What is academic rigor?

We define academic rigor as the educational experience that engages students in content appropriate to their academic level and helps them learn to analyze, evaluate, and ultimately create.


Every class students take should challenge them to learn and to connect what they are learning with other subject material. English and math classes, for example, should not be viewed as entirely unrelated. Students should understand how concepts they learn in one subject are related to concepts learned in another subject.


Bethany Christian Academy primarily uses Bob Jones University (BJU) curriculum.


BJU Press is committed to Christian education. BJU supports Christian education by producing textbooks and materials that shape a biblical worldview, are academically rigorous, encourage critical thinking, and are supported with technology solutions


BCA also utilizes some curriculum from Abeka and ACSI.  Please feel free to download the curriculum list below.

Why choose a private Christian school?  Please take a moment to view the video below from C.A.P.E.  

Private schools benefit students by fostering academic excellence and high achievement, educating the whole child within a values-based setting, and preparing youngsters for success in life. If you want a caring, challenging, nurturing, safe and secure environment for your child--a place where he/she can learn and succeed--consider Bethany Christian Academy.  Please take a moment to view the video below from CAPE (Council for American Private Education).
