Since 1992 BHCA has offered a quality, Bible-based education with the mission of "Instilling Christian Principles with C.A.R.E.: C - Christ Centered, A - Academic Excellence, R - Relationship Focused, E - Excellence Driven". BHCA is non-denominational and is not associated with any church or any groups using the BHCA facilities. Currently we have 28 different churches in the area represented by our staff and students. 

We are using the best Christ-centered curriculum that will challenge and engage your student(s) academically along with Christian certified teachers who will add creativity, individualized attention, and Bible integration into each subject. Our goal at BHCA is our Vision Statement - Every student equipped to impact the world for Christ.
Our theme for 2016-2017 is "Committed...for life!" taken from the Newsboy's song "Committed". Our verse for the year is from Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

Please let us know if we can help you in any way to start your journey to Christian education at Black Hills Christian Academy. We believe strongly that we are making a difference for eternity at BHCA.
