“Parenting is fun again after our son attended Brush Creek Academy. It is wonderful to watch them make bad and good choices and learn from them. We can’t thank BCA enough. We have a huge prayer list praying for the staff and every day. We believe in what BCA is doing. God bless all the staff.” – Robin G.
