BCA Faculty & Staff.

Jesus said, “When a student is fully trained, he will be like his teacher.” (Luke 6:40)

Teachers are the architects of a school’s culture, and they serve as role models for their students. Bridgeway has always been blessed with the most dedicated teachers and staff available. Our faculty is made up of certified, seasoned educators.  Most importantly, our teachers are nurturing, Christ-centered individuals who are as committed to our students’ spiritual development as they are to academic success.
