Donate Books to Our Library
Donate used and new children books to our library. If the library can’t use them, the books go to the classroom or home with our children who often don’t have books there to read. The school library does not accept paperback books.
Donate to Our Book Club
Donate used and new adult and children’s books to our Book Warriors Club (“We sell books”) – The Book Warriors Club is a business operated by our middle school students in our After School Enrichment Program as part of the Financial Literacy Educational Program. You can find their books for sale on Amazon.com. They take all hardback and paperback books except encyclopedias, magazines, and out of date textbooks. Any books they don’t post to Amazon.com go to our school library. Provide us with your contact information.
Buy from the BCA Book Warriors Club
Buy an attractively priced book for yourself, your child, family or friend. Our children in the After School Enrichment Program operate the club as a business. The club’s goals are to teach entrepreneurship and financial literacy. They price books to sell, manage the club’s expenses and strive for five star customer satisfaction. Funds raised from the club go toward children’s mission trips, field trips and related activities and resources of the program. Contact us for more information.
Help Us Spread the Word
We would love to speak at your organization or church! Tari Harris, our Head of School, would enjoy talking with your organization about serving in the inner city and why Binghampton Christian Academy is so important to our city and our nation.
There are plenty of day-to-day materials that we are always happy to take donations of, including uniforms, school supplies (pencils, crayons, notebooks, etc.), stamps, and paper. In addition, our asphalt playground quickly destroys our kickballs, basketballs and footballs, so we are frequently in need of replacements. To view a full list of supplies that we need throughout the year, click here.
