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". 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 2015-2016 is "Rise Above the Typical" using the song "Impossible" by Building 429. Our verse is Ephesians 3:20-21 - "Now to HIm who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen."
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.
