A Message From Principal Landgrave...

Next Friday’s Talent Show will take place in the gym at 2:30 and the Art Fair will follow until 4:00 pm. Our hope is that parents will come early to watch the talent show and stay to view all the beautiful artwork the children have produced this year.


Congratulations to our track athletes. They performed well in the bright hot sun on Monday.

Did You Know???

May is pretty exclusive when it comes to days of the week. No other month in one single year starts or finishes on the same weekday as May. Basically, if the first of May is on a Friday, and the 31st of May is on a Sunday, no other months in the year will start or end on a Friday or a Sunday!

Enjoying the Warm Weather

A Note from our Director of Marketing & Enrollment - Mrs. Bateman

As we begin to prepare for the next school year, it's helpful to remind ourselves why families choose a Lutheran education for their children. Here are just a few of the many reasons...
  • Christian. Our faith gives us a worldview in which we see God active in the world around us. For this reason, faith and education go hand in hand. Our teachers set an example of mature faith for our students. Every classroom has daily devotions and the whole school participates in weekly chapel services.
  • Private, Independent and Traditional. We are proud to provide our students with a classic and traditional education. Because we are a private education institution, we have the ability to search for the best curriculum for our students. While at the same time keeping up with new educational needs.
  • Ideal Student-to-Teacher Ratio. Because of our ideal student-to-teacher ratio, each student at our school receives the individual attention that they need. For those students who may need some additional tutoring or special education care, we have education specialists who travel to our school, on a weekly basis as needed, to give those students that extra help they need.
  • Opportunity. We want our students to be well-rounded. At BIA, our students have many opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities such as athletics, art Club, talent show, community service projects, and much more.
  • Parental Involvement. Another advantage of BIA is our ability to welcome parental involvement throughout the school year. We understand the importance of the presence of parents helping out in our classrooms, attending our weekly chapel services, and supporting our after-school events. YOU are a very important piece of the education process!
Thank you for choosing a Lutheran education for your child!
