IT TAKES A VILLAGE…
There is so much growth that happens during this stage in our students’ lives. Our goal is to come alongside and build them up mentally, spiritually, and emotionally so that they can influence their world for Christ. This is embedded in our school culture and lived out throughout the year in different ways. We are so thankful for the community of parents, volunteers, locals, and ministry partners that surround our school in prayer and help pour life and truth into both students and staff alike.
Our students attend chapel every week for a time of worship and hearing from a staff or guest speaker.
We regularly challenge them to examine their personal relationship with Christ and explore ways it can be lived out. Many of our students are involved in small groups led by a staff member or adult from our community and are able to form a close-knit group over their years here.

SOMETIMES WE ALL NEED A LITTLE BIT OF HELP
We have licensed counselors on staff that are available for individual and family counseling free of charge. There can be a lot of common struggles during adolescence – depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other emotional concerns or behavioral issues. Our goal is to provide biblically-based counseling and guide our students to develop lasting tools and resilience for the years ahead.
Do you as a family need counseling? We have a number of partnerships and counseling resources available for families or Christian workers coming through our area and we would be happy to make connections.
For over three decades it has been our privilege to have a large Asian demographic in our student body. We have a dedicated staff member and a number of other volunteers in our community who provide cultural training to our staff, social events for our students, and also assist families in navigating education options and translation questions.
THERE’S NO PLACE QUITE LIKE ‘HERE’
WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE IT, YOU’LL KNOW WHAT WE MEAN
We might be a bit biased, but here is something intangibly special about our community. There are many who walk through our doors – guests, neighbors, visiting sports teams, accrediting organizations, you name it – and say “this place is different…why?” Some of it has to do with the very unified purpose of the many Christian workers who call this area home and have a heart of service. All of it has to do with the glory, provision, and grace of God.
Welcome to BFA. We’re glad you’re here.
