School Board.

Q: Who makes up your school board?

A: The school is governed by the Bridgeway Foundation for Education. The BFE Board of Directors consists of Bridgeway appointed members who may or may not be Bridgeway Church members or BCA parents. New members are nominated and appointed by the BFE. The BCA Head of School and Bridgeway Church Senior Pastor are ex-officio members of the BFE Board. All members except the Head of School are voting members. Ex-officio members hold a permanent position on the BFE Board.
