A precocious young sixth grader ascended the dais stairs and stood behind the podium at the recent Middle School Student Council elections. A candidate for sixth grade class representative, he pledged to serve all middle school students. Then, with all the poise and gravity of a seasoned statesman, he implored his peers, “let us recall the famous words from Proverbs 29:18” and “join together to create a common vision for the middle school.”

The moment was as endearing as it was impressive. In the context of this student’s life, that speech – and his forthcoming service as a class representative (he was elected, of course!) – are momentous and formative. In a larger context, this moment is a beautiful microcosm of the BCA experience. It’s all about a singular vision that unifies and propels everything we do: students leading by serving – not in some distant adult future, but now.
That’s why we’re re-naming our annual fund the “Vision Fund”: our annual fundraising is directed with focus and energy toward realizing that vision in the lives of our students.

That vision plays out in lower school “inquiry projects,” with students formulating research questions, conducting investigations in class an off campus, and reporting their findings to the community. It plays out in high school “VBL-X” (vision-based learning experience) internships – professional placements that help students to intertwine their in-class learning, their career goals, and their Kingdom calling. It plays out in a wide range of on and off-campus activities undertaken with the Inspiration Team, a growing network of Christian leaders in business and other realms who partner with our faculty to “inspire students to discover the relevance of learning and the sacredness of work.” It plays out in our new SPAN program – a K-12 proficiency-based approach to language instruction designed to help all student harness the power of bilingualism for work, travel, friendship, and ministry. It plays out everywhere, every day. This isn’t about static knowledge or rote memorization – it’s about learning that is contextualized, meaningful, and transformative. It’s about a powerful vision for students’ lives and, ultimately, for all the lives those students will touch.

The Vision Fund is a crucial driver of that vision, and a great opportunity for you to be part of it. Please support this endeavor at a level that signals your support for this vision, and consider inviting others in your circle to join you as well. 
On behalf of all the students and faculty, thank you!
