BCA was born as a response to missionary parents in Mali needing a school providing an affordable, quality education in English, based on biblical principles and beliefs.

These parents associated themselves under the Mali government as the Mali Educational Association (MEA). Before the end of the year 2005, this association through the generous help of other schools in West Africa whose doors had closed - opened the doors to BCA. The school, now a member of ACSI, offers grades Kindergarten through 8th and serves predominately, but not exclusively, missionary families who work in Mali.

More than just a school, BCA has partnered with home schooling families by being a professional resource in education. Presently, it provides curriculum, library services, and shared opportunities in school outings and programs.  The full-time teaching staff are all self-supported through mission organizations and take joy in serving in this supportive role. BCA is always seeking qualified teachers with a heart for missions.
