Enrollment fees must be paid before the start of school. Tuition payments, if paid monthly, are due the first school day of each month. Please notify the Office Manager in advance when there is a problem paying fees on time. No documents of any kind (report cards, transcripts, visa application letters, etc) will be released to a student or parent until all fees are paid. A limited amount of assistance is available. Please contact the Office Staff if tuition assistance is needed.
Bus transportation for BCA students is provided to and from Belmopan every school day. The bus picks students up at 7:30 am in front of Angelus Press, at the tennis courts, and at the Comprehensive School sidewalk. The bus leaves BCA at 2:45 in the afternoon and drops students at the same stops. Also, a bus runs from San Ignacio to BCA in the mornings and back again in the afternoons. The bus leaves San Ignacio at 7:00 am.
All students should arrive between 7:30 and 7:50 am to be ready for class promptly at 8:00. All students should be picked up promptly at the end of school, and no student should remain after school without pre-arrangement with a teacher. Failure to have your child at school on time will result in a “Tardy” and hinders your child’s education and character development. Failure to pick up your child immediately after school creates a hardship for staff, and more importantly, it makes your child anxious.
All students will be required to be in uniform.
The uniform consists consist of a BCA polo shirt and blue bottoms.
Primary school students may wear navy blue pants, skirts, or knee-shorts.
High school students may wear navy blue pants or skirts.
Please contact the office staff for information/purchase of school badges and P.E uniforms, limited uniform sizes are available.
Many BCA students bring lunch to school. A licensed food handler also acts as a vendor for BCA. Students may order hot lunches daily. Please avoid high sugar foods as it does affect a student’s energy level and ability to concentrate. Soft drinks are not allowed on campus. More details can be obtained about this arrangement from the Office Staff.
One of our goals at Belize Christian Academy is to help each student develop
good Christian character. We believe that school is an extension of the home.
We commit ourselves to work with you to train and nurture Christ centered character
development and use sound principles of discipline. Discipline will be administered
in a firm and consistent manner with love and a caring attitude.
Our general strategy for handling disciplinary matters is as follows: First, student discipline is addressed within the framework of each teacher’s classroom management policies. When misbehavior becomes chronic, students receive a Corrective Action Notice along with natural and appropriate consequences. The Corrective Action Notice is a formal disciplinary report that is sent home to notify parents that unacceptable behavior needs to be addressed in a more serious way.
Please bring along an official transcript copy of report card from previous schools attended and P.S.E results to be reviewed by the principal.
If accepted to Belize Christian Academy, there are a number of other steps that must be completed before a student is officially enrolled.

High school students transferring into BCA from other institutions will have their transcripts and test results evaluated to determine grade placement and credits earned. Students who transfer in the middle of an academic year will receive 0.5 credits for the work done at their transferring school and 0.5 credits from BCA; they will be required to retake courses if a failing grade has been obtained.
A transferring Grade 12 student must meet the graduation requirements for BCA in order to participate in the graduation ceremonies and receive a diploma.
