Bethel Christian Academy operates a ministry to families of BCA students who need child care during the after-school hours on school days. This ministry is called Bethel After-School Program. When BCA is closed “Bethel After-School” is closed.
MISSION AND PURPOSE: Bethel’s After-School Program strives to support families whose children attend BCA by providing Christian supervision to those children who remain at school after 3:00.
PROGRAM: The Elementary After-School Program is for children age five through 4th grade. The Middle School After-School Program is for 5th through 8th graders.
SCHEDULE: After-School will begin on BCA’s first school day and end the last day of school. We are open on BCA school days from 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Noon – 5:30 p.m. on ½ school days. The Middle School Program will be a study hall environment from 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. Somedays at 4:30, the Middle School will join the Elementary After-School.
