Homeschool Cooperative Program
It is the desire of BCA to assist parents in their God-given responsibility to educate their children, whether they choose a traditional school environment or homeschooling. BCA’s Homeschool Cooperative is for students whose families are committed to homeschooling as an educational choice and desire outside courses to supplement their homeschool curriculum. Homeschool parents who participate in this program are responsible for reporting BCA courses and grades to their school districts. Parents will have access to their child’s grades and homework completion records online through RenWeb for grades 4-12.
Elementary Grades K-6
Homeschool Cooperative students can choose from special studio art, music and physical education classes. Other classes can be determined on a per case basis, please call the office to schedule an appointment.
Middle School and High School Grades 7-12
We offer our junior and senior high school classes to homeschool students as space allows. Cooperative students may take up to two academic classes per semester, plus up to two electives if desired. Tentative class schedules will be available in March. A placement test is required for those registering for a math, Spanish or science class. A reading comprehension/language test may be required for those registering for an English or history class. Please see our Middle or High School page to see courses offered and then call to schedule an appointment to discuss detailed coursework and scheduling.
Students are also welcome to attend and participate in numerous school activities, assemblies, fundraisers, cafeteria lunch hour, and much more throughout the year. Homeschool Cooperative students grades 7-12 may join our soccer, basketball, and/or volleyball teams. BCA is a member of the Empire State Christian Athletic League.
