Senior Theme Verse Retreat
Each summer before the start of school, the senior class takes a retreat to prepare for the upcoming year. While away, the group makes two decisions for the entire student body that are important aspects of life at BA. They choose the theme verse for the upcoming school year, and they choose the school service project for the year.
2016-2017 Theme Verse—Ephesians 4:1-3
Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.
