After Care

After Care

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 kindergarten through 5th grade students.  The Middle School After-School Program is for 6th through 8th graders.

SCHEDULE:   After-School will begin on BCA’s first full school day and end the last full 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, unless listed below.  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.
