Bridgeway Christian Academy (BCA) is pleased to offer a quality program for students in grades K – 8 after the end of the scheduled school day.

  • The opportunity to read and take reading counts quizzes.

  • Supervised playground time and recreational activities to enhance fitness.

Program Hours

The Lion’s Den operates every school day during the year from 3:00 pm (12:00 pm on Fridays and early release days) until 6:00 pm Monday – Friday.  The Lion’s Den is not available on school holidays, teacher workdays or the last days of school for the semester (December 20, 2019 and May 21, 2020).

  • Students that are not picked up by the end of regular carpool (3:15 pm) will join the Lion’s Den for supervision.
  • Parents are required to come in to the school lobby to pick up their student(s).
  • If someone else is picking up the student(s), the parent must notify BCA and that person must be on the approved pick-up list and show a form of ID.  We will not release a student to someone not on the list.
