Bent Mountain Christian Academy is located in a rural and agricultural community on a Blue Ridge Mountain plateau, two thousand feet above the Roanoke Valley. This environment lends itself to a network of opportunities for local field trips and hands-on science.
The basics and foundational skills are emphasized in all grades in math, phonics, spelling, handwriting, and reading. Children are individually tested for placement in reading and math. BMCA is devoted to a Christian worldview in all aspects of the academy, from the combination classroom subjects and settings, the individualized scheduling for remediation or advancement, to the regular outdoor activities and picnic days. Bible, the sciences, history, outdoor-centered physical education, and English are some of the required subjects for all the students.
