WELCOME BACK BCCA FAMILIES

We are excited to see all of you again at BCCA! The new school year has begun at Big Cove Christian Academy under the leadership of our Principal, Mr. Lucas Smith. We began the new year with a time of united prayer for our teachers and students in each of the classrooms. We solicit all of your prayers each day as you intercede for our teachers and our students, as we endeavor to instill Christ's character in them.
