Opportunity to Share and Teach in Mini-Courses

Our 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders will be participating in our annual "Mini-Courses" each Friday in February from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. These are designed to give students an opportunity to learn subjects outside of the normal classroom curriculum. 

We need volunteers to help so that we can offer as many class options as possible. Do you have a special talent in jewelry making, sewing, needlepoint, origami, scrapbooking, fitness, Minecraft, knitting, dessert/treat making or a talent that you could share? Please contact Brittany Webb at [email protected] if you would be willing to volunteer for four Fridays in February (60 minutes each) to share your skill or craft.

Super Bowl LIII is Sunday is Feb. 3. On Friday, Feb. 1 we will have a school wide Super Bowl Team Day. Students may wear jeans with a shirt/jersey supporting their favorite team for the Super Bowl, or they may just wear a shirt of their favorite team's color. Teams TBD.

Field Trip for Kindergarten - 8th Grade - Wed., Feb. 6
On Wed., Feb. 6, our Kindergarten through 8th grade students will be attending the annual Young People's Concert at the Tivoli Theater. The Young People's Concerts feature the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera in a program of great symphonic classics, illustrating the instruments and sections of the symphony orchestra. Symphonic Voyagers 2019, an original program co-created by narrator Carey Shinbaum and Maestro Kayoko Dan, is an educational and interactive show for young audiences that invites students to explore the music inspired by NASA's Voyager Golden Record mission.
Dr. Harr will be teaching the students about this concert in music class in the coming weeks, in order to prepare them as much as possible, so they can thoroughly enjoy this special musical event. Our visits from the CSO woodwind and string quintets last semester really peaked our interest, and we can't wait to experience the full orchestra in its own performance venue!

Cost: $5 per ticket (Parents are also welcome to attend.)
Cash or check payable to: Belvoir Christian Academy (memo line: Tivoli Field Trip)

Transportation: Bus (for students and teachers) to leave school at 10:30 a.m. and arrive back at school by 2 p.m. 
Please pack a light lunch for your K - 8th grade child to eat before we leave school, as well as a snack for them to eat upon our return.
Permission slips were sent home this week and must be returned to your child's homeroom teacher by Fri., Feb 1. Please make plans to join us if you can!
It's Time for Re-enrollment for 2019-2020 - 
For Rising Kindergarten - Rising 8th Grade Families!

Last year was our first year to introduce ONLINE re-enrollment. This year, re-enrollment for rising kindergarten through rising 8th grade students is mandatory. You will be able to complete this process easily through your HeadMaster Online login, following the below steps.
If your account is current, you may log into your account to re-enroll by:
  • Signing into HeadMaster Online (Enter user name and password. Please note you will be directed to create a new password if you have not done so already.) 
  • Review each tab of data and update where necessary
  • Click on the Enrollment tab
  • Click on your child's name
  • Click the submit button
  • Submit the enrollment deposit through HeadMaster Online or submit payment of cash, check or credit card to the BCA Business Office.

Enrollment Deposit by March 1, 2019.

The enrollment deposit is a non-refundable deposit of 5% of the listed tuition and will be applied to your tuition balance.  It is due along with the online re-enrollment by March 1, 2019. 

Re-enrollment after March 1 requires an additional $200 non-refundable enrollment deposit which does not apply to tuition.


The deadline to apply for Variable Tuition  is 
 March 1 for returning students. Available funds will be allocated at that time as we can only offer Variable Tuition within our school policy, practices and available budget.
