"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."
1 Timothy 4:12

BSBA middle school provides a caring environment to help our students flourish during these formative years.  The middle school is located in its own building and has both a computer lab and a high school quality science lab. Our beautiful facility has an indoor gymnasium, extensive outdoor sports fields, state of the art kitchen (which provides hot lunches), video room for a “morning show” and a media center.

In our middle school, we strive to provide a safe learning environment with an emphasis on developing Christian character.   We seek to teach Biblical truth and help students learn to apply these truths to build relationships and to navigate the middle school years.

The curriculum is rigorous to prepare students for honors and AP high school coursework.  Advanced courses are offered in math and science for students.  Eighth graders can take high school courses in math, science, Spanish.   In addition, through our partnership with FLVS, 8th graders can take high school courses online, such as Leadership and HOPE. Our STEM program offers robotics classes for 6th and 7th graders.  Students who are interested in robotics may choose to become a member of our FLL team and participate in area competitions.
