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 2017-2018 is "Transformed" which is taken from Romans 12:2, "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." We want our students to live out their faith like the song, "Live Like That" by Sidewalk Prophets.

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.
