Bergen County Christian Academy began as Hackensack Christian Schools in 1972 with prayer and a group of dedicated believers with a burden and a vision for providing a quality Christian education for students with an emphasis on Biblical teaching in all subjects and disciplines. The blessings of God became evident as parents asked the school leaders to add more classes and, in just 2 years, HCS was able to offer a full Pre-K thru 12th grade program.
Many classes were located in the Bible School Building, and the school also rented classrooms in the nearby First Presbyterian Church when classrooms in the Bible School Building were filled.
In 1977, a building program to construct the Leach Memorial Building began, which included several classrooms, two science labs, a kitchen, locker rooms, and a gymnasium.
In 2016, the Academy Education Committee, in order to reach a larger community of the greater Bergen County region, decided to rename the Hackensack Christian Schools to Bergen County Christian Academy effective September 2016.
God has blessed our school with a positive spiritual attitude. His faithfulness continues today as we work in partnership with parents to educate young people in the context of Biblical truths and Christ-centered values to enrich the lives of the students we are honored to serve.
