk.
Bridgeway partners with local organizations throughout the school year to provide students with a variety of opportunities to serve. Most recently BCA middle schoolers served at the CURE Pediatric Cancer Christmas party held in downtown Atlanta. BCA students were "host elves" to the party guests and their families throughout the event. Two fifth grade classes at BCA celebrated the Christmas season with residents in nearby senior living facilities; and this past fall BCA partnered with FLOOD Student Ministries to co-host a fall festival at The Garden, a shelter for homeless women and children.
Service is a special gift says BCA Head of School, Rob Starner. "While serving others may not come naturally to all of us, the experience brings such joy to the life of the person being served, as well as to the person who is serving; our students can't help but be changed by it."
An Open House for rising preschoolers through eighth grade students is scheduled for Sunday, January 13th, from 2 – 4 pm.

Bridgeway is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
