haystack.jpgMission Statement

Blue Ridge Christian Academy offers a non-denominational Christ-centered education that helps children reach their maximum potential through training in Biblical truths, pursuing academic excellence, and embracing aspects of a classical Christian education.

Vision Statement

Blue Ridge Christian Academy seeks to glorify God by partnering with parents to impart to children a Christian worldview and skills that will make them effective in impacting the world for Christ. 

Purpose Statement

The ministry of BRCA exists so that families in the area can choose Kingdom education for their children in grades K4 through 12.  Kingdom education is defined as “the life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child to Christ, building a child up in Christ, and equipping a child to serve Christ.”  It involves the integration and application of biblical truths provided in the Bible to areas of biblical worldview, educational programs and activities, and personal development and maturity.  Students are directed to take captive every thought in obedience to Christ.  (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).  By doing this, they bring glory to God as they impact the world for Christ. 

Philosophy

Blue Ridge Christian Academy seeks to hold Christ at the center of all we believe and do.  God instructs us to hide His Word in our hearts and minds, and to teach it continually to our children (Deuteronomy 11:18-21).  God’s truth is authoritative and is expressed in the Bible.  BRCA believes that Biblical truth is the foundation for the proper understanding of all academic subjects and desires to impart to its students a Christian worldview for both learning and living.  We see that the role of BRCA is to come alongside parents in the northern Greenville County of South Carolina and neighboring communities in North Carolina in training their children to impact the world for Christ.  BRCA recognizes that each child needs to be challenged to mature spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially and physically (Luke 2:52).  In order to do this, we will encourage students toward a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (spiritual), provide college-preparatory curriculum (mental), hire personnel that teach and model Biblical truths and Christ-like character while shepherding students’ hearts (spiritual, mental, emotional, and social), and provide opportunities for each child’s God-given talents and gifts to develop (physical, mental) for His glory.

Core Values

As BRCA endeavors to fulfill its mission and to realize its vision, our ministry is characterized by the following core values:

Truth. We will teach and model biblical truth in order to accomplish several objectives of BRCA: leading children to a personal knowledge of and relationship with Jesus Christ, modeling Christian character, teaching that biblical truth is the foundation for the proper understanding of all academic subjects, and teaching application of biblical principles to every part of daily life.

Service. We will encourage development of hearts of service by modeling it to the BRCA community. Students will be encouraged to develop their gifts and talents from the Lord in order to serve Him in the manner designed by Him.

Excellence. The curriculum used, opportunities offered, and focus on shepherding hearts will equip students academically and otherwise for college and, more importantly, to impact the world for Christ.Partnership. We will come alongside parents in their primary role of training their child.

Accountability. The BRCA community is encouraged to be responsible, respectful and productive in their attitudes and actions.

School Themes

Scripture: “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine powers to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3 – 5

Motto: “Equipping students to impact the world for Christ”
