Life Academy

Jeremiah 29:11

Life Academy began as Bloomington Christian School (BCS) in the fall of 1995. In 2005, the name changed to Life Academy and continues the BCS mission, "to provide excellence in education in an atmosphere of safety and love while preparing and equipping school-age children for the purposes God has for them".

This year’s theme is “Desire to Grow” based on Ephesians 4:11-16. Teachers, staff, and students will specifically focus on growing in faith, goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love (2 Peter 1:5-8) as we study God’s Word together.

It is our expectation that each year the students grow and mature intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. We believe that the partnership between Life Academy, home, and church will ensure their success and their growth. Life Academy seeks to help lay a foundation for students so they may be built up and able to stand against “every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people” (Ephesians 4:14) that they may encounter in the world, both today and in their future.

Life Academy also places purpose and focus on service to the community and to less advantaged countries.  In previous school years, our students worked together to rake lawns for the surrounding neighbors, collected shoe boxes and served at Operation Christmas Child packaging facility, served on campus to paint, clean, and organize specific areas in our facility, and put together "Blessing Bags" for the local police department. Also, a group of 8th grade students traveled to Guatemala to serve for one week at an orphanage near Guatemala City. Our service plans are similar for the 2017/2018 school-year.

Life Academy is considered a ministry of LifeChurch, however the School maintains responsibility for separate budget and operating expenses.  In order to serve the families called to our school, we endeavor to keep our tuition as low as possible. Life Academy is not a school supported by endowments or yet sponsored by any corporation of generous largess. We are seeking resources to support the mission and purpose of our school without putting additional financial strain on our families.

Our most pressing financial need is for scholarships. Life Academy also seeks funds for a playground upgrade, an intercom system, a small school bus, supplies for service projects, and supplies for the annual mission trip to Guatemala.  Any and all support for technology updates (Interactive whiteboard, Mimio, Chromebooks) is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact the School for additional information.

Life Academy is fully accredited through Minnesota Non-public School Accreditation Association (MNSAA).
